Spinal Cord Injuries

Were You Seriously Injured?

You may take too much time out of your daily life to consider your spinal cord. This bundle of nerves running from your skull down to your tailbone allows your brain to communicate with the rest of your body, but that communication can be disrupted by a serious injury.

Following any accident, it’s important to seek medical attention to assess the damages and determine if your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence.

Severity of Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can vary in severity based on where the injury occurred. There are two ways medical professionals classify spinal cord injuries; whether or not the injury is complete, where nearly all to all of the feeling (sensory) and motor function is lost below the point of injury, or whether it is incomplete, where some sensory and motor function remains below the point of injury; whether it is referred to as paraplegia, where pelvic organs, legs and parts of the trunk are affected, or tetraplegia, where pelvic organs, legs, trunk, arms, and hands are affected.

If the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you could have the opportunity to file a personal injury claim in order to receive the financial support you need.
