Spinal injuries are among the most severe and devastating of all injuries that you can experience. These are often catastrophic in that they can cause various types of paralysis, depending on what part of the spine has been damaged. Unfortunately, they are often the result of serious accidents, such as traffic collisions in which a driver or other parties have acted negligently or recklessly.

Spinal injuries consist of damage to or a severing of the spinal cord. The area of the body at and below the injury site will suffer serious consequences, depending on the severity of the damage. These injuries are generally caused by a blow to the spine that disrupts the pathways between the brain and the body.
Spinal injuries can result in a loss of sensory and motor functions below the point of the injury, causing severe physical, emotional, and financial challenges for those affected by it. The effects of a spinal injury can be temporary or permanent, such as in cases of irreversible paralysis.
Spinal injuries can cause such symptoms as:
- Weakness or paralysis in the arms, legs, trunk, feet, or hands
- Loss of sensation or numbness in the body
- Pain or discomfort in the back, neck, shoulders, or head
- Difficulty breathing, swallowing, speaking, or carrying out basic movements
- Muscle spasms or involuntary muscle contractions
- Loss of coordination and balance and difficulty walking
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Loss of sexual function
These injuries are commonly classified into two categories: 1. Incomplete and 2. Complete. Incomplete injuries are those in which some nerve communication remains between the brain and the body. This allows some type of sensation and bodily function to continue. Complete injuries result in the loss of all nerve communication between the brain and the injury site which leads to a total loss of sensation and motor control below the site.

A spinal injury can be devastating for accident victims and their families. Not only will you have to deal with life-altering physical disabilities that may be permanent but coping with the emotional trauma accompanying such an injury can be difficult. This can lead to anxiety, depression, and other negative mental states.
Families impacted by the spinal injury of a loved one often must adjust to a new way of life that includes having to manage daily care for the injury victim. These changes can place a strain on everyone involved. Furthermore, the financial costs of medical care, therapies, equipment, and loss of earning capacity for both victims and family caretakers can be enormous.
At Arshakyan Law Firm, we fight aggressively for spinal injury victims with claims seeking justice through compensatory damages. While nothing can truly compensate you and your family for all that you may have endured, financial recovery is essential for the entirety of your expenses and damages as well as resources to sustain you in the future.
Causes of Spinal Injuries
