Spinal Cord Injury Law
Among all the possible personal injuries that you might suffer, a spinal cord injury is one of the most serious and devastating ones. Personal injury law, as a rule, arranges these sorts of wounds as cataclysmic wounds or injuries in the state of California. If such injury is the result of another person's carelessness or negligence, or whether caused by a car accident, medical malpractice, due to defective products like safety belts or other types of products intended for accident prevention, the victim is entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit against the liable party for causing any type of spinal cord injuries.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries in California
Spinal wounds or injuries can be divided in paraplegia or tetraplegia, as well as complete or incomplete injury.
While Paraplegia is a type of spinal cord injury that brings paralysis of the legs and lower body, Tetraplegia, also known as quadriplegia, is paralysis that results in the partial or total loss of use of all four limbs and torso.
A complete spinal cord injury makes the nerves below the point of injury to lose total communication with the brain. With deficient or incomplete injury means that is not completely lost the ability of the spinal cord to convey messages to or from the brain.
Causes for Spinal Cord Injury Cases
A portion of the main sources or causes of spinal cord injuries commonly include:
- Engine vehicle crashes or auto accidents
- Slip and Fall
- Viciousness and discharges
- Sports and entertainment mishaps during playing
- Clinical or medical malpractice or missteps.
With a significant number of these causes resulting from a mistake or negligence by someone else, it is imperative to know all the legal rights that the law provides when it comes to this kind of case.
