Have You Suffered From Spinal Cord Injuries?
By The Numbers
Nearly 15,000 people suffer from spinal cord injuries in the United States every year. Due to the severity of these injuries, well over half of those who sustain them will suffer from some form of permanent paralysis.
The industries that employ a majority of South Texans tend to be high risk. Oilfield work, construction, and maritime employment all offer ample opportunities for spinal cord injuries. Sadly, these injuries almost always result in a loss of wages, excessive medical expenses, physical pain, and an impacted quality of life.
When you sustain a spinal cord injury, you have a right to seek compensation for all of your damages. The McAllen personal injury attorneys at the Moore Law Firm are here to help you get every penny you deserve.
Types Of Spinal Cord Injuries And Their Impact
Depending on the nature of your accident, spinal cord injuries can have different impacts on your abilities. Injuries to your cervical, or upper, spine may result in:
- Inability to breath normally
- Loss of function in one or both hands
- Loss of function in one to all four limbs
Injuries to your thoracic, or middle, spine can cause:
- Loss of control over abdominal muscles
- Impacted dexterity
- Loss of function in one or both legs
Injuries to your lumbar/sacral, or lower, spine may result in:
- Involuntary leg movements
- Loss of bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
Although of varying degree, these injuries all result in significant medical bills, reduce your ability to work and earn a living, and have a serious impact on your quality of life.
