When is a spinal cord injury a result of negligence under Missouri law?
Because Missouri is an at-fault state, when you suffer an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, the at-fault party is held liable for the expenses associated with any resulting injuries. Spinal cord injuries in particular are caused by a number of different accidental or negligent circumstances. Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injury include:
Motor vehicle accidents – Injuries to the spine are one of the many serious injuries caused by a car crash. Unfortunately, these injuries usually require frequent doctor visits over a long period of time, and you cannot depend on the insurance companies to provide adequate financial coverage for these serious injuries.
Medical malpractice and surgical error – During surgery, if blood pressure is allowed to drop too low or if sedatives are incorrectly administered, a spinal cord injury may result.
Trips and falls – Spinal cord injuries are one of the most common injuries that result from a fall. If you or a loved one experiences a slip or a fall due to someone else’s negligence, they may be liable for your medical expenses.
