Other Spinal Cord Accidents
The Mayo Clinic has identified certain risk factors for spinal cord injuries, and those factors include: (a) being male (females account for only 20% of traumatic spinal cord injuries in the U.S.); (b) having a joint or bone disease such as arthritis or osteoporosis; (c) being between the ages of 16 and 30; and, (d) participating in risky behavior. While these are certainly risk factors, the truth is spinal cord accidents can happen anywhere: amusement parks, work, the swimming pool, football games, or simply being involved in a significant auto accident on your drive home. Regardless of the cause of the spinal cord injury, the result is the same: a devastating impact to you and your family’s physical, emotional and financial well-being.
At the Law Offices of John Day, our award-winning trial attorneys are passionate about helping spinal cord victims and their families. We understand the devastation these types of injuries wreak upon the victim and the entire family, and we want to ensure you get the compensatory damages and, if appropriate, punitive damages you deserve.

- Paying for medical bills
- Paying for future medical treatment
- Paying for medical devices such as lifts and other equipment
- Paying for in-home assistance with childcare, lawn care, cleaning, cooking, laundry, etc.
- Paying for renovations to your home for wheelchair lifts, bed lifts, widening of doorways to accommodate wheelchairs, lowering of counters to accommodate wheelchairs, renovations to shower facilities to make them accessible, etc.
- Loss of income due to an inability to work
Compensatory damages will also attempt to compensate you for your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life and loss of consortium damages.
