Spinal Cord Injury in Tampa, FL? Call Our Experienced Attorneys

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is one of the most catastrophic injuries you can experience in an accident. It’s not uncommon to have severe pain, problems walking, paralysis, and other lifelong problems after a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries often require expensive treatment and may prevent you from working, creating financial hardship for you and your family.

 

Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries are common in the U.S. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) reports that nearly 18,000 Americans experience a spinal cord injury every year. Car crashes, falls, acts of violence, and sports accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries in Tampa

The National Institute of Health reports that over 90 percent of spinal cord injuries result from:

Auto accidents: Auto accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. Reckless or negligent driving, including speeding, driving under the influence, or distracted driving, can lead to severe injuries.

 

Falls: More than 28 percent of spinal cord injuries occur because of falls—including slip and falls. Falls are also the leading cause of spinal cord injuries for people over 65.

 

Violence: Violence—including incidents with guns and knives—make up 15 percent of spinal cord injuries.

 

Sports: The NIH estimates accidents in football, martial arts, hockey, and other high-impact sports cause 8 percent of spinal cord injuries. Children and teens are at a higher risk of suffering spinal cord injuries from sports.

  

Florida law states that you have the right to seek damages if someone else’s reckless or negligent actions caused your injury. Hiring a compassionate Tampa spinal cord injury lawyer can drastically increase your chances of receiving maximum compensation.
