Spinal Cord Injuries
Portland Personal Injury Attorney Representation
Spinal cord injuries, both traumatic and nontraumatic, can lead to lasting

or another spine injury related condition, you may have legal recourse
if the injury was sustained through the negligent or wrongful acts of another.

Medical Costs Associated with Spine Injuries
In addition to the physical toll caused by spinal cord injuries, there
is also a substantial financial toll. Some of the major medical costs
associated with spine injuries include –
Diagnostic Test Expenses
To accurately diagnose a spine injury, doctors often use CT scans, X-rays,
and MRI technology, all of which can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
If you are hospitalized for any length of time to treat a spine injury,
this can lead to costly medical bills.
This is often a necessary treatment for spine injury patients. Surgery
can remove foreign objects in the spine, repair fractures, or reinforce
the spinal column.
An increasing number of patients are receiving experimental treatments
and rehabilitation. These types of treatments can promote nerve healing,
but they can be costly.
Ongoing Treatment & Assistance
After initial diagnosis and treatment, spine injury patients typically
receive ongoing medical treatment, rehabilitation, medication, and incur
the cost of wheelchairs and related devices.
Individuals who are wrongfully injured may be able to seek financial compensation
to cover the cost of these and other medical expenses.
