Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are often the result of traumatic accidents and violent incidents.
Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
Regardless of the type of accident that occurred, if it was the result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent behavior, you have the right to seek compensation for your damages by filing a personal injury claim. A claim can allow you to recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost income/wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses that resulted from the accident/injury.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Just as there are many causes of spinal cord injuries, there are a number of different types of spinal cord injuries. The nature and severity of the injury will depend on the various factors involved in the accident, as well as the location of the injury.
Some of the most common types of spinal cord injuries include:
- Herniated (slipped) discs
- Paraplegia (paralysis of the legs/lower half)
- Tetraplegia/paraplegia (paralysis of the arms and legs/below the neck)
- Lumbar (lower) spinal cord injuries
- Anterior cord syndrome
- Brown-Sequard syndrome
In general, spinal cord injuries are categorized as either complete or incomplete. In a complete spinal cord injury, all sensation and movement are lost below the point of injury; with an incomplete spinal cord injury, some sensation and functioning are retained.
Were Your Injuries the Result of Someone Else’s Negligence?
While some accidents are truly blameless, many are preventable. If you sustained a spinal cord injury in a motor vehicle accident caused by a distracted driver, slipped and fell due to unsafe property conditions, injured your spine after falling from unsafe scaffolding on a construction site, or were otherwise harmed as a result of someone else’s negligence, you can file a catastrophic injury claim and seek compensation for your damages. Our firm can help.
