Types Of Spinal Injuries

While people can sustain injuries to the spine during a slip-and-fall accident, it is more common for them to happen during a car crash or other situations involving high speed and force. Spinal cord injuries fall into two main categories:

  • Incomplete spinal cord injuries
    These are instances in which the spinal cord is not completely severed, but still damaged. While some nerve signals can still get through, you will still have moderate to severe disability, depending on how extensive the damage is and where it occurs.
  • Complete spinal cord injuries
    A complete injury is when the spinal cord is completely severed. In these cases, people will have no sensation or mobility below the point of injury.

Can Spinal Cord Injuries Be Cured?

For many conditions, doctors can perform wonders. Surgeons can remove tumors; obstetricians can save babies who are just a few weeks old. Unfortunately, spinal injuries are still beyond the reach of modern medicine: While there are therapies, there is currently no known cure for damage to the spinal cord.

Pursuing The Most Effective Recovery

It is important to note that you may be able to regain some function through extensive therapy and treatment, depending on the exact nature of your injury. However, the damage to your spinal cord will remain. While researchers are always pursuing new treatments to regenerate spinal tissue, none of them is currently known to be effective.

Because of the permanent nature of spinal injuries, our attorneys will aggressively advocate for you when dealing with insurance companies. Even in cases of obvious fault, they will try to give you as little as possible. A lawyer can help balance the scales and pursue the compensation that you truly deserve and need.
