What Is Spinal Cord Injury?
In the United States, there are about 12,000 spinal cord injuries reported every year. Spinal cord injuries include damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves. Such an injury often leads to long-term or permanent changes in strength, feeling, and other bodily functions beneath the location of the injury.
There are two main categories of severity, including:
- Complete: when all feeling and ability to control movement below the injury are lost, the injury is referred to as complete
- Incomplete: when you retain some sensation or motor function beneath the sight of the injury, the injury is considered incomplete
There are several symptoms of a spinal cord injury. You might, for example, experience loss of movement, loss of the ability to feel touch, or loss of bladder control. Other indications include respiratory problems, such as coughing or difficulty breathing, and changes in sexual function or sensitivity.
If you have incurred a spinal injury because of someone else’s negligence, you could be entitled to compensation. To find out if you have a viable spinal cord injury case, contact our experienced catastrophic injury attorney at (808) 468-6484 today.
