What are the potential long-term consequences of a spinal cord injury?

The spine is an important component of the human body, yet it is subject to a broad range of injuries. When a spinal injury occurs, there are many potential long-term consequences. One of the top medical concerns is the possibility of paralysis. Paralysis may be temporary or permanent, partial or total. Spinal injuries can also worsen over time, eventually leading to paralysis. While not all spinal injuries result in loss of movement or feeling, it is a possibility that cannot be overlooked.

If you or someone close to you has suffered a spinal injury due to the negligence of another, contact a San Diego personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Although legal action cannot protect you from the threat of paralysis, it may lead to financial compensation, which can help with your medical treatment.
