The effects of a spinal cord injury may cause the victim to lose sensation in certain parts of the body, and may also cause motor, bowel and bladder difficulties. In severe cases of spinal injuries, the victim may become paralyzed from the waist down (paraplegia) or from the neck down (quadriplegia). In the case of paralysis, the victim may have to adjust all aspects of their life. Their personal and professional relationships may be changed, in addition to coping with the inability of performing typical daily activities and work duties.

Depending upon the severity of the spinal cord injury and the location on the spine which was affected, there may be various treatment options. Surgeries, physical therapy, medications, and assistive devices may all be necessary for a spinal cord injury victim. If your injury was the result of an accident caused by another person’s negligence you may be able to hold them liable and recover monetary compensation for your injuries and injury related expenses.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Your ability to move after a spinal cord injury depends on the place of the injury along your spinal cord and how serious the injury is.

Spinal cord injuries are typically classified as:

Complete – If you’ve lost all feeling in your limbs below the spinal cord injury and can’t move, your injury is called complete.

Incomplete – If you have some feeling in your limbs below the spinal cord injury or can make small movements, your injury is called incomplete. There are varying degrees of incomplete spinal cord injuries.

According to the Mayo Clinic, anyone who experiences trauma to their head or neck needs immediate medical attention because:

  • “A serious spinal injury isn’t always immediately obvious. If it isn’t recognized, a more severe injury may occur.
  • Numbness or paralysis may occur immediately or come on gradually as bleeding or swelling occurs in or around the spinal cord.
  • The time between injury and treatment can be critical in determining the extent and severity of complications and the possible extent of expected recovery.”
