Because the spine allows the brain to communicate with the rest of the body, these injuries have lasting repercussions.

If you’ve sustained a spine injury in Starke or Bradford County, the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. can help. Our legal team has more than a century of combined experience, and we are available 24/7 to answer your call.

What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?

According to the U.S. government’s MedlinePlus, spinal cord injuries disrupt the signals going back and forth between your brain and body and “usually begin with a blow that fractures (breaks) or dislocates your vertebrae.” While injuries do not affect the spinal cord directly in most cases, displaced bone fragments, disc material, or ligaments can bruise or tear into spinal cord tissue and cause varying degrees of damage.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries can be complete or incomplete and are graded via the American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA) impairment scale.

A complete spinal cord injury means you cannot move your muscles or experience sensation below the site of your injury, and an incomplete spinal cord injury indicates some level of function below the site where your injury took place.

  • ASIA A injuries are complete, with no sensory or motor function preserved.
  • ASIA B injuries indicate motor complete injuries with some sensory function.
  • ASIA C injuries are those where less than half the affected muscles still work.
  • ASIA D injuries are those where more than half the affected muscles still work.
  • ASIA E injuries represent a full recovery.

Often, spinal cord injuries lead to motor function loss, which is another word for paralysis. Many people who experience spinal cord injuries are paraplegic (paralyzed from the waist down) or quadriplegic (paralyzed from the neck down). Although these are not types of spinal cord injuries, they can be useful to describe the effects of this kind of injury.

If you have suffered paralysis due to someone else’s negligence, call our Starke spine injury lawyer to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Living With a Spinal Cord Injury

Many people who suffer spinal cord injuries never fully recover. That being said, the right care and treatment can make a big difference in your quality of life. Filing a catastrophic injury lawsuit can help you afford emergency medical care, physical therapy, counseling for emotional support, assistive care and devices, and time away from work – as well as compensation for pain and suffering and all other economic and non-economic damages associated with your accident or injury.
