When you have suffered a back, neck or spinal cord injury in a Tennessee car accident or other type of accident caused by another person, you may be facing a lifetime of debilitation and disability as a result. Catastrophic spinal cord injuries can result if your spine was crushed, bruised, twisted, severed or pinched, possibly leaving you with paraplegia or quadriplegia. You may be unable to continue working, personal assistance to complete your daily tasks may be required, and you may require ongoing rehabilitative treatments to prevent your muscles from atrophy.
You may have also incurred other types of back and neck injuries, including broken vertebrae, herniated, ruptured or slipped discs, whiplash, ongoing numbness and tingling or permanent nerve damage. Whether your injury has left you needing total care or ongoing pain management for such conditions as neuropathy or other associated problems, you may be unable to work and may have significant and ongoing medical and care expenses. Your quality of life may have been permanently altered by such a disastrous accident.
In the event you were injured in such a serious manner, you may want to file a personal injury lawsuit against the person whose negligence caused your accident and resulting injuries. Through such a lawsuit, the person may be held to be responsible to you for your expenses and losses.
