Spinal cord injuries are one of the most painful injuries a person can get. The effects of these traumatic injuries can often follow a person for the rest of their life. Often what seems like a minor accident can result in major trauma to your spine and might cause you great pain for an unknown amount of time. But what are the main causes of spinal cord injuries? Over two million car accidents result in a permanent spinal cord injury. The other most common cause of these injuries is slip and fall accidents. These are serious injuries. Some of them may even result in paralysis, but even if not, the injury can change a person’s life for the worst.
The effects of your injury can vary greatly depending on where and how your spinal cord injury occurred. For example, if you experienced extreme trauma to your neck, this may result in a more serious injury. Upper spinal injuries may even result in the person becoming a quadriplegic. No longer being able to use your arms is a terrifying thought. A person may also experience loss in bladder control. Sometimes these effects may just be temporary, but often a person struggles with these injuries for the rest of their life. If a person experiences extreme trauma to their lower spine, this could result in paraplegia, leaving the victim wheelchair-bound. If you are a victim of a spinal cord injury due to the negligence of someone else, you should seek legal representation. These injuries are serious and you deserve the proper compensation for the damages you have suffered.
