Brain or spinal cord damage: dealing with a catastrophic injury

A sudden accident can cause a Californian to suffer serious damage to the brain or spinal cord. When these body parts are injured, a speedy recovery is not likely. These are long-term injuries that can prevent a person from ever walking again. A victim could lose his or her memory or become unable to work again. The results are serious and may require legal action that may not replace what the victim has lost but will at least be a financial source to tap for medical treatment.

Spine and brain damage can occur in various ways. Car accidents are common causes, as well as bicycle and construction accidents. No matter how your injuries occurred, if they were caused by another party's negligence, you may want to recover compensation. Injuries to the brain and spine are very costly to treat. Medical treatments include medications, MRIs, CAT scans, lab work, X-rays, physical therapy and assistive devices. More than likely, you'll have to endure these treatments for the rest of your life. If you're still young, your medical bills may exceed millions of dollars. How would you afford to pay for them - especially if you are unable to work?

With a personal injury lawsuit, you can hold the responsible party accountable for his or her actions. He or she may be forced to pay you for the injuries you suffered. You may able to recover compensation for not only medical expenses, but lost wages and pain and suffering as well. While money can't buy health, it can help you receive the treatment you need to make life easier.

If you suffered a catastrophic injury due to someone else's negligence, it's important to preserve your legal rights. Damage to the brain or spinal cord does not heal easily. These types of injuries require rehabilitation and many years - perhaps even a lifetime - of medical treatment.
