Any spinal cord injury can have devastating and life-altering consequences.

What Types of Compensation Are Available for Spinal Cord Injury Victims in Indiana?

If you suffered a spinal cord injury due to negligence, recklessness, or an intentional act, you likely have a personal injury case against the responsible party. If you sustained a spinal cord injury in a car accident caused by another motorist’s negligence, for example, you have the right to sue the negligent driver. It is important to understand that you have limited time to start the legal process. 

In Indiana, you generally have two years from the date of the injury-causing accident to bring your personal injury claim. If you miss this deadline, you will probably be unable to recover any compensation, no matter the strength of your case, so it is important to explore your legal options as early as possible.

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can result from many types of accidents, many of which are attributed to the negligence or misconduct of others. At Alvarez Law Offices, we have experience in handling cases across all major categories. We understand the distinct factors associated with each type of accident, including avenues for recovering compensation, ensuring that we tailor our approach accordingly to secure the optimal outcome for our clients.

Our Crown Point spinal cord injury attorneys are prepared to represent you if you were harmed because of:

  • An Automobile Accident. Car accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents, and pedestrian accidents are all capable of causing spinal cord injuries. The impact of a vehicle in a collision can cause severe trauma to the spine, resulting in life-altering injuries.
  • A Fall. Especially common among older adults, falls can result in serious spinal cord injuries. Whether it's tripping down a flight of stairs, slipping on a wet floor, or a fall from height at a construction site, any fall can potentially damage the spinal cord. Under Indiana’s premises liability laws, if the fall was caused by an unsafe hazard that a property owner negligently failed to address, the property owner may be liable for any resulting injuries, including spinal cord injuries.
  • Medical Malpractice. Spinal cord injuries can result from medical malpractice, surgical errors, or complications during medical procedures. These might include errors during spine surgery, improperly administered epidural injections, or chiropractic manipulation gone wrong.
  • A Workplace Accident. Workers may suffer spinal cord injuries from incidents like falls from great heights, being struck by falling objects, vehicle-related accidents, or mishaps involving machinery or equipment. For instance, a construction worker might fall from scaffolding, or a warehouse worker might get caught in conveyor belt machinery. Even jobs traditionally considered less risky, like office work, are not necessarily immune – a simple slip and fall on a slick office floor or tripping over an open drawer can cause serious spinal injuries.

The Physical, Emotional, and Financial Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries

The physical consequences of spinal cord injuries can be severe and far-reaching. Depending on the specific location and severity of the injury, individuals may experience permanent changes to their bodily functions. In some cases, the injury might result in partial or complete paralysis, quadriplegia, or paraplegia. This could mean loss of movement or sensation in limbs, difficulty in breathing without assistance, or challenges with bladder and bowel control. Moreover, people with spinal cord injuries are at increased risk for secondary health problems, including pressure sores, urinary tract infections, and lung infections. Such drastic physical changes often necessitate long-term medical care, including surgeries, medications, physical therapy, and assistive devices.

In addition to physical challenges, spinal cord injuries also have profound emotional consequences. Dealing with such a life-altering event can be emotionally taxing and may lead to feelings of anger, grief, frustration, or depression. The drastic shift from independence to dependence can affect self-esteem, causing feelings of alienation or despair. It is not uncommon for individuals to grapple with psychological distress, necessitating mental health support and counseling. The person's social life might be affected as well, causing strains in relationships and hampering social interaction.

The financial implications of spinal cord injuries should also not be understated. The costs associated with medical care, rehabilitation, and adaptive equipment can be overwhelming. In addition to ongoing medical expenses, the individual will also incur indirect costs, such as lost wages, reduced earning capacity, and non-medical requirements like accessible housing and transportation. The financial burden can create significant stress, adding to the emotional trauma suffered by the individual and their families.

You should not have to worry about you will cover the financial consequences that inevitably come with a spinal cord injury. You also deserve compensation for the physical and emotional pain you have sustained and will continue to deal with.
