A car crash can cause someone’s life to change in the blink of an eye, especially when a devastating spinal cord injury occurs. Fortunately very few people experience this, but for those who do, life for them and their families will never be the same.
Motor vehicle collisions are the leading cause of a spinal cord injury. That is understandable given the size and speed of vehicles involved in a crash. Other variables like the angle of impact, body position, seatbelts, and airbags affect the severity.
The injured victim will need to take immediate action so that they can get the medical treatment they need and have sufficient financial resources in the future.
We strongly discourage someone with any case, let alone a catastrophic injury like this, from relying on the generosity of the other driver’s insurance company. A spinal cord injury is life-changing. Medical and other expenses will be extremely expensive. A lawsuit will need to be filed and a personal injury lawyer needs to lay the proper groundwork to prove your damages. The sooner you consult with an experienced car accident lawyer, the better.
