About Spinal Cord Injury Cases

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), approximately 17,700 new spinal cord injuries occur each year. Victims are likely to require costly medical treatment and extensive physical therapy. While available treatments improve physical ability, in some cases, those with spinal cord injuries may never regain full function. When such a devastating, life-altering event occurs because of the negligence of another, it is only just that responsibility be taken for the injury and the effects it will have on that person’s life.

About Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord damage is usually caused by a blow or trauma to the spinal column and the nerves connected to it. If the spinal cord is damaged in the upper back or neck, the victim is likely to develop tetraplegia (paralysis of both arms and legs, also known as quadriplegia). When lower regions of the spine are injured, paraplegia (paralysis of the lower body) can result. Both paraplegia and quadriplegia are the result of what is termed a “complete” spinal cord injury. “Incomplete” injuries don’t affect the entire width of the spinal cord and therefore allow for some sensations, mobility, and bodily functions below the damage.
