Complications of Spinal Cord Injuries
The effects of a spinal cord injury vary widely from victim to victim, often depending on the location of the injury on the spinal cord, the type of trauma that occurred, and whether the injury was complete or incomplete. Almost every spinal cord injury victim requires emergency treatment so medical professionals can stabilize the spinal cord and try to avoid any future damage. Additionally, many spinal cord injuries require surgery to repair the damage to the vertebrae or cord.
Many spinal cord victims suffer temporary or permanent paraplegia or quadriplegia. While some victims may regain partial or total movement and sensation in the limbs, some victims may never recover, may lose their ability to work, and may require home healthcare and other assistance for the rest of their lives.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries may happen in a number of different ways, many of which involve the negligence of another party. Some common incidents that cause spinal injuries include the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Falls from heights
- Workplace accidents
Many of the above incidents occur because another party acted in a negligent manner. Anyone who suffers a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence deserves to receive full compensation for all their injury-related losses.
