Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

A spinal cord injury can result from any situation in which the back and spine are subjected to intense pressure, causing the spinal cord to be bent and crushed. Injury can also occur if the spinal cord is cut or pierced.

Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injury include:

Effects of Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are extremely painful, debilitating conditions that can severely impact a person’s mobility, organ function, and more. Paralysis is one of the most significant risks of sustaining a spinal cord injury. Even if paralysis does not occur, a person’s mobility can be significantly impacted. Additional issues may include muscle spasms, stiffness, weakness, and coordination issues.

Damage to the spinal cord and connected nerves can also impact a person’s sensory abilities and the organs which rely on those nerves to work properly. Body systems such as the urinary system may be harmed by a spinal cord injury.

Spinal Cord Injury Treatment

A person who has sustained a spinal cord injury may require many different kinds of treatment to manage their condition. Surgery, therapy, medication, and the use of medical devices may be involved in spinal cord injury treatment. Spinal cord injuries can also leave people with limited mobility or paralysis, necessitating acute in-home care. Regardless of the type of treatment a person needs to treat their spinal cord injury, medical bills are costly. Through a legal claim, it is possible to recover compensation for the medical bills you have already paid as well as coverage for anticipated future expenses.

Additional financial damages resulting from a spinal cord injury may include lost wages, travel expenses, and more. An injury claim can provide compensation for these costs, and potentially serve as a source of income replacement while you are not able to work.

A spinal cord injury victim may have sustained significant non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering, as well. It may be possible to recover compensation for any of these damages by filing a spinal cord injury claim.
