What is a spinal cord injury?
The Mayo Clinic defines a spinal cord injury as “damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal [which] often causes permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury.” They generally fall into two categories: an incomplete SCI means that the spinal cord can still receive or send messages to the brain. People with an incomplete spinal cord injury may regain some feeling or movement over time. A complete SCI is one where the spine and the brain no longer communicate, leading to a total loss of motor function and feeling. You do not need to have severed your spinal cord to sustain a complete spinal cord injury; crushing or bruising part of it can also lead to a total loss of function.
Our firm has been helping seriously injured people get justice in Arizona and courtrooms across the country since 1991. We encourage you to take advantage of the extensive experience our Phoenix spinal cord injury attorneys have with serious injuries, including:
- Paraplegia. Paraplegia describes the loss of movement and sensation within the lower parts of the body. These injuries may extend into the trunk of your body, but they do not affect the upper extremities.
- Tetraplegia/quadriplegia. This spinal cord injury extends to the upper sections of the spinal cord, affecting all four limbs. This type of paralysis can be so severe that it may limit your ability to breathe without medical assistance.
- Paresthesia. This spinal cord injury can cause you to feel constant burning or tingling sensations in your extremities.
All of these injuries are life changing and may also cause emotional and financial hardship. That is why you need to be represented by an attorney with the skills and experience to fight for you.
