Experienced Attorneys For Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are among the most severe that can happen in a car crash or fall. It's critical to get medical treatment right away to increase the odds of recovery.

Complete injuries are those that leave the victim with no possible movement and sensation, while incomplete injuries may limit movement and sensation without removing it entirely. The most severe forms of spinal cord injuries can result in paraplegia, quadriplegia or other forms of paralysis.

Common Signs Of Spinal Cord Injuries

It's imperative to recognize the signs and symptoms of a spinal cord injury and get treatment as quickly as possible. Symptoms to watch out for include:

  • Loss of function and movement
  • Reduced or lost sensations, including issues feeling physical touch, heat and cold
  • Spasms and exaggerated reflexes
  • Issues with bowel control
  • Stinging pain due to nerve damage
  • Loss of sexual function or fertility
  • Respiratory trouble such as difficulty breathing and coughing
  • Loss of coordination
  • Extreme pain at the injury site
  • Weakness
  • Issues with skills such as walking and keeping your balance

These are just a few examples, but any could mean a trip to the emergency room is necessary after an accident. A spinal cord injury is very serious and could be life-altering, as full physical recovery is not always possible.
