Paralysis following a traumatic event is often immediately diagnosed at hospital. Moreover, EMS usually confirms a victim’s symptoms and prepares a survivor for transport in a trauma alert. Finally, after a victim arrives at emergency department or trauma center, testing begins to determine damage severity.
As your paralysis injury lawyer, I know this lifetime tragedy occurs to many times and affects too may families. Especially relevant, your burdens and challenges require daily help for life. I want to help you and your family have everything you need for a fulfilling life.
Paralysis Injury Lawyer Discusses Post-Trauma Events
Paralysis is often first detected in an Emergency Room or trauma center by reflexive touching. Accordingly, doctors and nurses touch a patient in different body areas to see if a conscious patient feels sensation. But, if no sensation exists, then doctors suspect and diagnose spinal cord damage.
As we all know, this is devastating for you and your family. In addition, your entire life flashes before you, as you attempt to wonder what this means for your future. As you paralysis injury lawyer, I know grief strikes long and hard.
Also, physician or nurses attempt sharper movements to see if a patient can voluntarily move fingers, toes, feet, legs, arms, or hands. However, if this effort yields no positive results, then a spinal CT scan occurs. Especially relevant, a CT scan identifies swelling around a spinal cord.
Swelling results from trauma. Moreover, as swelling occurs, this inflammation presses on a spinal cord. Consequently, paralysis results.
Paralysis Injury Lawyer Explains Spinal Cord Swelling and Effects
As your paralysis injury lawyer, I know every victim and every survivor faces some dark days ahead. Hopefully, light begins to enter as hope takes hold.
However, it is challenging to see light when a CT scan confirms swelling around a spinal cord. Because, there is not much doctors can do for you besides wait for swelling to diminish. Accordingly, when this inflammation subsides, only then do we know your future.
Doctors look at your level of injury, also known as a lesion, to determine exactly where damage exists. Moreover, we count nerves from top of the spine downward. These nerves are located in four different regions:
- Cervical (neck area)
- Thoracic (chest area)
- Lumbar (low back)
- Sacral (tailbone/buttocks)
As your paralysis injury lawyer knows, I hope you regain full use of your arms, legs, and bodily functions. However, I know whether you need assistance often depends on this level of injury. Because, spine damage at these four points directly determines specific muscles, organs and sensations. Consequently, they indicate your paralysis levels.
