Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Los Angeles

Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

The spine is part of the body’s nervous system. It’s the avenue through which the brain transmits signals to the entire body. These signals must be sent properly for the body to do almost all of its normal activities, including walking, using fine motor skills, moving the limbs, and more. An injury to the spinal cord can represent a permanent change to your quality of life, altering your physical abilities forever.

Damage to the spinal cord is the cause of many debilitating medical conditions. It also can bring an extreme financial burden on yourself and your family. Spinal cord injuries cause many victims to need adaptive devices. Rehabilitation is almost always necessary, and some victims need supervised care – sometimes for their entire lives. If you or your loved one have experienced a spinal cord injury in Los Angeles, the offices of Grey Law can help.

Common Spinal Cord Injuries and Effects

Compression and contusion are the most common spinal cord injuries. Compression is caused by excessive pressure on the spinal cord, whereas contusion is a bruising of the spine. Lacerations are typically the most severe spinal cord injuries. However, any of these types of traumas can lead to severe, debilitating health consequences. One of the worst is paralysis.

In spinal cord injuries, paralysis often begins at the point of the injury and affects everything below it. This means the waist and legs are most often affected. Inability to walk and loss of sensation are common. Loss of reflexes, including bowel control, may occur. Chronic pain and sexual dysfunction may also be results of spinal cord injuries. In the long-term, a spinal cord injury is a blow to a victim’s immune system. Many who experience these injuries are more susceptible to infection the rest of their lives.

All of these consequences can mean a decrease in one’s quality of life. It’s no surprise this often results in emotional and mental illness, particularly in cases of paralysis. Loneliness, anger, denial, hopelessness, irritability, and depression are all common. Particularly since many are unable to work afterwards and rehabilitation is slow, many victims find it hard to escape these feelings. These emotional disturbances all disrupt and slow the healing process.

Treatment and Compensation

Immediate, quality treatment is essential for rehabilitation from a spinal cord injury to be successful. Most people also need long-term rehabilitation and mental health services after a spinal injury. The typical family in Los Angeles can be crushed under the bills for this rehabilitation, particularly since these injuries often result in loss of work.
