About Spinal Cord Injuries
While there are many different types of catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries are often the most devastating. As the human spine plays such an essential role in the body’s ability to move, injuries to the spine – as well as to the neck or back – can be life-changing.
Commonly the result of sudden trauma or impact, spinal cord injuries can be caused by many different types of accidents, including:
- Car accidents and auto accidents
- Birth injuries
- Assaults and criminal violence
- Work-related injuries
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
Regardless of the type of accident that occurred, injuries to the neck, back, and spinal cord are commonly severe. Although damages can vary in severity, victims who suffer spinal cord damage often suffer long-term consequences. In the most serious cases, victims may also suffer paralysis or the loss of muscle function. Paralysis can also range in severity, with the most serious being paraplegia and quadriplegia. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 23% of reported paralysis injuries in the United States are caused by spinal cord injuries.
Recovering Compensation Injured Victims Deserve
One of the most notable aspects of spinal cord injuries – as with many other types of catastrophic injuries – is that they can be incredibly costly. Victims and families will often endure tremendous financial pressures as medical bills pile up. As most spinal cord injury victims require at least some time away from work – if not permanent disability – the pressures caused by lost work wages can intensify these burdens. When these burdens are created by another’s negligence, victims have every right to hold the at-fault party liable for their damages.
