Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
Spinal cord injuries can result from a wide variety of accidents, including:
- Car and truck accidents: The tremendous force involved in a car or truck accident can gravely injure the spinal cord. Car and truck accidents are the cause of thousands of spinal cord injuries annually, leaving accident victims across American with loss of motor functions, feeling, and other complications.
- Falls: Any fall has the potential to lead to spinal cord injuries. Falls from heights are most likely to inflict serious injuries, such as paralysis. Falls commonly occur in the workplace, on sidewalks, in stores, nursing homes, hotels, and the other areas where hazards are present. Today, older Americans are some of the most likely people to injure their spines in falls.
- Sports injuries: Sports players, including youth, recreational, and professional players are all prone to spinal cord injuries and paralysis. Sports team organizers and leaders should take steps to prevent hard hits and falls that could cause serious injury.
- Acts of violence: Assaults, batteries, and gunshot wounds are all common causes of spinal cord injuries. If you have sustained a spinal cord injury due to an act of violence, you may have a cause of action against the perpetrator or the property owner under the theory of negligent security.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury is defined as damage to any part of the spinal cord. Injury sufferers can experience loss of sensation, loss of movement, numbness, tingling, impaired breathing, and more, depending on the location and severity of the injury.
