Degrees of Spinal Cord Damage
Spinal cord injuries are one of the few types of injuries that continue to baffle medical science. Whether partial or complete, spinal injuries can affect every part of your body, including your limbs and brain, and even result in paralysis. A full resolution to a severe spinal cord injury has not yet been discovered, although progress is being made. Even when the spinal cord is severely bruised instead of catastrophically damaged, the injured party may recover over time but could still suffer ongoing pains and difficulties such as numbness and lack of ability to correctly control their extremities. In cases in which the injury was so devastating that the spinal cord was severed, the individual will suffer from paralysis from the point at which the cord was permanently damaged. As a spine injury victim, the challenges you will face throughout the remainder of your life are very difficult, and our firm is prepared to deliver knowledgeable and experienced legal advice.
