Arizona construction accidents often result in catastrophic injuries or injuries that have long-term health effects. Spinal cord injuries are extremely common in construction accidents. A spinal cord injury in Phoenix tends to affect almost every aspect of a person’s life. It often causes permanent disability or loss of movement (paralysis) and sensation below the site of the injury. The most common causes of spinal cord injuries in the United States are falls, motor vehicle accidents, acts of violence, sports and recreation injuries, alcohol use and injuries triggered by other diseases or health conditions.
A spinal cord injury can turn your entire life upside down, just like any other catastrophic injury. If you have sustained a spinal cord injury on-the-job in a construction site, especially due to someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover compensation. Such restitution may cover expenses associated with medical treatment, surgery, medical exams, medication, lost wages, rehabilitation, physical therapy and even long-term care.
If you are a construction worker who has sustained catastrophic spinal cord injuries, then you may never be able to return to work. In such cases, you can also seek compensation for lost future earnings and loss of ability to make a living. You may also need emotional and psychological care after a spinal cord injury to combat feelings of fear, insecurity, anxiety and depression.
