Central Cord Syndrome

The spinal cord is essential to normal human function in almost every area of life. It is a center of nerves connected directly to the brain which plays a great role in mobility and sensation. The body protects the spinal cord naturally in its evolutionary construction. Still, sometimes things happen which do cause the central cord to be damaged, and the results of such things are often irreversible and life-changing. Damage to the spinal cord is never a good thing because of its significance in motor function and feeling, and if anything is altered any number of symptoms which dramatically change a person’s way of life may play out.

Central cord syndrome – the umbrella term for the condition suffered in cases of direct spinal cord damage – usually causes motor impairments to the body’s upper extremities and issues with certain elements of the lower body, including bladder control. While CCS does not present the same catastrophes presented by absolute lesions on the cord, changes in control over things like the fingers or the bladder alter a person’s quality of life to an inordinate degree. People with central cord syndrome often developed it because of an accident which caused a vertebra to spear into the cord, though other invasive objects or major impacts can also cause CCS. Regardless of the anatomical reason for the syndrome, it forces those who develop it to have their lives changed indefinitely. The North Carolina and South Carolina personal injury attorneys at Grimes Teich Anderson may be able to help you if you suffer central cord syndrome.

If someone else caused the accident which led to your developing CCS, that person(s) may be responsible for compensating you for your damages and may be required by law to pay for your medical expenses or any other costs you incur as a result of the damage to your spinal cord.

Insurance providers, regardless of the party they represent in your CCS case, may be less than thrilled about paying the costs that come with this debilitating long-term disease. The insurance company representing those who may be responsible for your central cord syndrome are likely to fight harder to avoid paying the total costs you need for coverage of your expenses.

Our experienced lawyers at Grimes Teich Anderson, LLP, know the law when it comes to long-term illnesses and the great expense that can accompany that: illnesses like central cord syndrome. Don’t try to face the insurance company alone. They work for their clients, not you. You need a lawyer to represent your interests and protect your rights.
