The spinal cord is responsible for helping electrical signals in the brain reach the various parts of the human body. Every signal that is sent from the brain must travel along the spine to be delivered and executed by the body. When injury to the spine is sustained, victims may become temporarily or permanently paralyzed — down from the location of the injury. For some, a serious enough injury to the spine can result in paraplegia or quadriplegia for life. Victims of spinal injuries deserve, and are entitled to, fair and full compensation for their injuries — as well as certain other damages such as lost wages and lost future earnings. Exactly what a victim might be entitled to will vary from case to case, which is why an Orange County spinal cord injury attorney should be consulted before moving forward with a case. The attorney will be able to advise the victim on whether or not their claim is valid and what kind of compensation they stand to receive.
