Tucson Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

Injuries to the Spinal Cord

Like soft tissue injuries, injuries to the spinal cord might not be immediately obvious. However, spinal cord injuries usually qualify as catastrophic injuries and can be classified into two types: complete spinal cord injuries and incomplete spinal cord injuries. With a complete spinal cord injury, the result is quadriplegia or paraplegia, with permanent loss of nerve and motor function to the affected areas. Incomplete spinal cords are those in which the individual maintains some degree of sensation and movement below the injured part of the spine.

  • Loss of sensation and lost of movement on opposite sides of the body
  • Loss of function in the arms but with some leg movement
  • Partial or complete loss of touch, pain and temperature sensation
  • Maintains touch, pain and temperature sensations but with poor coordination

This can involve frequent medical visits and pain rehabilitation, wheelchair use and the significant alterations to the home to allow for use of a wheelchair.
