Every day you wake up and you dedicate your time toward certain tasks. You dedicate time to commute to work, stay at work, commute back from work, and repeat this behavior as many times as requested by your job. Every day you are needed you show up and ensure that your job is complete. Some days you give it your all and some days you can always do better, however, you still show up and intend to come back as many times as you are expected. This kind of loyalty is important and you showing up for your job should mean that your job would show up to you. The truth is, though, sometimes your job doesn’t show up for you, and our workers compensation attorneys are here to help you pick up the pieces.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal Cord injuries are one of the scariest injuries because depending on where you are injured could depend on how you will live out the rest of your life. Spinal cord injuries are so traumatic because it is the system that literally connects all the information from your brain to the rest of your body. This means that your inner organs are dependent on the spinal cord as well as your mental status. If you were to injure a spinal cord by some traumatic force to your back then you are looking at short-term or long-term disability.

Complete injury typically means that you are wheelchair-bound in some way and to the extreme, you may only be able to move your head and have to be on a ventilator. An incomplete injury is one only one side of your body lacks sensation or is non-functional. It can be localized to just a leg or arm, but it can also be to multiple limbs or core. The recovery time for spinal cord injuries can be as little as 18 months.
