Spinal Cord Injuries
Thousands of people suffer spinal cord injuries each year in the United States. Injury to the spinal cord, which consists of a bundle of nerves that runs from the base of the brain down the back, can result in chronic pain and loss of sensation. Some spinal cord injuries can lead to permanent loss of movement, including paralysis of all four limbs, known as quadriplegia, or paralysis of the lower half of the body, known as paraplegia. In some cases, a spinal cord injury can lead to death.
Spinal cord injuries are generally caused by trauma. Typically, a sudden blow or impact to the spine fractures or dislocates vertebrae. Most spinal cord injuries occur in automobile accidents, however, falls, intentional violence and sports also account for a large number of spinal cord injuries.
In many cases, the spinal cord injury is caused by the negligence of another, whether the driver of a car or truck, or the manufacturer of a defective product. When someone suffers a spinal cord injury because of negligence, the victim may have a legal claim.
