Spinal cord injuries can be the unfortunate result of a serious motor vehicle collision and it leads to a dramatic change to your livelihood. A spinal injury lawyer can guide you through the necessary steps to recovery and let you focus on the things that matter.
Your spinal cord allows you to control your limbs and how you are affected is dependent on where the spinal cord injury is and the injury’s severity. Spinal cord injuries are classified as either incomplete or complete. An incomplete injury has varying degrees which allows you to have some feeling and you are able to move below the affected area. A complete injury is when you have almost no feeling or ability to control your movement below the injury. Also, spinal cord injuries are labelled based on the location of the paralysis: tetraplegia or quadriplegia refers to when your arms, hands, legs, torso and pelvic area are affected and paraplegia refers to when your legs, torso and pelvic area are affected. Anyone who has experienced head or neck trauma is evaluated for a spinal cord injury. This is a difficult time for many family members and a spinal injury lawyer can be a great help.
