Identifying Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury
When a traumatic accident causes a spinal cord injury that results in
quadriplegia, these symptoms are often very unmistakable. However, other spinal injuries
may be less obvious and take more time to develop before a person realizes
that they have suffered something more serious. However, most spinal cord
injuries do have this in common: the victim will suffer from significant
pain and be unable to engage in normal, everyday activities like they used to.
Most often there is no recovery from a paralyzing injury. The exception
is when the spinal cord is not severed and emergency surgery can help
resolve the condition, resulting in partial paralysis. Other spine injuries
can be successfully treated by conservative care, however, a patient still
may not recover to their former self.
If you have been injured in a serious accident and believe it could be
a spinal cord injury, do not hesitate to

Symptoms of Serious Spinal Cord Injuries
Sometimes spine injuries cause unrelenting neck or back pain, but do not
cause neurological deficits. Other times, the individual may start experiencing
neurological deficits like a drop foot caused due to low back spine injury
or hand dysfunction from a neck injury. If neurological symptoms develop,
often surgical intervention is the only solution to prevent the problem
from becoming permanent.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, make sure you get help:
- Numbness in legs, hands, arms, or elsewhere
- Loss of control of bladder
- Pain or stiffness around the neck
- Tingling sensation in limbs
- Difficulty walking
Selecting the Right Team for Your Case
Not all orthopedic doctors specialize in spine care. Because of this, a
non-specialist might not understand the seriousness of the injury or have
the expertise to offer you surgical alternatives. They may also not be
able to properly identify your injury or the challenges you may deal with.
That is why making sure you go to a specialist is key.
Just like all doctors do not have the expertise to treat a serious spine
injury, most personal injury lawyers do not have the expertise to properly
represent someone who has suffered a severe spinal cord injury. At Biren
Law Group, we have decades of experience successfully representing accident
victims who have sustained serious spine injuries. We not only know the
medical specialists who can provide you with the best care, but we also
