Neck, Brain & Spinal Cord Injury
Certain injuries to the neck, brain and spinal cord have the potential to result in long-lasting symptoms, permanent disability or even death. Common causes of spinal cord injuries include car accidents, medical malpractice, defective products and workplace accidents.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported over 64,000 TBI-related deaths in the United States in 2020. Brain injuries manifest in a variety of ways including but not limited to loss of consciousness or memory, confusion or disorientation, visual disturbances, epilepsy, sleep disorders, speech and language problems, headaches, vomiting, fatigue or dizziness, depression, seizures, nausea, mood swings or mood changes, poor attention or concentration, and problems with executive function.
There are approximately 18,000 new spinal cord injuries each year in the United States according to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine located in Miami, Florida. The Spinal cord is responsible for transmitting communication between the brain and the rest of the body. Trauma or injury to the spinal cord could result in loss of communication between the brain and parts of the body and is, therefore often accompanied by mobility or sensory loss.
These types of injuries will usually result in the need for long-term medical treatment. This is why you want to speak with an attorney who can help you get the compensation necessary to ensure peace of mind for your future.
