Understanding Spine Injuries

Damage to the spinal cord can result in loss of mobility and loss of feeling below the injured area. The spinal cord is a network that transmits sensation and controls movement throughout the body. In some cases, these injuries are so severe that they result in death. It is essential to pursue legal action against the liable party to obtain the compensation that you deserve after suffering a traumatic injury of this kind.

Many spinal cord injuries occur as the result of motor vehicle accidents. Various other types of accidents, however, can also result in spine injuries, including:

If the spinal injury occurs at the neck level, the victim's breathing may be impaired and his or her arms, legs, and trunk can be paralyzed; this state of impairment is considered quadriplegia. If the injury occurs lower in the spine, it may cause weakness and loss of movement in the legs and other parts of the body, which is called paraplegia.
