The spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the human body's. Running from the base of the skull all the way to the second lumbar vertebra, it is the main form of communication from the brain to the rest of the body. When their spinal cord is compressed, bruised, or severed, a person could lose some or all of their sensation below the damaged area, or even suffer from paralysis.
Spinal cord injuries can have severe consequences on an accident victim and their family. These injuries can affect the injured person's motor skills, as well as their sensation capacity in different areas of their body. While spinal cord injuries are serious enough in themselves, they can also lead to other significant medical issues, such as burns or fractures caused as a result of lack of physical sensation.
Catastrophic injuries such as paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia can result from spinal cord damage. With the gravity of such injuries, it is essential to obtain seasoned personal injury counsel to ensure that the correct legal steps are taken to pursue the maximum financial compensation for these injuries.
Injuries to spinal cords can be caused in auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, acts of violence or other dangerous incidents.
