The complications of spinal cord injury (SCI) depend both on the location and extent of the damage. Injury to the upper and mid-spine may result in a loss of sensation in the arms, legs, and trunk, while damage to any part of the spine can cause bowel and bladder dysfunction.

Complete SCI may result in paralysis. Incomplete SCI may only cause minor numbness or tingling. Both issues deserve to be reviewed by an experienced personal injury lawyer.

If you have sustained an SCI in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and personal pain and suffering. Call REA Law at 775-300-7594 for a free case review. We maintain offices in Reno, Nevada along with Sacramento and Newport Beach, California.
