Spinal cord injuries can result in loss of sensation and permanent or temporary paralysis below the point of the damage. When damage to the spinal cord results in paralysis of both arms and legs, it is called quadriplegia; when damage to the spinal cord results in paralysis to either the lower or upper body, it is called paraplegia.
The permanency and severity of a spinal cord injury is determined by whether or not the spinal cord can still relay some messages to and/or from the brain. Those with a partial spinal cord injury may retain some sensation and movement below the point of the injury and may someday heal from their injury. Those with a complete spinal cord injury seldom recover and generally do not have any sensation or movement below the point of the injury.
Spinal cord accidents can occur anywhere: on the football field, in a car accident and even in a delivery room. Depending on where and how a spinal cord injury occurred will determine if you have legal recourse against the person or party responsible for the injury. It is always a good idea to consult an experienced Arizona spinal cord injury lawyer if you believe that your, or a loved one’s, injury was the result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness.
