The term “Spinal Cord Injury” can send your mind reeling with possible consequences. KMSC Law has assisted many accident victims with spinal cord injuries, and we can help you, too.
Depending on which area of the spine is injured, an accident victim may experience a range of permanent disabilities. Victims may experience “Tetraplegia” (also called “Quadriplegia”), which is the partial or complete inability to use all four of their limbs and torso. Tetraplegia also may be accompanied by a loss of physical sensation, bowel and bladder control and sexual function. Victims may alternatively experience “Paraplegia,” which is the partial or complete inability to use or even feel your legs. Lesser-known symptoms include localized paralysis of a single arm, leg, or side of the body.
Your life will be significantly altered no matter which spinal cord injury you experience. In addition to new disabilities, the accident victim may face overwhelming medical bills, the inability to work in their profession or to participate in recreational activities, and the reduced ability to interact with loved ones.
Life changes after a spinal cord injury—for the victim, their family, and their friends. At KMSC Law, we can guide you through this life-altering experience, ensure you and your family are compensated for your injuries, and help you and your family enjoy life again.
