Expenses to consider when suffering a spinal cord injury following a car accident include:
Spinal cord injuries most often occur in car accidents when the car is crushed or rolls over. These types of accidents cause the roof of the car to cave in, which eliminates space for those traveling in the car. This causes the people in the car to be trapped in positions that put extreme amounts of pressure on the spinal cord. Another type of accident that may result in a spinal cord injury is when victims are thrown from the car. These types of accidents often lead to spinal cord injuries.
Although most spinal cord injuries in traffic accidents are caused by negligent drivers, some are actually caused by defective car parts. All cars are suppose to be able to withstand the impact of being rolled without crushing. However, this is not always the case. In these cases the car manufacturer may be at least partially responsible for the spinal cord injury. If they had made a better quality vehicle, the injury may not have happened.
