Complete and Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord damage is typically classified as complete or incomplete injuries. A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord is severed, which causes paralysis to the rest of the body below the injury. The spinal cord sends messages from the brain to the rest of the victim's body, and therefore, when the line is cut, there is no way for information to get through. When the spinal cord is torn or bruised, but not completely cut, the damage can range from loss of muscle functions, sensations, or coordination.
Overwhelming Damages in Texas
Both types of spinal cord injuries can cause lifelong disabilities, including loss of mobility, loss of bladder or bowel control, chronic pain, or difficulty breathing. If the spinal cord is damaged around the neck region of the spine, the victim may become paraplegic or paralyzed throughout all or most of the body.
The sudden loss of independence and former way of life can also have an overwhelming emotional and psychological toll on the victim and their loved ones. With proper treatments such as therapy and medication, the victim may be able to maintain mental and emotional health, which can be afforded through financial compensation.
Determining Who is Liable for Spine Damage
Damage to the spinal cord occurs most often from a sudden, traumatic impact that dislocates, fractures, or crushes the vertebrae. Vehicle collisions, falls, violence, sports injuries, or even diseases, can inflict irreversible injuries to the spinal cord. That is why it is so important to determine who is responsible and hold them accountable for causing such serious injury. An experienced lawyer will be able to gather evidence and build a strong case to obtain the fair and just compensation that you or your loved one deserves.
