Many factors affect spinal cord injury outcomes

Spinal cord injuries can impact your life in a variety of ways. In many cases, the extent of the effects you will experience are based on the area of the spinal cord that was injured. The type of injury that you suffered can also have an impact on the effects of the injuries.

We understand that all spinal cord injuries are scary. If the injury is complete, you might be facing a more difficult journey than if the injury was incomplete. Complete injuries occur when there is a total loss of function below the injury site. An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when the function below the injury is only partially affected.

Generally, the higher the level of injury, the more it will affect your life. The spinal cord is divided into four sections. The cervical spine is the upper-most area of the spine. The thoracic spine is just below that. The lumbar spine is below the thoracic spine. The sacral spinal cord is the lowest area, which is near the tailbone.

When you suffer a spinal cord injury, you will likely need considerable medical care. This can include emergency treatment at the time of the injury. It can also include rehabilitative care and treatment for secondary issues that might come into the picture. In all of those cases, you are likely going to have to miss work to get the care you need.

We know that the cost of getting care after a spinal cord injury is considerable. We can help you to learn about the options that you have for seeking compensation if your injury was the result of negligence on the part of another party.
