You Need a Fairfield County Personal Injury Lawyer
Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious types of injuries that a person can suffer. The spinal cord is responsible for transmitting messages from the brain to other parts of the body. When these messages are disrupted through nerve or tissue damage in or around the spinal cord, this greatly affects a person's ability to move certain parts of his or her body. Spinal cord injuries often result in paralysis.
Spinal Cord Injuries & Additional Compensation
Spinal cord injuries are catastrophic injuries that can have detrimental effects on victims' lives. Not only can they greatly diminish the quality of a person's life, but they can also necessitate extremely expensive medical care. An accident victim with a spinal cord injury might need multiple surgeries, costly medical equipment such as wheelchairs and possibly even in-home care for years to come. These injuries can also leave the accident victim unable to work, which prevents the person from earning income.

We want to help you hold the at-fault party legally and financially liable through a personal injury claim so that you can secure the compensation you need.
Understanding Paralysis and Spinal Disk Damage
Spinal cord injuries usually occur when a person receives a strong blow to their back or neck areas. These blows can result in the spinal cord's vertebrae being dislocated or fractured, according MedlinePlus, a service of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Paralysis resulting from spinal cord injuries can be either complete or partial. With complete paralysis, the victim is completely unable to move parts of the body below the point of injury. With partial paralysis, the victim will be able to move the parts of the body below the injury, but the movement will be limited. Individuals can be either paraplegic (paralyzed in the lower half of the body) or quadriplegic (paralyzed from the neck down). In some cases, individuals do not suffer from paralysis, but they do suffer from excruciating pain from bulging or damaged spinal disks.
