Common Causes of NC Spinal Cord Personal Injuries

The sensitive spine is something that is often injured in a personal injury accident, especially in:

  • Car Accidents
  • Truck Accidents
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents

The jarring impact an accident has on the body means that the delicate nerves running down the spine are damaged on minor or major levels. Signs and symptoms that you may be dealing with a spinal cord injury include:

  • Circulation issues
  • Impaired strength and coordination
  • Stinging sensation in spinal cord
  • Loss of function in certain parts of the body
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Bladder and bowel control issues
  • Breathing issues

A very common ancillary issue that victims of spinal cord injuries have is some level of depression and mental health struggles. When you have been injured because of someone or something else’s negligence, you need to file a personal injury lawsuit with Tatum & Atkinson. You should not have to take on this struggle and financial burden on your own and a winning lawsuit with us can make sure you don’t.

How Much is Your Spinal Cord Injury Worth?

Spinal cord injuries are often permanent life-changing injuries for accident victims as well as their families. Whether you are dealing with aches and pains or permanently handicapped now, a spinal cord injury can be worth a lot of money when your case is handled correctly. Starting with working with your doctors and other medical professionals to fully document the nature and extent of your current costs and future needs, our goal is to make sure your settlement fully reflects what you need and how the accident has impacted your life. The spine is never the only injury that accident victims suffer, and your financial recovery is intended to take into account all of your injuries.

Spinal cord injuries can be worth millions of dollars if the evidence, liability and money is there. Here are some things you can get money for:

  • Current and future medical bills
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy needs
  • Disability
  • Missed work/ inability to work/ change in work ability
  • Medication
  • Loss of consortium
  • Pain and suffering
  • And more

In some instances, punitive damages are available for personal injury and wrongful death cases involving spine injuries. While rare, this is always something we will aggressively pursue if it is an option and greatly increases the potential value of your case.

North Carolina is a pure contributory negligence state which means that if you played a role in your accident (even a small one), you will be barred from filing a civil personal injury lawsuit for money. This difficult and strict analysis standard is just one of the many reasons why you want to make sure that you are working with a law firm that has experience winning cases that deal with your specific accident and specific injuries. We know how to place the full liability where it belongs to make sure that you can get paid.
