Focused Legal Help for those with Permanent Paralysis

Brain or spinal cord injury is highly individual. To one person, trauma to spinal nerves may result in bruising and temporary loss of function, while the same injury in another person may leave him or her permanently paralyzed. The effect of a spinal cord injury (SCI) is determined by level and loss of function:

  • Level: The higher the injury on the spine, the greater the likelihood of loss of function. Damage to the cervical spine at the neck can lead to tetraplegia paralysis of the arms, legs and trunk of the body — while damage to the lower sacral spine may lead to bowel and bladder dysfunction and leg weakness or paralysis.
  • Loss of function: Spinal injuries are categorized as complete and incomplete. Individuals with incomplete spinal injury generally retain some form of mobility or sensory awareness. A complete SCI means mobility and sensory ability is lost beneath the injury site, leading to total paralysis.

Medical science continues to develop methods to reduce the short- and long-term consequences of SCI.  Drug therapy may improve the prognosis, while researchers continue to explore whether rapid surgery to remove debris or bones impinging on the spinal cord and nerves can improve overall outcome and recovery.
