Permanent Harm Caused by Spinal Cord Damage
A spinal cord injury is almost always considered catastrophic because it is rare for harm to the spinal cord to not cause a permanent disability. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that control most other body parts, organs, and bodily functions. The nerves regenerate incredibly slowly or not at all, depending on where the damage happened to the spine and the health of the victim
People living with a spinal cord injury might experience:
- Chronic back pain
- Reduced mobility
- Reduced bowel control
Quadriplegia & Paraplegia
Paralysis is usually the worst consequence of suffering a spinal cord injury. The location of the injury along the spine will influence the extent of the paralysis.
Two of the most common forms of paralysis are:
- Quadriplegia: When a spinal cord injury survivor cannot move any of their limbs, they have quadriplegia or tetraplegia. Such severe paralysis can happen if the cervical spine near or along the neck is damaged because paralysis more or less affects every body part lower than the injury.
- Paraplegia: The loss of use for both legs is called paraplegia. It can occur if the victim’s spine is injured at the lower back. Thanks to advances in modern medicine, some paraplegia cases can be cured or alleviated, but such treatments can be as expensive as they are extensive.
It is also possible to experience partial paralysis to a body part if the damage to the spinal cord and connecting nerves is incomplete. Partial paralysis can manifest as a numbing sensation in the affected body part and/or reduced functionality of that body part.
We Seek Maximum Compensation
It is not an exaggeration to say that the cost of a spinal cord injury can be extremely steep. Medical treatments alone can range well into the tens of thousands of dollars, even after healthcare insurance is used to the fullest. Not to mention all of the non-economic harm experienced by the victim, such as the complete loss of independence and the lessened enjoyment of life. Damage that isn’t easily recordable in dollar bills can and should be counted toward the value of your spinal cord injury claim.
Our attorneys can fight for every dollar owed to you for damages, such as:
- Past and future medical treatment costs
- Past and future lost wages and income
- Permanent disability
- Pain, suffering, and emotional trauma
