The Effects of a Spinal Cord Injury
Although it is possible to suffer a
back injury and a spinal cord injury, they do not always occur simultaneously. A spinal
cord injury often affects many parts of the body. Serious spinal cord
injuries result in complete loss of function below the level of the injury.
An incomplete spinal cord injury causes some loss of function below the
injury level, but leaves some functions intact.
Either type of injury is debilitating and may cause one or more of the
following related conditions:
- Chronic pain
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Brain injury
- Respiratory problems
- Pressure sores
Among the most common causes of spinal cord injuries are
motorcycle accidents, and
falls. People who work in certain industries, such as construction, are at increased
risk for spinal injuries.
What to Do if You Suspect a Spinal Injury
Spinal cord injuries require specialized medical treatment and long-term
care. Do not hesitate to seek treatment, even if the expense is enormous.
An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you recover compensation
that may cover medical costs as well as lost income if you are unable
to return to work.
