Who You Can Sue

If you have been told that you suffered a "mild" brain injury in the car accident, do not be misled. When the term "mild" is used it is referring to the rating on the Glasgow Coma Scale. This scale measures the initial assault on the brain and basically tells you how long you were out. It has nothing to do with the severity of the long-term damage to your brain. Even a "mild" brain injury can have devastating long-term consequences.

There are several types of spinal cord injuries:

  

Complete spinal cord injury: This type of injury equally impacts both sides of your body. A complete spinal cord injury means that you will not have any voluntary movement or physical sensation below the point of your injury.
Incomplete spinal cord injury: This type of injury does not always affect both sides of your body equally. When an incomplete spinal cord injury occurs, you will often experience some movement or sensation below the point of injury.
     If a small amount of tissue is damaged, it may be possible to achieve a complete recovery. However, severe incomplete and complete spinal cord injuries may result in paraplegia or quadriplegia. Paraplegia is the loss of movement and sensation from your waist down. Quadriplegia is the paralysis of your arms and legs, which typically occurs from your shoulders down.
