A damaged spinal cord often results in paralysis. At its worst, spinal cord damage threatens autonomic functions, including use of the bladder and bowel, and even breathing.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Damage
The most common cause of damage to the spinal cord damage is trauma, a violent blow. Spinal trauma is a common occurrence in:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle crashes
- Truck crashes
- On-the-job accidents
- Accidents on ships and vessels
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Back injuries are among the most common, most painful and most expensive of all medical ailments. Because the back supports the entire body, a damaged spine can end many of the activities you enjoy doing and need to do to be self-sufficient.
When spinal injuries occur because of the negligence of others, you are entitled to compensation, which should include lost pay, diminished ability to earn a living, medical and rehabilitation expenses.
