Baton Rouge Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

The level of damage a spinal cord injury can cause varies depending on the accident, but in every case this type of injury is serious. The spinal cord is a vital part of how the human body functions. Injuries to it are painful, debilitating, and expensive to treat. Costs of health treatment and time lost at work can create substantial hardships for you and your family.

A dedicated catastrophic injury attorney can help you fight for any compensation you might be entitled to. You deserve to have a Baton Rouge spinal cord injury lawyer on your side to seek financial recovery for the pain and suffering you have already endured.

The Severity of a Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal injuries can occur in many ways and bring different levels of severity. In determining the level of your harm, your Baton Rouge attorney might inquire as to whether the spinal cord injury is an incomplete or complete injury. A complete injury means the person has lost all sensation below the area of the injury. Alternatively, if the person can feel anything below that area and can move, the injury would be considered incomplete.

In addition to the severe pain the injuries initially cause, the damage is often permanent. However, due to the substantial harm individuals suffer from both temporary and permanent injuries, the cases are likely to carry high amounts of monetary compensation.

Common Signs and Symptoms of an Injury to the Spinal Cord

After an accident, you should immediately seek medical attention and document all symptoms for later use. Common spinal cord injury symptoms may include:

  • Complete loss of feeling in areas of the body
  • Weakness, numbness, or tingling
  • Limitations to mobility
  • Headache or a feeling of “pins and needles”
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Paralysis, localized or general

If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms following a spinal cord injury accident, a lawyer in Baton Rouge can advise you on your options in filing an injury claim for potential compensation.

Time Limitations on Filing a Claim in Baton Rouge

Louisiana Civil Code § 3492 requires personal injury cases to be filed within one year of the date of the accident. This short time frame must be followed. If it’s not, you are forever barred from financial recovery due to your failure to file in time. Because cases can take time to investigate, analyze, and file, it’s essential to approach a licensed attorney in the area well before this deadline approaches to avoid time limitation concerns.
