Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries
Serious accidents of almost any kind can result in a catastrophic spinal injury. The spinal cord houses most of the body’s central nervous system and can therefore cause severe and permanent damage if injured. Bruising or partial severance of the spinal cord could result in temporary or permanent partial paralysis. If the spinal cord is severely or completely severed, permanent total paralysis is highly probable. This means that you could lose some or all of your feeling and motor function below the area of injury.
How Spinal Cord Injuries Can Happen
The spinal cord is usually injured in accidents that involve some form of impact. Many of these injuries are the result of a slip and fall accident from a high place, diving accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, and many other types of incidents.
