Carrollton Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

The spinal cord is the part of the body that transmits messages from your brain to the rest of your body. In simplistic terms, a spinal cord injury is any injury to the tissue of the spinal cord that causes an interruption in the transmission of neurons from the brain to the rest of the body.  Any spinal cord injury is considered catastrophic as it could result in partial or total paralysis or even death.

There are different levels of spinal cord injuries.  The spine is the bone or hard tissue that protects the spinal cord from injury.  The spine is broken into sections known as the cervical spine, thoracic spine, and lumbar spine. The levels of spinal cord injuries correspond with those sections of the spine.  The higher the spinal cord injury on the body, the more devastating the effects.

The Levels of Spinal Cord Injury

  • High Cervical Nerves (C1-C4 Vertebra)
  • Low Cervical Nerves (C5-C8 Vertebra)
  • Upper Thoracic Nerves (T1-T5 Vertebra)
  • Lower Thoracic Nerves (T6-T12 Vertebra)
  • Lumbar Nerves (L1-L5 Vertebra)
  • Sacral Nerves (S1-S5 Vertebra)
