Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

The spinal cord is a column of nerve tissue that extends from the base of the brain down the back. It plays a vital role in transmitting signals between the brain and the rest of the body. It allows us to move, feel sensations, and control bodily functions.

Spinal cord injuries can be classified into different types, depending on the location and severity of the damage. The two primary categories are “complete” and “incomplete” spinal cord injuries. A complete spinal cord injury refers to a total loss of function and sensation below the level of the injury, while an incomplete injury means that some degree of function and/or sensation remains.

The effects of spinal cord injuries vary, depending on the location and extent of the damage. Injuries higher up in the spinal cord, such as in the neck area, often result in more severe consequences, such as paralysis of both the arms and legs (quadriplegia). Injuries lower down in the spinal cord may lead to paralysis of the legs (paraplegia).

The Impact of a Spinal Cord Injury on Your Life

A spinal cord injury can significantly affect every aspect of your life. From physical challenges to emotional and financial burdens, navigating life with this type of injury can be incredibly difficult.

The Physical Impact

Depending on the severity of the injury, individuals may experience partial or complete paralysis, loss of sensation, or impaired motor function. These physical limitations can greatly affect a person’s independence, ability to work, and overall quality of life.

The Emotional Toll

The sudden change in abilities and lifestyle can lead to intense feelings of grief, anger, and frustration. It’s important to seek emotional support and counseling to help navigate through these challenging emotions following a disabling spinal cord injury.

The Financial Consequences

Medical expenses, including surgeries, hospital stays, and ongoing rehabilitation, can quickly add up. Spinal cord injury victims may require assistive devices, home modifications, and long-term in-home care, which can place a significant financial strain on both the individual and their families.

When someone suffers a spinal cord injury because of someone else’s actions, they have the right to demand full compensation from the at-fault party and their insurance company for all of these, from medical bills and lost wages to physical pain and emotional suffering. This is why it’s so important to speak to a personal injury lawyer to protect your future. If your settlement does not account for everything you’ve suffered, you aren’t being fully compensated.
