Spinal Shock Lawsuit Compensation
Trauma to the spinal cord can result in spinal shock, which may mimic a complete spinal cord injury, one in which there is a complete loss of motor and sensory function below the level of the spinal injury (spinal lesion). With spinal shock there is a temporary loss of all or most spinal reflex activity below the level of the injury. By definition some motor and sensory function return after a period of time, but there may still be paralysis or partial loss of motor function, loss of bladder control, breathing issues, loss of pain sensation, loss of temperature sensation, and other complications.
People who experience spinal shock due to a defective product or the negligence of another deserve compensation, including medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, emotional distress and other damages.
The traumatic event causing spinal shock is usually a traffic accident, fall, work injury or sports injury.
It may take several hours after a traumatic spinal injury for spinal shock to progress.
