Does a Spinal Cord Injury Affect the Brain?
A spinal cord injury can affect the brain. If a reckless person’s actions caused your spinal cord injury, you have the right to seek justice in our legal system. The experienced and dedicated lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP are ready to help you with your claim.
You may be entitled to seek substantial financial compensation for each and every aspect of your damages including pain and suffering caused by your physical and emotional injuries, medical expenses, and lost wages. Holding a party or parties accountable for their actions is your right under the law and your claim may even prevent others from being harmed.
A spinal cord injury can have a devastating impact on the brain. According to Mayo Clinic, a spinal cord injury may cause permanent changes in the body’s functions, including the ability to feel or move. Regardless of the severity of your injuries, if your injuries were the result of someone else’s fault seek legal representation from the lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP as soon as possible after your accident so that we can begin to protect your rights and get to work fighting for you.
How a Spinal Cord Injury Affects the Brain
A spinal cord injury can have a serious impact on the brain by affecting cognitive function.
According to Neural Regeneration Research (NRR), patients with a spinal cord injury may experience complications with:
- Memory function
- Processing speed
These are just a few examples of how a spinal cord injury can impact brain function. If you or a loved one experiences these issues due to your spinal cord injury, you can see firsthand how these injuries can impact your daily life. Simple tasks may require assistance from personal care providers after a spinal cord injury, resulting in extraordinary expenses.
Data from NRR also shows that 60 percent of patients with a spinal cord injury suffer from depression. If you or your loved one is struggling with the mental anguish of coping with spinal cord injury, you have the right to pursue compensation to pay for all of the overwhelming expenses stemming from your spinal cord injury including doctor’s visits, physical and occupational treatment, mental health care, medications, and other expenses.
Possible Compensation for Your Spinal Cord Injury Case
Income loss in the wake of a catastrophic injury can be frightening. Worry over how to support yourself and your family and pay your medical expenses can adversely affect the quality of your life. When you retain the lawyers at Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP, we will demand that the at fault parties compensate you for all of your injuries and economic damages so that you can concentrate on your recovery.
If you or one of your loved ones suffered a spinal cord injury that damaged your or their brain function, our lawyers will make a legal claim against those that were responsible and we will seek full, fair and just compensation for each and every type of damage you or your loved one suffered.
In addition to any lost wages you suffered and may suffer in the future, you are also entitled to demand reimbursement for each and every medical cost that you have sustained. If medical evidence shows that you will require future medical care, you may be able to receive a recovery for a lifetime of medical expenses.
Besides claiming lost wages and medical expenses, you are also entitled to demand substantial compensation for your physical and emotional pain and suffering due to your injuries and the effect of those injuries on your ability to enjoy life. Given the catastrophic nature of spinal cord injuries, the value of pain and suffering damages often extend into the millions of dollars.
