Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries and paralysis are common injuries sustained from car, truck, and motorcycle accidents. A spinal cord injury is damage to any part of the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal, and the manner in which the injury was sustained may result in needing the assistance of a spinal cord injury lawyer.

Injuries to the spinal cord often cause permanent changes to the strength and sensations below the site of the injury. The closer the spinal cord injury is to the brain, the more the body is affected. An individual’s ability to control their limbs after a spinal cord injury depends on where the injury takes place on the spinal cord and the severity of the injury.

If you or a loved one has a spinal cord injury as a result of the negligence of another person, a member of our Phoenix spinal cord injury lawyer division at Phillips Law Group can help you.

    Symptoms of Spinal Cord Injuries

    According to the Mayo Clinic, auto and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries and account for almost half of new spinal cord injuries each year.

    If you have been involved in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident and suspect that someone has sustained a spinal cord injury, it’s important to recognize the symptoms.

    Delaying medical evaluation of the spinal cord can cause further damage.

    Symptoms of spinal cord injury after an accident include:

    • Weakness or paralysis in any part of the body
    • Extreme back pain or pressure in the head, back, or neck
    • Numbness or tingling in the hands, fingers, feet, or toes
    • Difficulty breathing
    • A twisted neck or back
    • Difficulty walking

    severe spinal injury is not always noticeable. Numbness and paralysis can be gradual as bleeding or swelling happens in or around the spinal cord injury.

    If you believe that someone has a back or neck injury:

    • Call 911
    • Do not move the injured person
    • Keep the person still
    • Place towels on both sides of the injured person’s neck, so the person can not move their neck
    • If necessary, provide basic first aid, keeping in mind to avoid moving the person’s neck

    Diagnosis of Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis

    An individual with a perceived spinal cord injury will be taken to the emergency room. It is there that a physician will carefully evaluate the patient. The physician may test the function and movement of the injured person.

    Doctors will often have X-rays, CT scans, or an MRI completed for the patient before giving their diagnosis. A few days after the injury, when the swelling goes down, the doctor will examine the patient to determine the extent of the injury.

    Sadly, there is no cure for a spinal cord injury. There are, however, currently medications on the market that control pain and muscle spasticity.

    The severity of spinal cord injury can be complete or incomplete.

    • Incomplete injury: The person still has some feeling or movement below the injury site. There are different degrees of incomplete injuries.

     

    Paralysis can be broken down into two categories:

      • Paraplegia: Parts or all of the torso, legs, and pelvic organs are affected by the spinal cord injury.

      • Quadriplegia: The arms, hands, torso, legs, and pelvic organs are affected by the injury.
