Spinal Cord Injuries
Most spinal cord injuries begin with a sudden blow that fractures or dislocates the vertebrae. Pieces of the vertebrae can pierce the spinal cord tissue or press down on the nerves that carry the signals. Spinal cord injuries can be divided into two categories complete and incomplete. Complete injuries are when patients lose almost all feeling and all ability to control movement below the level of the injury, as result the patient is paralyzed below injury site. When a patient has an incomplete injury they have some feeling and movement below the injury.
Sadly, thousands of passenger occupants are killed every year in Arizona car accidents. Family members of the accident victim may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, funeral expenses and other losses associated with the vehicle crash.
