A healthy nervous system is vital to a person’s ability to live a comfortable and pain-free life. The nervous system controls every function that your body can perform, from the movement of an arm or a leg, to the ability to fully take in and process information through the five senses. During a serious accident, the nervous system can be damaged, which may inhibit a person’s ability to work and live normally without severe pain and suffering.
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we understand that damage to the spine and spinal cord can affect the nervous system causing pain, numbness and tingling in the injured area. Our lawyers represent clients who have suffered nerve damage in personal injury cases and work hard to get them the compensation that they need for their medical bills and other costs.
Types of Nerve Damage
In car accidents, construction accidents and other serious accidents that result in nerve damage, including compression injuries and severed nerves, injuries to different parts of the spine and spinal cord can result in different types of injuries. These include:
- Upper Cervical Spine – Upper Neck – C1 and C2 Vertebrae: This area of the spine controls the head, face, upper neck, inner and middle ear, sympathetic nerve system, sinuses, eyes, auditory nerves and more
- Cervical Spine – Mid and Lower Neck – C3 through C7 Vertebrae: This area of the spine controls the neck, shoulders, thyroid, tonsils, teeth, outer ear, nose, mouth, vocal cords and more
- Thoracic Spine – Mid Back – T1 through T12 Vertebrae: This area of the spine controls the arms, hands, heart, coronary arteries, esophagus, trachea, lungs, bronchial tubes, gallbladder, liver, stomach, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, ureters, adrenal glands, small intestines and more
- Lumbar Spine – Lower Back: This area of the spine controls the large intestines, appendix, abdomen, bladder and lower extremities.
Wherever your nerve damage occurs, you need to get immediate medical help and legal representation that will protect your rights and your health. Our firm will help prove your injuries in a court of law and get the compensation you need to recover from your injuries.
