For many injuries, medical and treatment is all you need to recover and be as good as new. Unfortunately, this is not the case for spinal cord injuries. Damage to the spinal cord could result in severe pain, loss of motor functions, paralysis and other medical issues. As such, accident victims suffering a spinal cord injury should understand their rights and options when it comes to holding a responsible party liable for the current and ongoing damages the accident caused.
