Spinal cord injuries touch many areas of personal injury law due to the many causes of spinal cord injuries. For example, spinal cord injuries can be caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and workplace accidents, to name a few. These injuries should not be treated like other personal injuries, however. Because of the many causes and separate injures involved with spinal cord injuries, you should hire an attorney experienced with spinal cord injuries to ensure the best care and compensation.
The Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are among the most painful, damaging, and permanent. The spinal cord is a vital part of the central nervous system, which is one of the most important parts of the body. According to the Mayo Clinic, damage to the spinal cord can affect nearly all parts of the body, including:
- Nerve fibers
- Mobility — paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia are common
- Bladder and bowel control
- Sexual function
In addition to the pain and injuries caused by the direct impact from accidents, improper medical treatment and rehabilitation can also be devastating.
