A Diagnosis Of Paralysis Can Change Your Future
Depending on the type of accident and the severity of the impact, an injury could lead to the loss of movement and/or sensation in parts of the body. The two main components of the central nervous system (CNS) are the brain and the spinal cord. The spinal cord collects sensations from the nerve endings throughout the body and communicates them to the brain. It is a function of the brain to receive these millions of impulses, organize them and send a motor response to the appropriate part of the body. If these lines of communication are damaged or the muscles are prevented from reacting, catastrophic injuries can occur.
Serious injuries to the spinal cord can result in paraplegia, hemiplegia or quadriplegia, depending on the level of damage. If you or a loved one has suffered a debilitating injury, contact our firm as soon as possible.
At Kurzban Kurzban Tetzeli and Pratt P.A., our attorneys have extensive experience guiding families through the process of obtaining monetary compensation. We represent clients throughout Florida and nationwide.
Damage To The Spinal Cord And Central Nervous System
It is important to remember that spinal cord injuries can be complete — nearly all movement and sensation is lost — or incomplete — there is some residual movement and sensation. We understand that the injury seriously impacts the entire family, and treatment and physical therapy can be lifelong and require the care of friends and family alike.
Something as simple as a pinched nerve or as complex as an E. coli infection can lead to damage in the central nervous system. If the body cannot sense and react to pain, pressure or injury, the results can be catastrophic. See our case results page to read about some of our successes.
