The Severe Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can result in life-altering consequences, including paralysis, loss of sensation, and a wide range of physical and emotional challenges. Victims may require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care, which can place a significant financial strain on them and their families. The emotional toll of adapting to a new reality and coping with the limitations imposed by the injury can be equally devastating. 

When a spinal cord injury is caused by someone else's negligence, whether through a car accident, workplace incident, or any other preventable situation, it is crucial to seek the help of an experienced personal injury attorney who can guide you and your loved ones through the legal process and fight for your rights and the compensation you deserve.

Common Causes and Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can occur in a variety of situations, often due to the negligence or recklessness of others. Some of the most common causes in Atlanta include:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle and e-scooter accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Acts of violence
  • Sports and recreational activities

These accidents can lead to different types of spinal cord injuries, which are generally categorized as either complete or incomplete, depending on the extent of damage to the spinal cord.

Complete Spinal Cord Injuries:

  • Result in total loss of sensation and motor function below the level of injury
  • May cause paraplegia (paralysis of the legs and lower body) or tetraplegia (paralysis of all four limbs)

Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries:

  • Result in partial loss of sensation and motor function below the level of injury
  • May cause varying degrees of paralysis, weakness, and sensory impairment
  • Examples include anterior cord syndrome, central cord syndrome, and Brown-Sequard syndrome

Regardless of the cause or type of your spinal cord injury, the experienced Atlanta attorneys at Hagen Rosskopf, "The People's Lawyers," are here to help. We will work tirelessly to investigate your case, identify all liable parties, and pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to under the law. 

Our goal is to ensure that you receive the support and resources you need to move forward with your life.
