NEW ORLEANS SPINAL CORD INJURY ATTORNEYSStanding Up For The Rights Of The Seriously Injured.

The spinal cord is a group of nerves found within the backbone that transmits messages between the brain and body. When a spinal cord injury occurs, damage to these nerves responsible for regulating bodily functions results in partial or complete loss of movement and sensation.

Along with a brain injury, a spinal cord injury is considered one of the most serious types of injuries an individual can sustain. While medical treatment and physical therapy are costly, there may not be a chance the victim can ever live a normal life again after a spinal cord injury.

    Symptoms of a spinal cord injury include paralysis, trauma, numbness, tingling, weakness, poor coordination, loss of bladder or bowel control, and pain and suffering. But, it’s important to note that symptoms do not always appear right away.

    Victims may not start to notice these symptoms until hours after the injury occurred. If left untreated, damage to the spinal cord could lead to tumors, blood clots, or abscesses.

    Along with a brain injury, a spinal cord injury is considered one of the most serious types of injuries an individual can sustain.

    Every spinal cord injury is unique, however, all injuries will fall under one of two categories: complete or incomplete injuries. A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord is fully severed or compressed. When this happens, the brain can no longer send signals to the parts of the body that are located below the injury site. Therefore, the victim will lose feeling and movement in these parts of the body.

    An incomplete spinal cord injury is one in which the spinal cord is only partially severed or compressed. Since the spinal cord is still partially intact, the brain can still communicate with the parts of the body below the site of the injury. However, the brain’s ability to communicate with these body parts will be affected. As a result, the victim may experience a partial loss of movement or sensation.

    All spinal cord injuries are serious. If you have been diagnosed with one of these injuries after an accident, Contact Us today to discuss your options.
