Philadelphia Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

According to the Mayo Clinic, a spinal cord injury can lead to a wide range of changes to bodily functions, depending on the type and severity of injury. Rehabilitation provided for a spinal cord injury is intended to help injury victims regain lost function and develop adaptations to resume an independent, quality life. Examples of the physical complications that can result from a spinal cord injury include:

  • Changes to bladder and bowel control, which can increase the risk of infection and GI conditions
  • Increased risk of pressure ulcers caused by lack of pain sensation and difficulty moving or changing positions to avoid sores developing
  • Cardiovascular issues, including low blood pressure, swelling in the limbs, life-threatening rises in blood pressure, and development of blood clots
  • Respiratory issues, including difficulty breathing and increased risk of lung infections due to problems with coughing and clearing the lungs
  • Loss of bone density and increased risk of fractures
  • Loss of muscle tone and strength, or onset of spasticity
  • Increased risk of obesity and resulting cardiovascular disease or diabetes due to a more sedentary lifestyle

Frequently Asked Questions about Spinal Cord Injuries

How long do I have to file a spinal cord injury lawsuit?

If you sustained a spinal cord injury in an accident or an incident caused by someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you normally have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for causing your spinal cord injury. If you wait too long to file suit, you risk filing an untimely claim that may end up being permanently dismissed out of court and losing your rights to recover the compensation you need for your treatment and care.

Will my claim be affected if I was partially responsible for the accident that led to my spinal cord injury?

If you are deemed to have been partially at fault for the accident or incident that resulted in your spinal cord injury, you can still pursue a claim for compensation against the other at-fault party or parties so long as you were equally or less at fault than they were. But the total compensation that you would be entitled to for all your losses and expenses may be reduced in proportion to your share of fault for your injury. Therefore, if you are found 25 percent responsible for causing your injury, you can only recover 75 percent of your losses.
