About Spinal Cord Stimulators
Spinal cord stimulators consist of a generator connected to wires – that have electrical leads at the end – placed near the spinal canal; these wires allow electrical current to be sent from the generator to the spinal canal to effectively block pain. The procedure is a relatively quick one, but it must be precise. If the wire leads are not incorrectly installed, they can fail to work correctly or even injury the spinal cord.
Personal Injury Accidents Can Potentially Damage Spinal Cord Stimulators
Unfortunately, personal injury accidents can damage spinal cord stimulators. Any sort of incident, including car accidents, slip and falls, work accidents, and other incidents, can result in devastating injuries – which could affect the spinal cord stimulator device. The incidents that result in injuries that can also result in damage to the spinal cord stimulator device. Unfortunately, damage to a spinal cord stimulator can immediately lead to the return of chronic pain; in some cases, the pain could even be worse than before the procedure. If you suffered a personal injury accident and found that your spinal cord stimulator was damaged, you might have grounds to sue.
Can You Sue?
Whether you were involved in a fall, car accident, accident at work, or slip and fall, for instance, you might have grounds to sue for the harm that you suffered – including any damage to your spinal cord stimulator. On what grounds could you sue? The answer to this question will depend strictly on the type of incident that occurred.
For instance, if you were involved in a fall (including slip and falls as well as trip and falls), you could sue based on the concept of premise liability. Based on premise liability, specifically, property owners owe their guests a duty of care – a duty to keep the premises safe and free of dangerous conditions. Therefore, victims could sue property owners.
If you were involved in a car accident, you could sue based on the concept of negligence. That is, a driver (or other entity) owes you a duty of care; the duty of care includes a duty to drive safely and respect traffic rules and signs, for instance (some entities have the duty to keep road conditions safe, for example). Because of this, victims could sue drivers and other entities for the harm or damages resulting from car accident.
What if you were involved in an accident at work? If you were involved in a workplace accident, you could also sue based on negligence. That is, employers owe their employees a duty of care – to ensure that the entire workplace is safe for employees. Therefore, victims of workplace incidents could sue their employers for the harm suffered.

File Your Claim Quickly
If you are interested in suing and fighting for your right to recover compensation after you or a member of your family, you must act quickly – your claim is subject to a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations determines the total length of time that claimants have to file their claims. If claimants do not file their claims within the time allowed by the statute of limitations, they could lose their right to sue. How long do you have to pursue your claim? In most cases, personal injury claims are subject to a two-year statute of limitations; this means that claimants only have two years to file their claims. In some cases, however, it is possible for exceptions to apply – which could pause the total length of time that applies to your claim. To ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the deadline that applies to your claim, you should discuss your claim with the experts at our firm immediately.
