If you were involved in an accident and suffered a spinal cord injury, you could be eligible for compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, future medical expenses, disability, physical therapy, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering.

When someone is negligent it means that they had a legal duty that they did not fulfill and this caused someone to get hurt.
