Serious Spinal Cord Injuries
Our Dedicated St. Petersburg Personal Injury Attorney Can Help
Injuries to the spinal cord usually result in paralysis below the point
of injury on the spine. When the injury occurs in or near the neck, the
victim may become quadriplegic (total paralysis in all four limbs). Injuries
in the lower spine can lead to paraplegia, or paralysis of just the lower
extremities. Needless to say, spinal cord injuries can be devastating,
and can turn an otherwise healthy person's life upside. A victim may
require a wheelchair, a permanent caregiver, multiple medications, on-going
physical and occupational therapy, and frequent doctor visits and hospitalizations.
Clearly the cost of treating and caring for a spinal cord injury will
be expensive, which is why it is best to contact an experienced spinal
cord injury attorney who can help.

Why Spinal Injuries Are So Serious
The nervous system in the body is like an electric circuit and your spine
is the major artery for sending signals. In minor cases, where there is
trauma to a disc or part of nerve is compressed, there can be pain, numbness,
or a "burning sensation." In more serious cases, nerve damage
can be permanent, preventing your brain from sending the necessary signals
for movement and other functions to parts of your body.
