Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are separated into two categories: complete and incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury is one where the victim has no feeling or mobility below the injury site. An incomplete spinal cord injury allows for some feeling or mobility.

Some common spinal cord conditions include:

  • Paraplegia

  • Spinal contusions

  • Anterior cord syndrome

  • Quadriplegia

  • Brown-Sequard syndrome

  • Central cord syndrome

  • Spinal stenosis

Spinal cord damage can confine you to a wheelchair for the rest of your life. Many victims are unable to accomplish simple day-to-day tasks. This can take a toll on you emotionally. Our team may be able to help you seek general damages for the mental anguish you have experienced. The state of Mississippi limits non-economic damages in personal injury cases to $1 million.

The Costs of a Spinal Cord Injury

Often, spinal cord injuries lead to astronomical expenses. You may need to fly to another state for medical care, face multiple surgeries, hire a caretaker, modify your home or vehicle to accommodate your injury, attend physical therapy, or continue seeing physicians and specialists far into the future. In addition, you may go without a paycheck while you recover. Some victims are never able to return to their jobs. Don't face the finances alone--our team is here to help you fight for the compensation that could cover these costs. We work on settlements and trials throughout Southaven, Hernando, Horn Lake, Olive Branch, and all of North Mississippi.
