Spinal Cord Injuries Attorney in the San Fernando Valley

SFV Personal Injury Lawyer - (818) 783-8446

Looking for an attorney for a spinal cord injury case in the San Fernando Valley or anywhere else in Southern California? The back and spinal cord are very sensitive and they are crucial for mobility and every basic human function. Not very many people are actually familiar with what the spinal cord is and what its primary purpose is. The spinal cord runs all the way up the middle of your back up to your brain. It is comprised of countless nerves and it is used to help send messages to and from the brain and the rest of the body.

When someone takes a serious blow to the spine and they dislocate or damage one of their vertebrae, the spinal cord could be at risk for injury. In minor cases, the spinal cord is torn or compressed, but in more severe cases the cord is severed completely. When this happens, the victim runs the risk of being paralyzed from the point of injury down. With any spinal cord injury, it is vital that the victim seeks immediate medical attention and treatment. If a spinal cord injury goes untreated for too long, it could get worse and the result could be permanent and catastrophic. In many cases, spinal cord injury victims are required to wear a special brace in order to keep the spine stable and aligned. Other times, surgery is required. Long term treatment usually consists of physical therapy, rehabilitation and medication to keep you comfortable.

Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury

The side effects of this injury could vary depending on where the spinal cord was damaged and the level of severity. If the spinal cord was severed completely, the symptoms will, of course, be much more obvious. Some commons signs of a spinal cord injury include:

  • Mobility and function of the upper body but no movement below the injury (Partial paralysis)
  • Feelings of severe weakness
  • Loss of muscle functioning
  • Loss of sensation in the lower body
  • Loss of control of the bladder and bowel movements
  • Inability to perform normal sexual functions
  • A difficulty in breathing (this could lead to the use of a ventilator or an oxygen machine)

If you or someone you love has been in accident and are now experiencing any of these symptoms, please be sure to seek emergency medical attention.
