Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Proving fault is the key to a successful personal injury claim involving a spinal cord injury. Our attorneys work with professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to accurately determine what caused a client's injuries and, therefore, what individual or company should be held accountable. We also work with medical experts and economists to properly determine the full and fair value of each client's claim.

Our team takes on spinal cord injury cases involving:

Complete vs. Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury

Spine injuries often result in one of two categories of damage: complete or incomplete. These types of injuries show how much of your body may suffer from the impact of the damages.

  • Complete spinal cord injury: A complete spinal cord injury causes you to lose all functionality in the parts of your body beneath the location of the injury. For instance, a thoracic spine injury can lead to a complete lack of control of your lower limbs. You may still have use of your hands, but both sides of your body below the area of the injury lose functionality.
  • Incomplete spinal cord injury: An incomplete spinal cord injury impacts one side of your body more than the other. For instance, with a lumbar spinal cord injury impacting your legs, you may lose functionality in one leg, but retain some functionality in your other leg.

The Long-Term Effects

The most severe spine injuries result in you losing complete functionality in all four of your limbs. You may experience pain, difficulty completing everyday tasks, long-term medical care, and an inability to earn an income.

When you factor in the long-term costs associated with paralysis—sometimes topping millions of dollars—you need to pursue compensation. You shouldn't have to deal with the aftermath of someone else's negligence on your own. Let The Edwards Law Firm be the advocates you need to pursue the compensation you need.
