A spinal cord injury is one of the most difficult car accident injuries for doctors to treat. It can also be one of the most costly injuries to treat and try to recover from. Indeed, California residents who suffer a spinal cord injury generally have a long road to recovery ahead of them and it is likely that they will never recover fully.
Due to the high cost, pain and suffering, disabilities and other harsh consequences associated with a spinal cord injury, those who suffer such an injury due to another party's negligence may want to seek claims for financial damages in civil court. In some cases, such a claim could be the only chance that a victim has for getting the money to pay for his or her medical care and recover.
