Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries
In general, a spinal cord injury will either result in complete or partial paralysis and impairment. The severity of impairment will depend largely on the location of the spinal cord injury and the severity of the injury. If an accident victim loses the ability to control any part of their body below the injury, then they have suffered from complete paralysis. Nearly 50% of all spinal cord injuries are complete. If the spinal cord isn’t completely severed, then there may still be some movement and sensation below the injury. This is known as partial paralysis.
The location of the injury will determine the amount of impairment across the body. Injuries to the lower portion of the spinal cord will result in loss of movement in the legs, hips, and feet, as well as loss of bowel and bladder function. Injuries to the upper portion of the spinal cord will result in loss of movement in the torso, arms, legs, and feet, as well as the loss of breathing functions.

I don’t know where I would be without the Law Offices of Robert Paysinger. It was a very emotional experience, and I feel as if I owe Mr. Paysinger my life! The other lawyers would promise everything, but it was only here that I felt his integrity and willingness to live up to his word. He and the paralegals were so incredibly helpful throughout the strenuous process of my case. Going through a lawsuit is an emotional roller coaster, but whenever I was confused they would sit and explain everything in terms that I could understand. They provided an emotional support and treated me like family. It’s never about the money there, but about you, if you are upset they will do everything to help you, and work extremely hard for you. They are extremely honest and straight forward. I would recommend Mr. Paysinger to everyone, because they truly and genuinely care about you.

Thanks, Robert, for all the help with my accidents (both of them). You always promptly returned my calls and were extremely helpful whenever I had questions.
