Disability benefits for spinal cord disorders

There is no such thing as a good injury but North Carolina residents may be aware that damage sustained to certain parts of their bodies may result in more significant impairments than harm endured to other body parts. For example, a person who suffers a shoulder injury may find that they have difficulty moving their arm or performing lifting duties; a person who suffers a spinal cord injury, however, may lose complete function of their arms and even their legs depending upon the severity and location of their wound.

Spinal cord injuries are serious because they involve damage to the nerves that send messages from a person's brain throughout their entire body. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs through a person's body and that, if damaged, can stop sending messages below the site of the injury. If a person suffers a complete spinal cord injury then they will not have sensations below the site of their harm; if they suffer an incomplete spinal cord injury then they may have limited mobility or sensation below their injury location.

Disability benefits may be available to victims of spinal cord injuries. As with other medical conditions, the nature and severity of a person's spinal cord injury will be assessed to ensure that it meets the definition of a disability according to the Social Security Administration.

A spinal cord injury may keep a person from standing, walking and doing other normal life activities. When they are limited by their ailments they may wish to discuss their disability benefits' options with attorneys who understand the law and support men and women who cannot work due to their injuries.
