Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys in Cleveland Help Injured Adults and Children Recover Compensation and Maximize their Potential
Protecting the future of Ohio adults and children suffering from brain or spinal cord injuries due to negligence
The central nervous system consists of two major structures, the brain and the spinal cord. The brain is seated within and protected by the skull. The spinal cord is continuous with the brain and runs from the base of the brain to roughly the level of the lower back. It is protected by the spine. If your child has been injured as a result of negligence by a physician, nurse or other healthcare worker, trust the attorneys at The Eisen Law Firm in Cleveland. We can help you recover the compensation you need to provide a lifetime of care for your injured child.
Functions of the nervous system and how they can be affected by medical negligence
The brain integrates most sensory information and coordinates movement, both consciously and unconsciously. Complex functions such as thinking and feeling, as well as regulation of breathing and temperature, also are attributable to parts of the brain. The spinal cord carries signals between the brain and the rest of the body. It is like a messenger, delivering the brain’s movement commands to the muscles and bringing back to the brain information about what the body is experiencing in the world.
Injuries to the brain or spinal cord can affect everything from movement and sensation to thinking and feeling. Permanent brain and spinal cord injuries – whether or not caused by medical negligence — typically are the most devastating injuries one can suffer.
