Four Different Spinal Injury Regions
The spine is separated into four distinct regions: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral. The cervical spine is at the top, ranging from the top of the shoulders to the base of the skull. The sacral spine is at the bottom, ranging from the hips to the tailbone.
The severity of a spinal cord injury will largely depend on what part of the spine was injured. The higher an injury is located on the spine, the more body parts can be affected by paralysis or other complications. For this reason, cervical spine injuries are usually the worst, and sacral spine injuries are the least severe. Although, even damage to the sacral spine can result in paraplegia or paralysis of both legs.
Is Paralysis Curable?
Most cases of paralysis are incurable, so the difficulties they cause are permanent. Advancements in medical sciences have allowed some cases of paralysis to be cured in recent years that once would have been deemed impossible to treat. However, the treatments and equipment needed in those cases can be incredibly expensive, which makes it even more important to file a claim that you know will pursue the full compensation you deserve.
If your paralysis is deemed incurable or you are never expected to return to full mobility after reaching your maximum medical improvement, then that consequence of your spinal cord injury needs to be factored into your case as a heightened value. Non-economic damage reflects your pain, suffering, and hardships, so it would be fair to demand a larger non-economic damage value if your paralysis is permanent than if it was temporary or partially treatable. While no amount of money can undo the pain caused by a paralyzing injury, it can help you live more comfortably and possibly find a sense of closure.
