Helping Spine Injury Victims Fight for Fair Compensation

Spinal cord injuries are catastrophic injuries, often resulting in severe, lifelong consequences for victims and their loved ones. Sadly, many people sustain spinal cord injuries through no fault of their own but due to the negligent and wrongful conduct of others. When this is the case, victims and their families are entitled to financial compensation for their damages, including medical expenses, future care costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, lost quality of life, and more.

If you or someone you love suffered a spine injury, and you believe someone else is at fault, contact the team at Amanda Demanda Law Group. Our Miami spinal cord injury lawyers can help you bring legal action against the liable party and fight for the justice you deserve. We offer free consultations and provide all our legal services on a contingency fee basis.

Types of Spine Injuries

There are many different types of spinal cord injuries, but they are generally classified into the following two categories:

  • Complete Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): Complete SCIs involve complete loss of communication between the brain and the spinal cord below the point of injury. This leads to severe and permanent injuries, such as partial or total paralysis.
  • Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): Incomplete SCIs occur when some communication is retained between the brain and the body below the point of injury. Incomplete SCIs are generally considered less serious than complete SCIs, though the effects can still be significant.

While spinal cord injuries only involve damage to the actual spinal cord, an individual may suffer a wide variety of back and spine injuries.

Some of the most common spine and spinal cord injuries include:

  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia/tetraplegia
  • Triplegia
  • Brown-Sequard syndrome
  • Anterior cord syndrome
  • Central cord syndrome
  • Slipped, ruptured, or herniated discs

These and other spine injuries can lead to an array of serious, life-changing complications, such as paralysis, chronic pain, headaches, incontinence, sexual dysfunction, difficulty breathing, changes in mood or personality, loss of fertility, nerve damage, chronic muscle pain, and an increased risk of infections and bedsores.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the leading causes of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Car, motorcycle, truck, and other vehicle accidents
  • Falls, including slip and fall accidents and falls from heights
  • Violence, including assault and attempted suicide
  • Workplace accidents and injuries
  • Sports and recreation-related accidents and injuries

All too often, the fault for these incidents lies with others—fellow motorists who were distracted or drove recklessly, property owners who failed to warn about dangerous conditions, or the manufacturers of defective products that prioritized profits over public safety.

If you believe that someone else was responsible for the accident or event that led to your spinal cord injury, get in touch with the team at Amanda Demanda Law Group today. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your injury-related damages, and our Miami spinal cord injury attorneys can help.

Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Victims

As previously mentioned, spinal cord injuries frequently have a devastating, life-changing impact on victims and their families. Many will suffer serious complications that make it impossible to return to work, complete everyday tasks, or even care for themselves. The cost of treating these injuries and their resulting complications can be immense, adding significant financial strain at a time when victims and their families are already struggling.

At Amanda Demanda Law Group, we work tirelessly to help spinal cord injury victims and their loved ones secure the full, fair compensation they are owed. While every case is different, and the exact value of your claim will depend on various factors, there are certain damages most people can recover.

After a spinal cord injury, you may be entitled to compensation for the following damages:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Hospitalization
  • Ambulance/emergency transportation fees
  • Ongoing and future medical treatment
  • Prescription and over-the-counter medications
  • Medical devices and equipment
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Projected future medical expenses
  • Lost income, wages, and/or employment benefits
  • Loss of earning ability due to disability
  • Past, current, and future pain and suffering
  • Mental distress and anguish
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions
  • Diminished enjoyment/quality of life
  • In-home assistance and/or medical care costs
  • Home or vehicle modifications

If the defendant was grossly negligent or intentionally tried to cause injury or harm, you could also be entitled to punitive damages. These types of damages are meant to punish the defendant for such egregious conduct, rather than compensate you for specific losses. Punitive damages also help send a message that such conduct will not be tolerated.
