Spinal injuries are often permanent: Get the help you need

When you were heading to your university, you were surprised by how congested the roads were, but you were moving safely in your lane. Suddenly, a vehicle from your left began to merge into you. With nowhere to go, all you could do was brace for the inevitable crash to come.

The next thing you knew, you were waking up in an ambulance. You were strapped down and unable to move. They told you to stay calm but with an inability to feel your legs, you knew something horrible had happened.

Spinal injuries are serious and often permanent

As you may know, spinal cord injuries are often permanent. Though there is some chance of recovery and the ability to reduce further damage to the spinal cord from swelling, particularly with quick treatment, any damage that has already been done is unlikely to heal. The spinal cord is an important, yet fragile, part of the body. Once damaged, it is nearly impossible to repair.

If all sensation below a certain point occurs, you have what is known as a complete spinal injury. Complete spinal injuries result in a complete loss of movement and sensation below the point of injury. Paralysis of this type may be known as paraplegia if it involves your legs, trunk or pelvic organs, whereas it's known as tetraplegia if it affects your upper and lower body.

If you suffer from a spinal cord injury, the financial costs can be high as well. Medical care, in home care, changes to your property to make it handicap accessible and other expenses add up. Your attorney will help you fight for the compensation you need to make those changes and to get the care you need now and in the future.
