Each year, there are approximately 17,500 new spinal cord injuries reported in the United States. These injuries often have a devastating impact on a victim's personal life, career, and psychological condition.
The spinal cord is a tube-like structure filled with protective fluids and a delicate web of sensory and motor nerves. These critical nerves serve as messengers between your brain and the rest of your body. However, this connection can be interrupted if the spinal cord is partly or entirely damaged.
A person with an incomplete spinal cord injury retains some motor or sensory function below the point of injury. Some victims can control their extremities after sustaining an incomplete spinal cord injury, but the degree is entirely dependent upon the location and severity of the injury. Unfortunately, many of these survivors experience chronic pain because they retain that degree of sensation.
If you've sustained an incomplete spinal cord injury due to the negligent actions of another person or business, it's time to call the Montana personal injury lawyers at Odegaard Kovacich Snipes.
