Spinal Cord Injuries from Truck Accidents

The American Spinal Cord Injury Association has found that nearly half of all spinal cord injuries are sustained in motor vehicle accidents, a good portion of which involve large commercial vehicles. There is no question that truck accidents can result in significant personal injury. However, there is a distinct difference between a severe injury that can be recovered from and a spinal cord injury. In many cases, once damaged, the spinal cord cannot repair itself, making the consequences of these injuries permanent. When you sustain a spinal cord injury in a truck accident, you deserve compensation for medical expenses, long term rehabilitation, lifestyle modifications, adaptive technologies and home modifications, current and future lost wages, and your personal pain and suffering. With over 20 years of experience, Bakersfield truck accident lawyer Mickey Fine knows exactly what needs to be done to ensure you are awarded the maximum compensation you are due. Serious Consequences Spinal cord injuries come with serious consequences. Of course, the portion of your spine that has been damaged will determine the level of function you lose, but even a minor spinal cord injury can result in lifelong issues including: Paralysis Loss of motor function Loss of physical sensation Respiratory problems Sexual dysfunction Over-activity of the nervous system, potentially resulting in death These injuries may require extensive rehabilitation along with adaptive technologies such as wheelchairs to allow for even a fraction of your previous functions to be restored. Home modifications and special care may also be necessary following a spinal cord injury, further compounding your financial losses. If your spinal cord injury is the result of a truck accident, you deserve compensation for all of your damages. Our Bakersfield truck accident lawyer is prepared to take your case as far as necessary to ensure you receive full compensation.
