Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries a person can suffer. The spinal cord is responsible for transmitting messages from the brain to the rest of the body -- when it is damaged, the victim may lose their ability to move or feel sensations below the site of the injury. In some cases, the victim may be paralyzed from the neck down, a condition known as quadriplegia.
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by a variety of accidents, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and falls. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. At Pritchard Injury Firm, we are committed to helping victims of spinal cord injuries recover the full, fair compensation they are owed.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be classified as either complete or incomplete. A complete spinal cord injury is one in which the victim loses all ability to move and feel sensation below the site of the injury. An incomplete spinal cord injury is when the victim retains some ability to move and feel sensation below the site of the injury.
Spinal cord injuries can also be classified as either traumatic or non-traumatic. A traumatic spinal cord injury is when the spinal cord is damaged by a sudden blow to the spine that fractures, dislocates, crushes, or compresses one or more of the vertebrae. A non-traumatic spinal cord injury is one in which the spinal cord is damaged by a disease or condition, such as cancer, arthritis, or an infection.
Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can be caused by a variety of accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
Spinal cord injuries can also be caused by medical malpractice. For example, a spinal cord injury can occur if a surgeon makes an error during a spinal surgery. A spinal cord injury can also occur if a doctor fails to diagnose and treat a condition that is causing the spinal cord to become compressed, such as a tumor or an infection.
