Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the damage to the spine is so severe that the injured person experiences the loss of physical movement or sensation. There are at least 11,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries in the United States each year. Many of these SCIs are caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, pedestrian accidents, sports-related accidents, and other kinds of personal injury accidents.

Common Kinds of Spinal Cord Injuries
Common kinds of spinal cord injuries include contusion (spinal bruising), compression (pressure on the spine), spinal fractures, a broken back, a herniated disk, paralysis, a fractured vertebra, quadriplegia, paraplegia, loss of ability to function sexually, loss of bladder control, and loss of bowel control. Respiratory problems, bedsores, severe depression, and emotional trauma are just some of the effects that can result from a spinal cord injury. Common tasks, such as getting out of bed or walking across the room can become extremely painful—even impossible—when you have a spinal cord injury. It can be especially traumatic to have your injury occur in an accident that was someone else’s fault.
Recovery from a spinal cord injury can be long and costly. While many people with a spinal injury can recover after a period of proper treatment and therapy, there are those who will never recover, are forever confined to a wheelchair or bed, and whose medical care is for life. A good personal injury law firm that understands the nature of spinal cord injuries and the complexities of SCI cases can help you demand the maximum recovery possible from any liable parties so that you can afford to get the care that you need.
