Spinal Cord Injury / Neurological Injury
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back. It carries signals back and forth between the body and the brain. A spinal cord injury is damage to any part of the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal. A spinal cord injury disrupts the signals. Spinal cord injuries usually begin with a blow that fractures or dislocates the vertebrae, the bone disks that make up the spine. Most injuries don’t cut through the spinal cord. Rather, they cause damage when pieces of vertebrae tear into cord tissue or press down on the nerve parts that carry signals.
Spinal cord injuries can be complete or incomplete. With a complete spinal cord injury, the cord can’t send signals below the level of the injury. As a result, you are completely paralyzed below the site of the injury. With an incomplete injury, you may still have some movement and sensation below the injury site. A spinal cord or neurological injury can also cause permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury.
Injuries suffered as a result of surgical malpractice can be extremely serious. To ensure you have the financial resources you will need to provide for medical care and treatment, contact a New York medical malpractice attorney at the Law Offices of Sam Rosmarin. We will consult credible experts, review the medical records, and conduct an investigation to determine what happened during the surgical process. If it is discovered that a doctor or nurse made a mistake that led to your injury, you will have grounds to file a medical malpractice lawsuit for damages.
Most spinal cord and other neurological injuries will require extensive treatment. Many victims of these injuries require treatment for the rest of their lives. Treatments may include medicines, braces or traction to stabilize the spine,, surgery and rehabilitation therapy. Many times, the victim of a spinal cord injury or a neurological injury will need a wheelchair, scooter or other device in order to get around.
