Aggressively Pursuing Benefits For Spinal Cord Injuries In Southern California
Severe spinal cord injuries can have serious consequences on victims’ lives. Many victims are unable to function as they did before the injury occurred and most are reliant on the care of others for help performing the simplest daily tasks like bathing, eating and getting in and out bed. Unfortunately, physical pain and loss of function is often compounded by the financial strain a severe injury can have on victims and their families. Spinal cord injury treatment costs can accrue quickly and soar into the millions.

Two Different Types Of Spinal Cord Injuries
- Incomplete spinal cord injury: An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when a victim has some movement and sensation below the injury site. Most victims suffering from an incomplete spinal cord injury are able to recover some function. However, even with the best possible treatment, it is likely that a victim will face long-term health conditions.
- Complete spinal cord injury: A victim who has sustained a complete spinal cord injury has permanently lost all sensation and movement below the site of injury. Complete spinal cord injuries suffered at work may result in a patient’s inability to walk, talk or breathe. In most cases, patients suffering from a complete spinal cord injury need round-the-clock care and long-term medical treatment.
