Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord and brain comprise the central nervous system. A traumatic spinal cord injury cuts off messages from the brain to the injured portion of the spinal cord resulting in loss of function to that area. There is currently no cure for a spinal cord injury. Equipment, accommodations, physical therapy techniques, and care do allow many people to lead lives in as comfortable and rewarding a manner as possible.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury occurs when the spinal fluid surrounding the brain is disrupted, allowing the fragile brain to crash into the hard surface of the skull. A brain injury can severely limit your ability to work, speak clearly, make decisions, and control emotions. Symptoms of a brain injury vary from person to person and often do not display themselves for days, weeks, or months following the accident. A victim of a brain injury may not recall all the facts of the accident. It is very important to speak with a qualified personal injury lawyer after an accident to reconstruct the facts of your injury.
