Spinal cord injuries vary from case to case with differing consequences depending on the nature and severity of damage to the spine. These types of injuries generally consist of a blow to the spinal cord which may be classified as incomplete or complete. Incomplete spinal cord injuries generally result in a temporary disability, such as pain or a burning sensation, loss of feeling, or loss of function in related areas of the body.
Complete spinal cord injuries typically consist of permanent disability at and below the area of impact manifested by paralysis such as paraplegia or quadriplegia. Those unfortunate enough to sustain such injuries will face staggering medical costs, emotional anguish, loss of independence, loss of earning capacity, and a future requiring various types of personal assistance. According to the Mayo clinic, the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:
In many of these cases, those injuries occur as the result of such behaviors as aggressive action taken against the victim, drunk driving, reckless driving, driving while texting, and other forms of negligence.
A personal injury can occur in a variety of ways, but almost all have the same results in common. Suddenly, your life is disrupted and possibly jeopardized physically, emotionally, and financially by an accident or incident which could have been prevented.
