Tulsa Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Few injuries are as life-altering as a spinal cord injury. Damage to the bundle of nerves that carries messages to the body from the brain results in a dramatic change in mobility and quality of life. If you or your loved one suffered a spinal cord injury in Tulsa or the surrounding region in Oklahoma, and someone else’s actions caused the injury, you deserve the best legal representation to recover damages.

In a personal injury claim, the word “damages” refers to all consequences of an injury suffered by the injury victim. For victims of spinal cord injuries, these consequences are extensive. Financial compensation cannot erase the injury but opens doors to the best possible medical care and gives victims a sense of justice for their loss.

The outcome of a spinal cord injury depends on the level of the spine where the injury occurs and the severity of the damage. Complete spinal cord injuries halt all sensation and movement below the injury level. Incomplete spinal cord injuries cause a partial loss of sensation and movement with impacts depending on the severity of the damage and the individual’s access to physical therapy and other treatments.

The medical community divides the spine into four spinal cord sections. From higher to lower, these include the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and sacral spine. The higher the injury on the spine, the more severe the level of immobility. When an injury occurs at the cervical level (the neck) it causes paralysis of the body below the neck (quadriplegia or tetraplegia). If the injury occurs at the thoracic or lumbar levels, paralysis occurs in the lower body and lower limbs (paraplegia). Injury to the sacral spinal cord results in partial paralysis of the lower limbs.

All spinal cord injuries have life-altering implications for the victim, including an inability to work in the previous capacity, difficulty accomplishing daily tasks, and a higher risk of related adverse health conditions. Those with the greatest degree of paralysis require full-time care.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries in Oklahoma

Despite the protection of a bony column of vertebrae, the spinal cord is vulnerable to damage from a severe blow, powerful jolt, or sudden powerful shake or twist of the torso or neck. Common causes of spinal cord injuries in Oklahoma spinal cord injury cases include the following:

If the injury occurred as a direct result of another party’s negligence or wrongful actions, a spinal cord injury lawyer in Tulsa from Dan Davis Law is ready to document the evidence of liability and carefully calculate your damages for the maximum available compensation.

Liability in Spinal Cord Injury Claims in Tulsa

The courts base personal injury law on the premise that we all owe a general duty of care to prevent causing injury to others. Breaching this duty of care is actionable if it causes harm to another. Proving liability for a spinal cord injury in Oklahoma requires demonstrating the following:

  • That the at-fault party owed a duty of care to the injury victim and others to take reasonable measures to prevent injury, such as a driver’s duty to follow traffic laws
  • They breached their duty through a negligent, reckless, or wrongful act
  • Their breach of duty directly caused the injury
  • The injury victim suffered economic and non-economic damages from the injury

Compensation in spinal cord injury claims typically comes from the appropriate insurance company or through a personal lawsuit against the party at fault. In some cases, multiple entities may be liable for damages, resulting in a larger total settlement amount.

What Compensation Is Available in a Tulsa Spinal Cord Injury Case?

Spinal cord injuries cause serious financial damages to victims as well as great physical and emotional harm. Common compensation for spinal cord injuries in Tulsa includes any or all of the following:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Income loss
  • Lowered future earning capacity due to disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life compensation
  • Loss of consortium (the ability to enjoy a full physical and emotional relationship with a loved one)
  • Emotional anguish, PTSD, anxiety, and/or depression

When a life-altering injury changes everything in a moment, it’s especially distressing to learn that the injury was avoidable if only someone else had taken reasonable care. Financial compensation for damages cannot cure a spinal cord injury, but it gives the injury victim the best means of reaching their maximum medical improvement and relieves financial hardship. It also helps hold the at-fault party accountable for their negligence or wrongdoing.
