What Is a Spinal Cord Injury?
A spinal cord injury is a type of catastrophic injury that results from a traumatic event. This type of injury occurs when a person's spine sustains damage, which can lead to paralysis, numbness, loss of sensation, and other symptoms. These injuries are often severe and life-changing, and they frequently require extensive medical care and rehabilitation.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are usually the result of a traumatic accident such as a:
- Car accident
- Truck accident
- Motorcycle crash
- Pedestrian accident
- Diving or swimming accident
- Accident with a defective product
A spinal cord injury may also be the result of a non-accidental injury such as a:
- Gunshot wound
- Blunt force trauma
- Sharp force trauma
- Child abuse
Symptoms of a Spinal Cord Injury
Because the spinal cord is so crucial to the body's functions and ability to move, a spinal cord injury can cause a wide range of symptoms. The extent of these symptoms will depend on the severity of the injury and the part of the spinal cord that was damaged. The most common symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:
- Weakness or loss of muscle function
- Numbness or loss of sensation
- Difficulty breathing
- Bladder or bowel control issues
- Sexual dysfunction
- Changes in body temperature
If you or someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, you may be entitled to compensation. At Crawford Law, we know how to effectively advocate for our clients and can help you get the justice you deserve.
