Diagnosing and Treating Spinal Cord Injuries

After suffering spinal cord damage, a medical professional can perform different diagnostic tests. The tests reveal the location and severity of your spinal cord injury. A doctor may administer:

  • CT scans to view your spinal injury from different angles
  • X-rays to diagnose fractured or dislocated spinal cord vertebrae
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to generate images of your internal organs and the surrounding structures

In addition, a medical professional may conduct a neurological exam. During this evaluation, the doctor will assess your sensitivity to touch, reflexes, and mobility. The test helps the doctor get a clearer understanding of the full scope of your spinal cord injury.

Who Is Liable for My Spinal Cord Damages?

Any person or entity who contributed to your accident may be held liable for your spinal cord damages. Examples of at-fault parties include:

  • Motor vehicle drivers and owners
  • Property owners
  • Construction contractors
  • Property managers
  • Commercial vehicle owners

However, to collect compensation from liable parties or insurance companies, you must prove how their actions caused your accident. Our spinal cord injury lawyers in the Bronx can review your case, distinguish who is liable, and collect evidence to prove how they contributed to your injuries.

Causation Is the Key to Winning Compensation

To win compensation for you, we must be able to prove that the damages you suffered were due to a negligent party’s actions. Our spinal cord lawyers do this by establishing:

  • Duty of care: The liable party had an obligation to exhibit reasonable care.
  • Breach of duty: The at-fault person or entity violated their duty of care.
  • Causation: The responsible party’s actions directly resulted in your spinal cord injury.
  • Damages: You sustained injuries and damages  due to your spinal cord injury.

As you concentrate on your spinal cord recovery and rehabilitation, our injury lawyers will build your case. We interview witnesses, medical experts, and accident reconstructionists to prove how negligence caused your damages. In doing so, we can secure maximum compensation for you and your family.

How You Can Help Build Your Bronx Injury Case

Our team will handle all the legal aspects of your case, but there are things that you can do to build a strong case and speed up the litigation process.

Follow Your Doctor’s Orders

Comply with all of your doctor’s advice and directions. If you stop attending doctor’s appointments or disobey your doctor’s orders, this may weaken your spinal injury claim.

Avoid Discussing Your Accident Injuries with Strangers

After your accident, you may receive calls or visits from strangers who claim to be investigating your accident. Unfortunately, these individuals may not have your best interests in mind. 

You must speak with a lawyer before you make a statement to anyone who reaches out to you. Once you hire a lawyer, you should not give any information to strangers, even if they claim to be from an insurance company. Always consult with your lawyer first.

Be Aware of New York’s Injury Lawsuit Time Limit

New York has a time limit for filing injury lawsuits. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the necessary deadline, the court can prevent you from receiving a settlement for your spinal cord damage.

Our team will make sure all necessary legal documents get filed within the necessary time limits so you can collect the financial recovery you deserve.

Recognizing the Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury

Research suggests that 17,810 Americans sustain a spinal cord injury per year, and 1,100 of these cases are New Yorkers. A spinal cord injury can affect the body in many different ways, and the symptoms include:

  • Pain in the head, back, or neck
  • Loss of sensation or motor function below the injured area
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Tingling in the fingers, feet, toes, or hands
  • Incontinence or difficulty retaining bodily waste fluids
  • Better functioning in one leg, arm, or side of the body
  • Chest tightness

If you have any of the above spinal cord injury symptoms, seek a diagnosis from a medical health care provider immediately. Medical documentation of your injuries is also powerful evidence, and your attorney will use it when building your case.

Complete Spinal Cord Injuries

Medical professionals define spinal cord damages as complete when they cause a total loss of movement or sensory functions. The injury severs communication between spinal cord nerves and the brain, leading to complete paralysis. Tetraplegia (also known as quadriplegia) is a type of complete spinal cord injury.

Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries

An incomplete spinal cord injury causes one area of the body to lose functionality. However, it is not as severe as a complete spinal cord injury and allows nerve signals to continue traveling from the spinal cord to the brain. 

The level of movement and paralysis among people with incomplete spinal cord injuries varies greatly. A person’s age, health, and past medical history can affect the severity of these types of spinal cord damages.
