Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries to the spinal cord can have numerous implications to your everyday life. As the spinal cord acts as the principal conduit between your brain and your body, damages to it can result in hindered functionality throughout the rest of your body.
Left untreated, a spinal cord injury could result in a host of long-term complications, including:
- Numbness in the extremities
- Loss of grip strength
- Partial paralysis
- Complete paralysis
- Exaggerated reflexes
- Intense chronic pain
- Inhibited sexual function
- Loss of bladder and/or bowel control
Cervical Fusion Surgery
One of the ways in which spinal cord injury can be avoided following an accident is through a highly complex and expensive surgery called a cervical fusion. This essentially joins selected bones in the neck, and is intended stabilize the neck to prevent a fracture from causing damage to the spinal cord. If you were in an accident that required cervical fusion to prevent serious spinal cord injury, you’ve likely been left with a hefty medical bill for which the responsible party should be held accountable.

I was scared to death after being on the witness stand for several hours. Clint Brasher kept reassuring me but, when we broke the trial for the day and I was offered $100,000.00, I wanted to take it. Clint advised me not to and that we would do better with the jury. While it was hard, I followed his advice. The verdict the next day was for $240,000.00 plus interest. I recommend anyone with a legal problem to call Clint Brasher. He was not only a skillful advocate, he was a friend to me during this difficult time.Edward Arabie
After being told by multiple lawyers that I really had no case or that my chances of being awarded any settlement was very slim, I was referred to the Brasher Law firm. Nishi worked on my case and with very little effort on my part, she put together my case with an opening statement and presentation that put my opponent on their heels. She set a goal from the start and didn’t relent until her goal was met and I got what was owed me. Thank you Nishi for knocking it out of the park!L. Smith
