The spinal cord is the central nervous system's primary pathway transmitting brain signals throughout the entire body. Any damage to the spinal cord caused by trauma, rather than disease, is referred to as Spinal Cord Injury, or SCI. Depending on the location and degree of the injury, victims can suffer from a range of life-changing conditions.

Damages From
Spinal Cord Injuries:
Spinal Cord Injury is most commonly caused by major trauma incurred during car and truck wrecks, falls, violence or work-related accidents with automobile accidents taking the lead. There are two classifications of SCI, incomplete and complete. A complete Spinal Cord Injury indicates sensation and function are completely lost below the site of the injury. An incomplete SCI indicates only partial damage to the areas below the site of injury.

The effects of Spinal Cord Injury can range from pain, loss of sensation or motor function to paralysis and can even affect the function of primary organs. In general, incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries offer greater odds of recovery within six to nine months of the injury. However, the recovery of complete Spinal Cord Injuries is more predictable as few victims recover any lost sensation or function. If you or a loved one has incurred a Spinal Cord Injury caused by the negligence of another person or company, you need legal representation to protect your interest. Rehabilitation for SCI is arduous and can leave families buried in debt. What's more, many victims are left with life-altering disabilities that can require part to full-time care for the rest of their lives.
