Injuries to the Spinal Cord
The spinal cord has a pivotal function – carrying the messages between the brain and other parts of the body. It is how the brain triggers the sensory functions, motor functions, and autonomic functions. The majority of spinal cord injuries are caused by trauma to the vertebral column that protects the spinal cord. When the vertebral column has suffered damage, this can prevent these messages from being sent or received. The victim is then left with a loss of sensation and paralysis.
Types of Injuries
There are two different classifications of spinal cord injuries – incomplete and complete. An incomplete injury is one in which there is a partial severance of the spinal cord, leaving the victim with some level of function. A complete injury is where the spinal cord has been completely severed, leaving the victim with no function.
A Cheyenne spinal cord injury lawyer knows that a spinal cord injury can leave a victim with one of these potentially catastrophic conditions:
- Paraplegic – The injury has left the victim with paralysis of both their legs.
- Triplegic – The injury has left the victim with paralysis of both legs and one arm.
- Quadriplegic – The injury has left the victim with paralysis of both legs and both arms.
Life-Long Costs of Spinal Cord Injuries
Unlike other types of injuries that will eventually heal, spinal cord injuries are permanent. The medical and personal care victims require for the rest of their lives can be financially devastating to the victim and their families. It is estimated that the lifetime costs for a paraplegic are more than $2.5 million.
This is an astronomical amount for any one person to have to struggle with. This is why state law allows accident victims to pursue damages against the party or parties responsible for the accident that caused the accident.
