What are Spinal Cord Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries can have a severe impact on victims and their families.
Spinal cord injuries are those injuries that damage the backbone. The spinal cord stretches from the neck to the lower back, and an injury to any part of the spinal cord can cause permanent damage. In most circumstances, the body parts impacted most are those beneath the point of injury on the spine.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries

There are three types of spinal cord injuries:

  1. Anterior Cord Syndrome: This type of injury occurs when the blood supply to the anterior section of the spinal cord is cut off, resulting in loss of sensation or movement.
  2. Central Cord Syndrome: As the most common spinal cord injury, central cord syndrome results when grey matter within the spinal cord sustains damage. This injury causes loss of mobility and sensation in the arms and hands.
  3. Brown-Séquard Syndrome: If trauma impacts only one side of the spinal cord, it can result in loss of mobility or sensation on that side. Victims may also lose the ability to feel temperature changes and lack sensitivity to pain on the side of the spinal cord that was not affected by the trauma.

Common indicators of a spinal cord injury may include loss of sensation or paralysis in body parts beneath the point of impact as well as loss of motor control in the arms, hands, legs, or feet.

Most Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. Other common causes include:

  • Falls down stairs or from heights
  • Assault and other acts of violence
  • Sports injuries

In a large majority of cases, the accidents that caused these serious injuries were the fault of another party. Negligent parties can be held liable for the victim’s damages.

Mr. Kenison has practiced personal injury for more than 25 years, and he is willing to fight for the compensation you need to make a full recovery.

"My husband was in a Motorcycle accident on June 11, 2014. He was seriously injured and spent several weeks in a trauma unit and 4 weeks in a rehab facility after several surgeries. I called John Kenison the day after the accident and he walked me through the difficult process of how to handle hospital bills and how to contact the Insurance companies involved. My husband was out of work for 4 months and Kenison Law was able to help us recover all loss wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. They are a caring law firm and are able to explain complex information during a vehicle difficult situation. I would highly recommend this law office." M. H.
★★★★★
"In the late summer of 2015, I had the misfortune of falling in a public place of business through no fault of my own. I was seriously injured, both my legs, which resulted in almost 6 months of modified bed rest and convalescing. Needless to say, I was completely overwhelmed with doctors; specialists; physical therapists and many other wonderful people. As if this was not daunting enough, it was told to me, in this time of utter chaos, I needed to engage an attorney. I have never had to hire an attorney..." R.W.W.
