Side Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can be caused from a variety of incidents including car accidents, workplace accidents, bullet wounds, sports injuries, and more. Car accidents remain the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis, loss of sensation and reflex function below the point of injury. As a result, functions such as breathing and bowel control can be affected.

You can also experience other symptoms:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pain/sensitivity to stimuli
  • Bladder infections
  • Lung infections
  • Bed sores

Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can have a devastating impact on a person's life, affecting their mobility, sensation, and overall quality of life. It's important to understand the different types of spinal cord injuries and the potential long-term effects they can have.

Types of spinal cord injuries include:

  • Complete spinal cord injury: This type of injury results in a total loss of sensation and motor function below the level of the injury.
  • Incomplete spinal cord injury: In this type of injury, some function and sensation below the level of the injury are retained.
  • Tetraplegia (quadriplegia): This type of injury affects all four limbs and the torso, resulting in paralysis.
  • Paraplegia: This type of injury affects the lower half of the body, resulting in paralysis of the legs and possibly the lower part of the body.

At Kolker Law Firm, our team of Missouri spinal cord injury lawyers understands the complexities of these injuries and the impact they can have on our clients' lives. We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of spinal cord injury victims and helping them seek just compensation for their suffering.

Recoverable Damages for Spinal Cord Injury Victims

Spinal cord injuries are some of the most expensive injuries for survivors in terms of medical care. Injuries of the spine and nerves often require lifelong medical treatments and therapies. Even a relatively minor back injury can require thousands of dollars worth of medical checkups, medications, and treatments. An attorney can help you pursue compensation for many of these losses.

Spinal cord injury victims can pursue full and fair compensation for a wide range of damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • In-home care
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Loss of consortium
  • Permanent disability
  • Pain and suffering
