Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal Cord Injury
Of all the injuries commonly associated with personal injury cases, spinal cord injuries have the potential to be some of the most devastating and disastrous for you or your family. A spinal cord injury can mean paralysis, pain, and possibly death for the victim. After the accident, the family must adjust to the new reality of what it means to live with somebody with spinal cord injuries. The victim may be bed-ridden, wheelchair bound, or in such pain that every day is filled with pain and misery.
Statistically speaking, the most common way people receive spinal cord injuries is in an auto accident. A spinal cord injury happens when the spine receives a sudden blow or impact, resulting in a fractured vertebra. What’s worse, oftentimes, spinal cord injuries are often caused by the fault of another. Many of the symptoms of nerve damage apply with spinal cord injuries, as the spine is simply a bundle of nerves that runs from the base of the brain down the back.
Victims of spinal cord injury may loss the movement of all four limbs, quadriplegia, or the movement of the legs, paraplegia. If you have been in an auto accident, you may have suffered injuries to the spinal cord.
