In addition to paraplegia and quadriplegia (in which paralysis strikes either the lower half of the body or the whole body), a full spectrum of other long-term effects can result from a serious spinal cord injury caused by a truck accident. Statistics indicate that every year, over 10,000 Americans suffer a spinal cord injury, and the leading cause is a truck or car accident.
An attorney in Atlanta can help you and your family if you have suffered a spinal cord injury after a serious truck accident, but the window of time for you to take action is limited, so reach out to a lawyer as soon as you can.
Some of the potential long-term effects of a spinal cord injury are:
- Inability to control bowel or bladder functions;
- sudden spasms;
- weakness or numbness in limbs; and
- persistent pain.
You and your family can seek financial reparations from the driver and the truck company responsible for the serious truck accident that caused your injuries, including damages for:
- pain and suffering;
- emotional anguish; and
- loss of quality of life.
