Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Below are some of the common causes of spinal cord injuries:

Complete and Incomplete Spinal Cord Injuries

Depending on the nature of a person’s injury, a spinal cord injury may be what’s called either “complete” or “incomplete.”  If the injury is “complete,” the injured person will have no sensation or movement below the location of the injury. Paraplegia and quadriplegia are considered complete spinal cord injuries.  A complete spinal cord injury will cause paraplegia or quadriplegia, depending on the location of the injury on the spinal cord. A person with an incomplete spinal cord injury will have some feeling and possibly movement below the location of the injury, but it may be very limited. All spinal cord injuries are very serious and require immediate medical treatment.  An experienced West Virginia spinal cord injury lawyer can help you recover physically, emotionally and financially.

Testimonials

West Law Firm has great lawyers. They helped me in my case and every time I needed to call or talk to someone they were willing to talk and help me in anyway. They truly care about what they do and they have an amazing team. I will recommend them to all my friends and family. Thanks again!
Celeste
I’ve worked with other attorneys in the past, but West Law Firm has gone over and above my expectations! I was expecting the same old runaround about when somebody could get to my case. They kept me up-to-date about everything happening in my case so there was no need for me to call and ask questions continuously. They really worked for me and I would highly recommend these people.
