Spinal Cord Injury in Workplace Accidents
Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Serving Orange County
One of the worst types of injuries that a person can suffer in a workplace accident is a spinal cord injury. Since the spinal cord is the main highway for the brain to transmit signals to the rest of the body, any damage to this group of nerves can result in serious damage to a person’s motor skills and rob a person of their mobility. To make matters worse, medical bills and the inability to work after a spinal cord injury can put a person in a serious financial predicament. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in an on-the-job accident, an Orange County workers’ compensation attorney from Alvandi Law Group, P.C. can fight to help you secure your entitled monetary benefits to alleviate the financial burden of your injuries.
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries in the Workplace
A person can suffer a spinal cord injury at work under a variety of circumstances. In many cases, spinal cord damage results from accidents caused by another party’s negligence, such as a supervisor’s failure to implement certain safety protocols.
Mild spinal cord damage such as disk injuries can result in severe pain and loss of feeling in certain areas of the body, while severe damage can result in paraplegia or death.
- Spinal cord injuries can result from the following:
- Construction accidents
- Slip and falls
- Falling objects
- Vehicle accidents
- Repeatedly lifting heavy objects
