Types of Spinal Cord Injury We Can Help With
Once the spinal cord is damaged, it cannot repair itself. Because it serves as the conduit for messages from the brain to the rest of the body, a damaged spinal cord interferes with multiple abilities and bodily functions.
Spinal cord injuries can take many different forms. Each type of injury comes with unique challenges and requires different care, which could include surgeries, therapy, medication, and more. In addition, your injuries may prohibit you from re-entering your previous form of employment.
These types of injuries include, but are not limited to the following:
- Spinal Fractures
- Herniated Disc Injuries
- Back and Neck Strains and Whiplash
- Cervical Spine Injury
- Lumbar Spine Injury
- Thoracic Spine Injury
- Vertebrae Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Nerve Root Injuries
- Sacrum Injuries
- Bulging Discs
Treatments and bills for medical care can quickly add up. Our team of Denver spinal cord injury lawyers can tenaciously fight for the recovery you need and deserve.
Paralysis, Quadriplegia, and Paraplegia Injuries
Damage to the spinal cord itself is one of the most serious injuries a person can suffer. Often, spinal cord injury causes death—and when it does not, it is overwhelmingly likely to result in permanent paralysis.
When the injury affects the full width of the spinal cord, a patient will suffer complete, permanent paralysis of the parts of the body below the damage. Some injuries do not affect the whole spinal cord, allowing some signals from the brain to travel down it; in these situations, a patient is more likely to suffer partial paralysis (paresis).
Most accident victims are unable to return to their previous job and may not be able to rejoin the workforce at all. Along with the extreme medical bills that tend to come with paralysis and its complications, you may find yourself unable to earn money or access employer-funded insurance.
This is why getting you maximum compensation matters. Spinal cord injuries can cost over a million dollars in the first year alone. The person who hurt you should be the one to shoulder these financial burdens, not you. Call our Denver spinal cord injury attorneys to learn how we can help.
Other Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries
Different areas of the spinal cord control certain parts of the body, and a severe injury to the spinal cord can limit the motor function of certain body parts. Additionally, these injuries often leave individuals with physical and mental impacts, as well as other health problems aside from just the physical pain they may feel.
Other possible effects of a spinal cord injury may include:
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Difficulty breathing
- The need for a pacemaker
- Low blood pressure
- Reduced body temperature control
- Chronic pain
- Inability to sweat below the point of the injury
