Motor vehicle accidents, medical mistakes, or dangerous conditions at your job could cause you to experience one of these catastrophic spinal cord injuries.

Examining Your Catastrophic Spinal Cord Injury

Perhaps you were involved in a collision with a tractor trailer, or you fell down a set of malfunctioning stairs and you were left with a spinal cord injury as a result. Whatever the cause, your life has changed permanently because of the injury.  Instead of going to work or spending time with your family, now your days consist of doctor and physical therapy appointments. As you can imagine, these fees start to get high rather quickly, especially when you don’t have any income coming in.

Catastrophic Spinal Cord Injuries

If your catastrophic spinal cord injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to sue for damages. Some of the most common catastrophic spinal cord injuries include:

  • Central cord syndrome. This injury occurs when the upper portion of the spinal cord is unable to communicate with the brain. The result is often weakness or paralysis in the arms. Not being able to use your arms could result in a loss of your job and is likely considered catastrophic.
  • Brown-Sequard syndrome. Brown-Sequard syndrome can result in damage to either side of the spinal cord. Loss of pain and temperature sensation on the opposite side of the injury is common in those who are affected.
  • Nerve cell injuries. Damaged nerve cells in the back can cause a loss of sensory or motor function in the injured part of the body, which can prevent you from being able to perform daily tasks.
