At Ashby Thelen Lowry, our Georgia spinal cord and paralysis personal injury lawyers know how hard it is to get your life back on track after it has been impacted by negligence.
Whether you or a loved one suffered a spinal cord injury in a vehicle collision, catastrophic fall, or during an act of violence, including a shooting or stabbing because of inadequate security, personal injuries caused by negligence are life changing — and preventable.
The types of disability associated with spinal cord injuries vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury, the segment of the spinal cord where the injury occurs, and which nerve fibers are damaged. They also impact each spinal cord injury and paralysis sufferer differently.

We have earned our clients’ trust with hard work, frequent communication, and expertise.

What are the Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries?
A spinal cord injury can be classified as complete or incomplete.
- An incomplete injury means the spinal cord can transmit some messages to or from the brain allowing the injury victim to retain some sensory function and muscle control activity below the injury site.
- A complete injury means there is no nerve communication and sensory and motor function below the injury site are lost, resulting in paralysis.
Depending on the individual, how the injury occurred, and which part of the spine was impacted, a spinal cord injury can cause one or more of the following symptoms:
- Difficulty breathing.
- Pain or pressure in the head, neck, or back.
- Numbness, tingling, or a loss of or changes in sensation in the hands and feet.
- Weakness or inability to move any part of the body.
- Problems walking.
- Changes in sexual function.
- Loss of movement.
- Loss of bladder and bowel control.
- Unnatural positions of the spine or head.
- Paralysis that may happen immediately or develop over time as swelling and bleeding impact the spinal cord.
We understand that all spinal cord injuries are unique and impact the sufferers in different ways.
