Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord carries signals and nerve impulses between the brain and the body. When a portion of the spinal cord becomes damaged, the brain can no longer communicate with the various body parts at and below the injury. This results in:
- Loss of mobility
- Loss of sensation
- Muscle spasms
- Complications with urinary and bowel functions
- Sexual dysfunction
Additionally, victims may suffer a substantial loss of income, emotional pain and suffering, and a general lowered quality of life.
Accidents, Violence, and More
Spinal cord injuries can happen in a variety of different types of accidents and other circumstances. The common denominator is negligence, recklessness, or both. Some of the more common causes of these injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Sports accidents, especially in full-contact sports
- Medical errors
- Acts of violence, such as gunshots or knife wounds, as well as physical abuse
Victims of these serious injuries have the right to pursue compensation for their damages from the negligent party.
