What constitutes a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord, resulting in a loss of function or sensation below the site of the injury. These injuries can vary in severity, ranging from temporary numbness to permanent paralysis.

In the bustling metropolitan area of Dallas/Fort Worth, spinal cord injuries can occur in a variety of settings:

  • Car accident victims, including car crashes, motorcycle collisions, and truck accidents, run the highest risk of spinal cord injuries in the region.
  • Additionally, slips and falls, particularly in workplaces, construction sites, and public spaces, can result in serious spinal cord injuries.
  • Sports-related injuries, such as those sustained during football, soccer, or gymnastics, are also a concern.
  • Acts of violence, including assault and gunshot wounds, can also lead to devastating spinal cord injuries.

Regardless of the cause, spinal cord injuries can have a profound impact on the lives of victims and their families, often leading to significant medical expenses, long-term care needs, and drastically reduced quality of life. 

What evidence do you need to win a spinal cord injury case?

As with other personal injury claims, successfully pursuing a spinal cord injury case requires gathering strong evidence to support your claim. If, for example, you notice a severe back injury after a car accident, you’ll need to obtain the following evidence for a potential spinal injury case:

  • Medical records detailing the extent of your injuries and the treatment you have received
  • Witness statements from individuals who saw the accident occur
  • Accident reports filed with law enforcement agencies or workplace safety regulators
  • Expert testimony from medical professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, or vocational experts
  • Documentation of lost wages, medical expenses, and other financial losses resulting from the injury

At Sellers Law Firm, our skilled attorneys will work diligently to gather and analyze evidence to build a compelling case on your behalf. We understand the importance of thorough preparation and will advocate fiercely for your rights throughout the legal process.

Does a spinal cord injury qualify for disability?

In Texas, individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits if they meet the criteria established by the Social Security Administration (SSA). To qualify for disability benefits, you must demonstrate that your injury meets the SSA’s definition of a disability and prevents you from engaging in substantial gainful activity.

The SSA evaluates spinal cord injuries based on their severity and their impact on your ability to work and perform daily activities. Factors such as the level of paralysis, loss of sensation, and functional limitations will be considered when determining eligibility for disability benefits.

How much can you get from a spinal injury?

The compensation available to individuals who have suffered spinal cord injuries can vary widely depending on the circumstances of the case. Factors that may influence the amount of compensation awarded include:

  • The severity of the injury
  • The extent of medical treatment required
  • Long-term care needs, including rehabilitation and therapy
  • Lost wages and future earning potential
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress and loss of enjoyment of life

At Sellers Law Firm, we understand the financial strain that a spinal cord injury can place on individuals and their families. Our attorneys will fight tirelessly to secure maximum compensation for your injuries, and help ensure that you have the resources you need to rebuild your life.
