Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is defined by damage to the spine so severe that the injured person loses physical sensation or range of movement. Every year, there are at least 11,000 new cases of these sorts of injuries in the United States. Many are caused by personal injury accidents, including sports-related accidents, slips and falls, pedestrian accidents, car accidents, and motorcycle accidents.

Common Kinds of Spinal Cord Injuries
Common kinds of injuries to the spinal cord include contusion, which is spinal bruising, compression, which is pressure on the spine, or spinal fractures. Other common spinal cord injuries include a broken back, herniated disks, broken vertebra or vertebrae, quadri- or paraplegia, the loss of sexual functioning, loss of bladder control and the loss of bowel control. Side effects of a spinal cord injury include respiratory problems, severe depression, bed sores or pressure ulcers and emotional trauma. Things that were once common and easy, like getting out of bed or even walking across a room, can become extremely difficult and painful or 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.
Recovering from an injury to the spinal cord can take a long time and cost a substantial amount. Many people can recover with treatment and therapy, but some may never recover and remain forever confined to a wheelchair or bed. This may require lifelong medical care, which can become extremely expensive over time. A personal injury law firm that understands the severity and danger of spinal cord injuries can help get you the maximum amount of recovery compensation from any liable parties, ensuring you'll be able to afford the care you need.
