Back & Spinal Cord Injury Attorney Augusta, Evans, Waynesboro, and Thomson
Back and spinal cord injuries are used by laypeople interchangeably, but they’re not the same condition. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that stretch from the brain down through the bones in your back. When the spinal cord is injured, trauma to the cord itself or indirectly through the bones or soft tissue near damages the nerve pathway. It’s a vital body part. Its nerves relay information that controls every bodily function, including the involuntary ones. Spinal cord damage can impact a victim’s life in permanent and debilitating ways.
A spinal cord injury can result in devastating and life-long ill effects. Sometimes, victims die. Though they may seem minor at first, spinal cord injuries can keep someone out of work months, year, perhaps forever, and in almost every case, even when people do return to work, it can take months to recover. Sometimes, rehabilitative therapy of some kind is necessary. Everyone’s case is unique, and it pays to talk to someone about your case to see if you’re entitled to recover, for example, resources you’re losing to your recovery.
Damage to your spinal cord can cause weakness in your muscles and sensory loss. Some severe spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other permanent disabilities, some of which might require accommodation in a wheelchair or other assistive device. Hawk Law Group can help you get back some of what you’ve lost to spinal cord injury by advocating in the courts on your behalf. Once your back has been injured, you’re susceptible to more injury in the future. The result could be an endless cycle of damage and repair, leaving sufferers with ongoing pain and life-long issues.
Some of the effects of a spinal cord injury, aside from paralysis, can include loss of sensations like temperature and touch; respiratory distress; pain and weakness in extremities; sexual dysfunction and infertility; and loss of bladder and bowel control. When the spinal cord is injured, the result can be catastrophic. When the back is injured, you’re much more likely to heal, but your likelihood of reinjury is high.

Georgia Back Injury Attorneys
At The Hawk Law Group, we know that the extent of back and neck injuries are not always immediately apparent, even to medical professionals. This is because they are treated on a graduated scale, and certain medical tests, including MRIs, may not be ordered until a substantial amount of time has passed since the injury occurred. This is why it is extremely important that you do not settle with an insurance company, as you will miss the opportunity to be compensated in full for your injury.
