Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord is one of the most critical parts of the body, allowing the brain to communicate with the rest of the body. It is protected by muscle, bone, cartilage, and fluid. Despite this protection, it’s still quite vulnerable in accidents.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center reports that vehicle crashes are the leading cause of spinal injuries in the United States.
However, falls from heights and injuries during recreational activities are also common. In any given year, there are roughly 12,500 spinal cord injuries in the United States.
Violent movements, like in a car accident, can cause vertebral bones in the spine or discs cushioning those bones to move, putting pressure on the spinal cord and in other nerve roots.
In some cases, the spinal cord could be completely severed, causing tremendous damage.
Impact of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can result in a variety of associated damages, including:
- Pain, weakness, or loss of feelings in the hands or legs depending on the injury area;
- Loss of sensation, including ability to feel heat, cold, or touch;
- Incontinence, erectile dysfunction, and other bowel conditions;
- Changes in fertility or sexual function; and
- Difficulty breathing.
This list is not exhaustive. Spinal cord injuries can rob individuals of most of their feeling, ability to control parts of their body, and even result in death.
A victim of paraplegia or another serious condition as a result of an injury can expect to incur more than a significant amount of medical expenses in the first year of surgery and treatment, and paying can be a lasting problem. This makes fair compensation of crucial importance, so as to best maintain your quality of life.
