Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Though there are many different types of spinal cord injuries, all of these injuries can be classified as one of the following:
- Complete: A complete spinal cord injury occurs when the brain cannot communicate with the body below the point of injury whatsoever.
- Incomplete: An incomplete spinal cord injury results in partial communication between the brain and the body below the point of injury.
Both complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries can be devastating, but incomplete spinal cord injuries are generally considered less severe and more treatable than complete spinal cord injuries.
Some examples of complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries include:
- Spine contusions
- Spinal concussions
- Anterior cord syndrome
- Brown-Sequard syndrome
- Cauda equina syndrome
- Slipped, ruptured, or herniated discs
If you or someone you care about has suffered one of these or another type of spine injury, you could be entitled to financial compensation for your resulting damages. We encourage you to reach out to an experienced personal injury lawyer, like those at the Law Office of J.J. Talbott, who can help you with your claim.

The Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are severe injuries that nearly always have significant and life-changing effects on the lives of victims and their families. The effects of a spinal cord injury are immense and far-reaching, ranging from the physical to the psychological to the financial.
Some of the most common effects of spinal cord injuries include:
- Partial or total paralysis
- Reduced mobility
- Sexual dysfunction
- Loss of fertility
- Exaggerated reflexes
- Nerve damage
- Respiratory problems
- Low blood pressure
- Swelling of the extremities
- Severe pain, including chronic pain

Coping with the effects of a spinal cord injury can be physically, emotionally, and financially taxing.
