Hiring the right lawyer to help you through the frustrating process means you can get the compensation you deserve.
Depending on what sort of Injury Related Lawsuit you are dealing with, many different aspects will come about in the case. The first thing to analyze is what sort of injury occurred and how. When specifically dealing with a spinal cord injury, it happens when the spinal cord is bruised, torn wholly or partially, and it could commonly lead to either death or permanent disability. The spinal cord is a very important part of your body composed of a bundle of nerves that carries messages from the brain to the rest of your body. Damaging this would be catastrophic.
The most common examples of what could cause a spinal cord injury include severe falls, automobile, motorcycle, or pedestrian accidents, birth injuries, infections, sports injuries, trampoline accidents, or diving accidents. There are also other risk factors such as a person’s age, as well.
What is most tragic is the result of a catastrophic spinal injury that results in very serious and painful symptoms such as quadriplegia, which is a loss of function in the arms and legs, and paraplegia, which is the loss of function in the lower half of the body. In other words, spinal cord injuries are classified into two categories: complete and incomplete.
Quadriplegia and Paraplegia are the results of what is considered a complete injury because both sides of the body are equally affected and there is no sensation and no voluntary movement.
An incomplete injury means that there is some functioning below the primary level of the injury, so this could include symptoms such as muscle weakness, loss of muscle movement in the chest, arms, and legs, loss of bowel or bladder function, loss of feeling in the chest, arms, or legs, band breathing issues.
Any of these symptoms, and especially if the result is the loss of life of a loved one, is not ideal.
