Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury can be caused by any impact to the spine, or even excess contortion of it. Though the vertebrae that protect the spinal column are very durable, even slight injuries to the spinal column can have serious consequences. Symptoms of these injuries include:
- Numbness or tingling in the extremities
- Paralysis, especially below the site of the injury
- Loss of motor control
- Weakness or pain
- Loss of bladder control
Spinal cord injuries are common in car accidents, occurring in nearly 70 percent of crashes according to National Highway Safety Administration statistics. They can also happen while playing sports or as the result of a fall. An injury to the spinal cord can permanently affect a person’s mobility and ability to work, and nearly always results in large medical bills. However, many times these injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence, and victims may be entitled to compensation for the financial, emotional, and psychological hardships they are forced to face.
