Types of spinal cord injuries
The spinal cord is a delicate collection of nervous tissue that extends from the brain down to the base of our spinal column. It is responsible for controlling our body’s movement and motor functions. The consequences of a damaged spinal cord are catastrophic and life-threatening.
There are two main types of spinal cord injuries that we see clients come in with at Kaylor, Kaylor & Leto, P.A.:
- Complete — A “complete” spinal cord injury results in the loss of functionality below the point of the injury. This is the most serious spinal cord injury you can suffer, and it results in either paraplegia (paralysis from the waist down) or quadriplegia (paralysis from the neck down). Many times these injuries occur after severe auto accidents and falls.
- Incomplete — When an “incomplete” spinal cord injury occurs, victims still have some sensation and movement below where the injury occurred, but they may never fully recover. This is a common injury after a slip and fall accident.
Our attorneys also represent victims of related injuries, such as herniated discs and fractures. These injuries also carry with them the potential for permanent pain and discomfort. Our lawyers are dedicated to getting you compensated for both your immediate medical bills and your long-term care.
