Contrary to popular opinion, breaking one’s back or neck does not immediately guarantee a spinal cord injury. There could simply be damage to the bone of the surrounding vertebrae, whereas a spinal cord injury would result in a loss of mobility or feeling. That’s also what sets it apart from other injuries like ruptured disks, pinched nerves, or spinal stenosis.
Almost all causes of spinal injury stem from either trauma (car accident, gunshot, a fall, etc) or disease (polio, spina bifida, etc) and don’t even need to sever the spine; just damaging it is often enough to result in a loss of function. Recovering from such an injury is never easy–surgery, rehabilitation, ongoing medical care, and sophisticated medical devices may all be needed. And that means that even with medical insurance, very few people can afford complete treatment on their own. That’s why you can’t leave it up to chance; James Clayton Hall, PLC will ensure you get all of what you are owed.
