Spinal Cord Injuries
Catastrophic Accidents & Spinal Cord Damage
Among the most serious types of accidents are those in which the spinal
cord is damaged. The spinal cord is an extremely integral aspect to the
structure of the entire human body. An injury in the wrong place can mean
debilitating injuries that change the victim's way of life forever.
Whether direct or indirect impact caused the injury, an accident that
is serious enough will actually cause part of the spinal cord to fracture.
These fractured portions of the spinal cord can become lodged in the back
and cause nerve damage. The upper region of the spinal cord, the neck,
can very easily become injured in car accidents, for example. A spinal
cord injury that causes damage to the muscles and nerves can leave a person
without the ability to move their limbs in some cases.
All spinal cord injuries are classified by severity on a scale of A to
E. Being a complete injury, A is the most severe. An E injury can have
little to no effect on the individuals physical capabilities. Those who
sustain these catastrophic injuries run the risk of symptoms such as incontinence,
loss of muscle function, degeneration of the bones, and partial or complete
paralysis below the injured area. Since the spine is divided into three
major sections (cervical, thoracic and lumbosacral) injuries will differ
depending on the area of trauma. If your spinal cord was injured in an
accident and you were left with debilitating injuries, please seek professional
legal help immediately.
