Spinal shock is a very painful injury to the spinal cord. This type of injury can occur in automobile accidents, recreational vehicle accidents, and at the workplace in slips and falls and other types of incidents. There are many types of accidents that can lead to spinal shock. When the accident is the result of someone’s negligence, it becomes even more devastating than before.
If you have been involved in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence that caused spinal shock, it is your right to secure the representation of a Southern Minnesota personal injury attorney and fight for the compensation that you deserve.
Helping You On The Road To Recovery
There are a number of symptoms that are associated with spinal shock and they are very serious. They include:
- Loss of motor skills
- Loss of sensory functions
- Inability to feel pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Inability to feel hot and cold
- Loss of bladder control
- Partial paralysis
These are not all of the symptoms that a person may experience from spinal shock, but these symptoms can be debilitating and interfere with quality of life. That is why it is important to pursue compensation when the injury is the result of someone’s negligence. Another reason why it is important to file a personal injury claim is because your own health insurance may not want to pay for injuries caused by another person’s negligence. They will most likely have you fill out a claim form asking who was at fault, which means they will suggest making a claim against the other party so they can pay for the damages. With the right attorney by your side, this can happen for you.
Thorough Personal Injury Representation
Filing a personal injury claim against the negligent party is recommended because of the fact that there is a need for money to pay for medical expenses, lost wages, and other costs that have been incurred because of the accident. Your own insurance company may refuse to pay for medical expenses if someone else is at fault. They will want the negligent party’s insurance to pay.
To better secure the chances of the negligent party having to pay through their insurance or another means, your Mankato personal injury attorney will thoroughly investigate your case so that evidence showing who is at fault and why can be presented when making your case. That way you can prove the damages that were done, who caused those damages, and exactly how much compensation is needed.
