Of all catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries are the most complex. A Spinal cord injury is an uncommon condition that has significant impact on the injured person's functional, medical, psychological and economic well being. Every year in this country alone, 8,000 to 12,000 people have a non-fatal spinal cord injury.
Paralysis is the inability to control the muscles that move the body. There are several levels of severity associated with paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia. The paraplegic has lost the partial or complete ability to move his legs while the quadriplegic is partially or completely unable to move both his legs and arms. Axiomatic brain injury (stroke) and spinal cord injury are the major causes of paralysis. The extent of the paralysis depends on the severity of the stroke or the location of the spinal cord injury. Paralysis can be permanent or temporary. Although scientists are making progress, the prognosis for reversing long-term paralysis is very slim. Spinal cord rehabilitation requires comprehensive medical and therapeutic patient management. Most spinal cord injuries result in loss of sensation and function. Spinal cord injuries are caused 48% of the time by motor vehicle accidents, 21% by falls, 14% by sports (66% of which are caused in diving accidents), violence 15% and other 2%.
Amputation is defined as removal by surgery of an external body part, usually all or part of a limb. Amputation may be required when a limb has been severely crushed or following death in a hand or foot because of impaired blood circulation, infection, frostbite, burns, or arteriosclerosis. Some amputees feel painful sensations from the removed part, a condition called phantom-limb pain.
Our lawyers and staff at Lasky Cooper Law are trained to handle all issues associated with paralysis and amputation cases on your behalf. We will provide you with the best spinal cord injury attorney you can find.
