Calaveras County, known officially as the ‘County of Calaveras’, is located in northern California, not far from the city of Sacramento. San Andreas, its county seat, and Angels Camp, the only incorporated city, help make up the County of Cavaleras – one of the original California counties. Its population is roughly 45,500.
Situated in the High Sierra region of California, the county is also located in Gold Country, which is known best for the California Gold Rush. Calaveras – which translates to “skulls” in Spanish – derives its name from the conquests of Spanish Captain Gabriel Moraga, who discovered Native American remains when exploring the area.
It is also remembered in literary circles as the setting for Mark Twain’s story, “The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County.” To commemorate the story, the county hosts a fair each year, along with a Jumping Frog Jubilee.
Though small, Calaveras County features a bustling transportation network, including mass transit and State Routes 4, 12, 26, and 49. Unfortunately, like many communities, this also means that residents may experience accidents, like auto accidents, which are a leading cause of personal injury.
Spinal Injury Claims in Calaveras County
Each year, half of all new spinal injuries are caused by auto accidents. However, there are also other leading causes. From rare acts of violence – like gunshot wounds – to slips, falls, sports injuries or illness, spinal cord injuries can happen to virtually anyone.
However, spinal injuries are not like other types of injuries. This severe personal injury has the potential to be life altering, if not catastrophic. Some common results from spinal injury may include:
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Anxiety disorders or phobias
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Intense pain and suffering
- Loss of bodily control or function
That also means that recovery can be a lifelong process. It is not uncommon for victims of spinal injury to lose their former quality of life, which includes the ability to work and provide for their families. If you or someone you know has endured a spinal injury due to an accident or another party’s negligence, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim.
How Do I File a Personal Injury Claim?
The first step in any personal injury situation is consulting with a doctor. This is particularly true in spinal cord injury. Though many personal injury cases are caused by some sort of negligence, only a qualified medical professional can assess your condition and provide a plan and time frame, if any, for recovery.
You should then seek the advice of a personal injury attorney, who can examine your spinal injury case and chart a course of action to recover compensation or other potential damages.
