Traumatic Brain And Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
The brain and spinal cord are essential to every function that our bodies carry out, whether they are conscious or unconscious. Our spine carries the messages from our brain to every part of our bodies, executing commands and controlling everything from our movement, to our breathing, and our digestion. The brain gives messages and spinal cord acts as the body’s communicator, keeping everything connected and functioning.
When the spinal cord is damaged, the system of communication is disrupted, and the brain is not able to send messages to the body as it once had. Because the spinal cord is so essential and central to every part of our bodies, when it is damaged, the impacts can be very wide-ranging, and differ from person to person.
Experiencing a Spinal Cord Injury
Someone who suffers a traumatic brain or spinal cord injury might experience chronic pain, permanent disability, numbness or difficulty moving the body, total paralysis, or more. In some cases, a very small amount of recovery is possible, but for the overwhelming majority of spinal cord injury victims, the injuries suffered will be fairly permanent, and may impact them for the rest of their lives.
If you, or one of your loved ones has suffered a traumatic brain and spinal cord injury that was caused by another party, you are entitled to receive personal injury compensation for all that you have experienced. This includes compensation for your injuries, medical bills, damaged property, personal support, lost wages, and your pain and suffering. Though the law in California states that you are entitled to this compensation actually accessing your payment might be more difficult than you think.
Accessing Compensation for Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are among the most catastrophic injuries a person can suffer, and they can be caused in many different ways. Many of our clients at Braff Injury Attorneys have sustained spinal cord injuries as a result of car accidents, motorcycle accidents, product liability cases, slips and falls, pedestrian collisions, public transit accidents, and more. The nature of the accident that caused the injury will significantly impact your personal injury claim in Vacaville, Citrus Heights, Davis and Los Gatos.
It is absolutely essential that any person who has suffered traumatic brain and spinal cord injury retain professional personal injury representation for their claims. At Braff Injury Attorneys, we recommend that you begin to research and interview potential attorneys as soon as possible after your accident. Moving quickly will allow you the chance to choose the best representative, form a bond with them, and ensure that all necessary evidence will be easily available to your lawyer.
