CAUSES OF SPINAL
CORD INJURY ACCIDENTS

IN AN INJURY CLAIM...

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a medical provider, such as a doctor, radiologist, or facility, causes their patient’s injury due to negligence or omission. A spinal cord injury can result from numerous types of medical malpractice. A surgeon could damage the spinal cord by misusing a tool. A doctor might misdiagnose the injury during an initial appointment and recommend a treatment plan that causes additional injury or harm.

motor vehicle accident

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle collisions commonly lead to injuries to the spinal cord. A person’s body experiences extreme forces during a collision, and the sudden stopping motion can damage nerves, tissue, vertebrae, or even the brain. Even an accident occurring at low speeds can strain muscles and cause damage to the delicate parts of the spinal cord.

Nursing Home Abuse

Older adults can suffer debilitating and even life-threatening injuries from abuse or malpractice. A spinal cord injury could result from a caregiver punching, kicking, or knocking them to the ground. Neglect can also lead to injuries involving the spinal cord. For example, if a staff member ignores a patient’s call for help, the patient might attempt to walk to the bathroom themselves and take a serious fall.

Premises Liability

Property owners are supposed to maintain their properties in a safe manner. If dangerous conditions exist and the owner doesn’t address them, visitors could get hurt. Falling down the stairs and slipping on a recently mopped floor commonly cause falls that result in a spinal cord, or even traumatic brain injury.

Occupational Accidents

Occupational hazards can injure an employee. Whether a worker is on a construction site or in an office building, they can encounter dangers that lead to an injury. Spinal cord injuries aren’t only the result of traumatic accidents. They can also occur from unsecured falling objects or an unstable shelf toppling over onto a worker.

Defective Products

Typically, you assume the products you use are safe. You probably don’t worry that your dresser will fall on top of you, or the crockpot you just bought will explode. Unfortunately, manufacturers sometimes make errors that cause defects in their products. A defective product could malfunction, causing an accident that injures someone and damages their spinal cord.

Explosions

Many commercial trucks contain flammable and toxic substances that can catch fire and cause an explosion after an accident. Explosions can also occur if faulty wiring in a house or building sparks a fire. The blast can knock a person backward, injuring the spinal cord during the fall.

Boating Accidents

Boating, though enjoyable, can become dangerous if the operator or another person behaves recklessly. Collisions between vessels, slip/falls on the boat, and falling overboard can cause spinal cord injuries that require emergency medical care.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF i suffered a

Spinal Cord injury IN MYRTLE BEACH?

01

REPORT THE ACCIDENT 
There should be written documentation of the incident. If you were in a car crash, you should call 911 so law enforcement can investigate the accident scene and write a crash report. If your spinal cord injury resulted from the dangerous conditions on someone else’s property, you should notify the manager and complete an incident report.

02

SEEK IMMEDIATE MEDICAL CARE
Go to the hospital after you leave the accident scene. Although you might think your injury is minor, there could be hidden damage only a qualified doctor can locate. Spinal cord injuries can worsen over time if you don’t seek the treatment you need to heal. Your physician might order imaging tests to determine the full extent of the injury and recommend the appropriate treatment plan.

03

SEEK ONGOING TREATMENT
If your spinal cord injury requires ongoing treatment, it’s critical to follow your doctor’s orders and attend every appointment necessary for your recovery. You might need rehabilitation to regain mobility and prescription medications to manage your pain. Skipping appointments or allowing too much time to pass in between them gives the insurance company a valid reason to provide a low settlement offer because it seems like your injury isn’t that serious.

04

HIRE A ATTORNEY
It’s critical to seek legal representation following an accident. Spinal cord injury cases can be complex to handle alone. Without an experienced lawyer by your side, the insurance company could take advantage of you and deny your claim unfairly. Your lawyer can take on the responsibility for your case from start to finish to protect your rights and pursue the maximum compensation available.

05

MAINTAIN RECORDS
Maintain every record you receive during your ongoing case. Even though your attorney has the resources to obtain evidence on your behalf, you should keep a copy of all documents associated with your case, such as medical bills, surgical reports, and lost wages reports.

06
