The spinal cord, a group of nerves protected by vertebrae, drives movement and feeling. However, it can be damaged when a vertebrae breaks and injures the cord, often through a traumatic event such as a car accident, a fall or a sports accident. This affects, to different degrees, the nerves’ ability to communicate.
Symptoms of spinal cord injuries (SCI) depend on the severity of the injury and also the location (such as lower back, neck, etc). These injuries are most often associated with temporary or permanent paralysis but they can also affect your skin, bowels, bladder, and breathing. Often the effects of the injury may not present themselves immediately after the accident, but instead develop over time.
This is a very serious injury that can affect every aspect of your life, and will require a legal team experienced in handling complex claims. At Warnett Hallen, we have that experience, but also compassion and understanding for our clients as they undergo a difficult struggle. If you have had a spinal cord injury after an accident, contact the personal injury lawyers at Warnett Hallen – we can help.
