Differences Between Dallas Spinal Cord Injuries and Spinal Injuries

by | Feb 29, 2024 | Lawyers & Law Firms

Spinal cord injuries can result in permanent paralysis. However, not everyone seeking the services of a Dallas spinal cord injury lawyer after an accident or injury is permanently paralyzed. The results of a spinal cord injury will vary depending on the type of injury the person experienced and where the injury happened on the spinal cord. In some cases, they will result in a full loss of mobility.

As an experienced Dallas spinal cord injury lawyer, I know that no two spinal cord injuries are exactly the same, and no two individuals recover the same. Some may recover their ability to walk or feel sensations, and others may not. It is important to understand that there is a difference between a spinal injury and a spinal cord injury. A person can injure their spine without damaging the spinal cord. An injury to the spinal cord interferes with the signals between the brain and the spinal cord. This leads to a loss of mobility.

On the other side of the coin, spinal injuries do not affect the spinal cord. These injuries could be a ruptured disc, a dislocated vertebrate, a misaligned vertebrate, or a herniated disc. All of these conditions can lead to severe pain and be debilitating. Personal injury victims with spinal injuries may also want to speak to an attorney about getting compensation for their injuries.
