Spinal Cord Injuries are Devastating
Problems related to a spinal cord injury can have effects not only on the person’s health, but also on their ability to earn a living, to perform everyday tasks, and to be independent in their lives. This can have an extremely stressful financial and emotional toll on the injured person and their family.
What is a Spinal Cord Injury?
The spinal cord is made up of bundles of nerves that control your body’s sensation and movement. When a spinal cord injury occurs, there can be a loss of sensation and function that result in paralysis, quadriplegia, or paraplegia. Spinal cord injuries can cause problems with bowel and bladder control and can lead to significant health problems.
What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
Injuries to the spinal cord are usually caused by trauma. Close to half of spinal cord injuries are caused by auto accidents, but falls are another major cause. During an accident or fall, there is a sudden blow or impact to the spine that causes injury. In situations where a spinal cord injury is caused by negligence the injured person may have a legal claim.
