Spinal Injury Resulting From an Accident in Las Vegas

Did You Suffer a Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)?

A spinal cord injury is a severe condition that often results in devastating and/or permanent conditions such as partial or full paralysis. This type of condition is hard enough to come to terms with on its own, but when your SCI was caused by the negligence or recklessness of someone else on the road, it can be even harder to endure.

An effective Las Vegas spinal cord injury lawyer can work to bring that individual to justice by fighting for his or her payment of proper restitution while you focus on the long journey of physical and emotional healing. We have collected millions of dollars for our injured clients and we would love to work with you.

Common Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

The spinal cord is an essential part of your central nervous system that serves as a major information pathway for your whole body. Thus, there are all kinds of injuries that can result from spinal cord damage or damage to the areas around it. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, these conditions can be temporary, permanent, or even life-threatening.

Some of these conditions are:

  • Spinal contusions
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Partially severed cord
  • Nearly completely severed cord
  • Brown-Séquard syndrome
  • Cauda equina syndrome
  • Conus medullaris syndrome
  • Anterior cord syndrome
  • Central cord syndrome
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia

Whether temporary or permanent, the cost of initial medical care and ongoing rehabilitation is high for all of these conditions. It can cost in the hundreds of thousands of dollars the first year and much more for each subsequent year. If your SCI is the result of someone else’s actions, you shouldn’t have to shoulder this financial burden and the stress of dealing with such a serious condition.

What are the various causes?

In some cases, as in certain congenital conditions involving spinal stenosis, it is certainly possible to sustain a spinal cord injury through a birth defect or other natural causes. However, most instances of spinal cord injury happen in accidents like these:

  • Motor vehicle accident
  • Accident at work
  • Acts of violence
  • Medical malpractice
  • Accidents due to property negligence
  • Sports or recreational accidents

Several of these incidents occur daily due to the negligent or reckless actions of another person. For instance, if the car accident was caused by a drunk driver, fault is easily placed on the other person or entity, making you eligible for compensation. Even if you are unsure of where fault lies, our team at Oronoz, Ericsson & Gaffney LLC can help determine if you still qualify for compensation under Nevada’s modified comparative fault system.
