Spinal Cord Injuries

Arizona Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

The spinal cord has important functions. Your lower back and your brain are connected because of your spinal cord. The spinal cord is responsible for the nerve signals that allow you to move and feel all those sensations. So, if your spinal cord is damaged, you won’t be able to move or function properly.

Once your spinal cord is injured, your life will change. You can lose strength, mobility, and bodily function. You lose the ability to feel sensation running through parts of your body. There’s the possibility you won’t be able to work or go to school. Depending on the type of spinal cord injury, going out to watch a movie or indulging in sports will be very difficult and potentially impossible. Most of all, a spinal cord injury costs hundreds of thousands of dollars for proper treatment.

Having someone with you who knows the law is important, especially if your injury was caused by another party or an unexpected incident. You have to hold the other party responsible for your injuries, but you’ll have to understand your situation first. An Alcock & Associate lawyer can help you learn vital information about the injury, the laws that apply to your case, and your rights as the injured party.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

The National Spinal Cord Injury Association estimates that around 450,000 U.S. residents are living with or suffer from spinal cord injuries (SCIs). Additionally, there are approximately 17,000 new SCIs in the United States every year, most of which are caused by vertebral column trauma.

There are two types of spinal cord injuries: complete and incomplete.

  • Complete spinal cord injury impacts both sides of the body. It leads to total paralysis below the injury level. It can cause paraplegia or paralysis of the lower half of the body or quadriplegia, which means all four limbs are paralyzed.
  • An incomplete spinal cord injury does not cause loss of function, so both sides of the body still have some function.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injury?

The most common causes are:

  • Vehicular accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Falls
  • Gunshot wounds and other acts or forms of violence
  • Medical or surgical complications

Symptoms depend on the location and type of damage. A spinal cord injury attorney will advise you to immediately seek medical assistance if you develop any of the following after the injury:

  • Inability to control bladder and bowel
  • Legs and arms weakness
  • Extreme pressure of pain in the back or neck
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Sensation in the legs and arms is diminished
  • Lumps in the spine that weren’t there before

Finding Legal Assistance for Spinal Cord Injury

Having a spinal cord injury is limiting and debilitating. In most cases, the injury is permanent. Serious injuries can be fatal. Adding to the burden is the fact that the SCI was caused by another party – a friend, neighbor, colleague, or anybody for that matter.

If you work with an expert attorney, you won’t have to go through all the stress of your situation. It is your right to find legal assistance and file for compensation for your injury and whatever losses you incurred.

An Arizona spinal cord injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Alcock & Associates will ensure that proper legal procedures are followed, the incident is thoroughly investigated, and the offender is held accountable. Collecting data and gathering evidence will be easier and won’t take up most of your time as well.
