One of the most complicated cases, spinal cord injury claims require special attention and competence to deal with. Resulting from a sudden blow to the areas ranging from the neck to lower back, spinal cord injuries involve heavy damage of vertebrae. Clients face total (complete) or partial (incomplete) loss of both sensory and motor functions of the body. The clients deal with:
Loss of Sensation – the worst case scenario is inability to feel any cold, heat or touch-related sensations.
Loss of Movement – is an inability to perform a full (complete) spectrum of actions and, in some cases, difficulty breathing.
Traumatizing Pain – the range of pain may vary from dull, non-ending aching to sensations of stabbing, pulling, stinging and other forms of physical irritations that go on for months.
