Spine injury is among the most severe damages any person can experience. This damage often results from a traffic crash, construction accident, work accident, or similar traumatic event.
Spine Injury is Catastrophic
Spine injury is trauma which strikes the spinal cord, causing devastating damage. This is because the spinal cord is the central nerve in our body which links our brains to our organs and limbs. Moreover, our spinal cord, through information carried from our brains, controls our voluntary actions, such as walking. It also controls our involuntary actions, such as heartbeat, breathing, and blinking eyes.
Spine Injury Corresponds to Level of Damage
A spine injury location corresponds to limiting actions beneath the injury level. Our spinal cord is the main conveyor belt for information from the brain to the rest of the body. Accordingly, a spinal cord injury can have significant consequences.
For example, a spinal cord injury occurring at a higher spinal level has the most harmful consequences, because signals beneath that level are limited, interrupted, or destroyed. Spine injury at the neck level, for instance, often causes paralysis from the neck down. This type of spine damage affects arms, legs, as well as breathing and heart function.
Spinal cord injuries are diagnosed as complete or incomplete. An incomplete injury means the spinal cord has some use, whereas complete injury results in total paralysis below the level of injury.
Spine Injury is Devastating Harm
A catastrophic spine injury and paralysis diagnosis are colossal life changers. The road to recovery is very long and challenging both physically and mentally. The costs of the best medical care, new treatments, physical therapy, and rehabilitation easily reach into the millions of dollars over the injured person’s lifetime.
A spinal cord damage victim and family may be able to recover the money needed to pay for the best care. Doing so requires proving liability. You are not alone. Your lawyer helps you.
