Car crashes, falls, and other serious accidents can cause serious spinal cord injuries that affect a victim for the rest of his or her life. An injury to the spine can cause partial or complete paralysis, and depending on the extent of nerve damage, a full recovery may be impossible. One may face hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions of dollars in medical care and ongoing expenses.
You can seek justice and fair compensation after a serious injury with an Albuquerque spinal cord injury attorney to protect your interests. You have the right to pursue financial compensation from another person or a company that has caused you harm, but you will face obstacles along the way.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
The spinal cord may be injured by a direct blow, a sudden impact, or an unnatural twisting motion. These can cause damage to the spinal cord itself or to the spine. Depending on the type and extent of damage, a victim may experience severe pain and limited mobility or paralysis. If the nerves are seriously damaged or severed, there is currently no way to repair such damage. It will be important for your Albuquerque spinal cord injury lawyer to determine what caused the injury and who is responsible, in order to pursue and recover financial compensation for medical care, ongoing treatment, physical therapy, lost earnings, and more.
