Recovering from catastrophic spine damage

Louisiana residents who have gotten into a severe car crash can face numerous long and short term injuries. One of the biggest possible risks of a serious crash is spinal cord damage. These types of injury can permanently change the way a person functions in their daily life.

FindLaw takes a look at some of the most common types of car crash injuries, which includes damage to both the back and head. Spinal damage in particular can cause huge issues, since the spinal cord is responsible for command of the nerves. Damage to the cord can cause a patient to suffer from a loss of sensation or difficulty controlling limbs or other parts of the body. In some cases, complete paralysis may happen.

Mayo Clinic takes a look at some of the symptoms involved in spinal cord injuries as well. They mention that paralysis or loss of sensation can be either complete or incomplete depending on the degree of motion and sensation lost. Paralysis can also be categorized as paraplegic or tetraplegic, also known as quadriplegia. The latter affects all limbs as well as the trunk and pelvic organs. The former affects the legs, pelvic organs, and part of the trunk.

Regardless of the type of spinal cord damage faced, it will almost surely have a big impact on the life of the sufferer. Medical costs can skyrocket over time as well, which is one of many reasons as to why these victims may seek compensation and benefit from it.
