There is no cure for a spinal cord injury. But spinal cord injury survivors may recover some motor function in the months after the injury. A bruise to the spinal cord may cause temporary loss of function. A partial or complete severing of the spinal cord causes permanent loss of function. As swelling from the injury subsides, a person with an incomplete spinal cord injury may regain some function for up to 18 months after the injury. Spinal cord injury survivors require extensive rehabilitation and have ongoing needs. You will need all the financial resources available to cover your ongoing medical expenses. If your injury was caused by someone else’s disregard for safety, an attorney at Herrman & Herrman can help you pursue full compensation for your medical bills, rehabilitation and related expenses.
