Florida Auto Accidents Resulting in Back Injury and/or Paralysis

Research indicates that over half of all paralysis cases were the result of auto accidents or other motor vehicle accidents that involved a motorcycle, truck, or automobile.

A high percentage of auto accidents involving spinal cord injuries occur when a vehicle rolls over and a person in the car is trapped inside of the crushed motor vehicle. If the spinal cord is injured, in some cases this could result in paralysis. Paralysis leaves an accident victim with loss of control of a muscle or a group of muscles, which means the paralysis could affect a limb or a particular area of the body or the paralysis could produce a loss of feeling throughout the entire body.

Other cases may not involve paralysis, but may still involve some other type of back injury and anyone who has ever suffered even a relatively minor back strain or muscle pull knows how much pain can result. Some back injuries recur for the rest of your life and require lifelong maintenance and special care in activities, stretching and/or therapy.

Any type of back injury, whether resulting in paralysis or not, is life altering and also brings with it a high amount of medical expenses. If you have been injured in an accident due to the negligence of another person, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Some of the the things you may be able to collect compensation for include:

  • Past, present and future loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Past, present and future medical expenses
  • Cost of repair or replacement for property damage

Our team is experienced in working with clients in these types of situations, dedicated to fully researching the details of the case and always acting in the best interest of the client, while fully informing our clients of every step and your rights throughout the entire process.
