The Apparent And Hidden Effects Of Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord and brain injuries can have both immediate and delayed effects on a person for their entire life. Because of the sometimes concealed nature of these injuries, it is essential that injured people obtain a comprehensive medical review. By understanding the full extent of your injuries and their potential debilitating effects, you can get a more accurate estimate of the compensation you need.

A spinal cord injury can have many symptoms and side effects, including:

  • Loss of control over extremities and other body parts
  • Loss of moment or paralysis
  • Altered sense, such as the loss of the ability to feel hot or cold
  • Intense pain or stinging
  • Weakness in any part of the body
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Severe pain or pressure in neck, head or back

Spinal cord injuries are most often the result of a car collision or crash. Insurance companies may approach you shortly after a car crash and offer a small settlement. Do not accept this settlement without first speaking with a lawyer at our firm. We can review the circumstances of your accident and injuries. This close examination allows us to help you get the fair compensation your injuries deserve.
