Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries in the workplace, resulting in spinal fracture, paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia and other catastrophic conditions. They happen in many kinds of situations:
- Falling from a scaffold
- Being hit by falling items
- Loading dock accidents
- Construction accidents
- Work-related car accidents or truck accidents
- Manufacturing accidents
- Heavy equipment accidents involving cranes, conveyors, balers, forklifts, tractors, etc.
Often, injured people don’t know how to quantify the extent of their injuries. They underestimate the cost of future rehab, physical therapy, hiring personal attendants and dealing with other accident-related costs. They then suffer from two causes — a disabling accident and an insufficient workers’ compensation award.
