Understanding Spinal Cord-Related Legal Issues

Spinal cord injuries are extremely serious injuries that are caused by damages to the spinal column, vertebrae, discs, and/or ligaments of the spinal column. Spinal cord injuries are considered either traumatic or non-traumatic.

Traumatic spinal cord injuries are typically the result of a traumatic and sudden blow to the spine that results in the fracture, crushing, dislocation, or compression of one or more parts of the vertebrae. Traumatic spinal cord injuries can also be caused by the entry of a foreign object, such as a weapon, into one of the regions of the spinal cord.

In contrast, non-traumatic spinal cord injuries may be the result of an underlying medical issue such as cancer, disk degeneration, inflammation or infections.

The most common types of accidents or other occurrences that can give rise to a spinal cord injury include:

  • Slips and falls: Those over the age of 65 who suffer from spinal cord injuries have typically sustained their injury as a result of a fall. Each year, slip and fall accidents account for over 25 percent of spinal cord injuries.
  • Motor vehicle accidents: Automotive and motorcycle accidents are the main cause of spinal cord injuries, resulting in over 35 percent of spinal cord injuries that occur each year.
  • Violence: Spinal injuries caused by knife wounds and gunshots account for almost 15 percent of all spinal cord injuries.
  • Sports and recreation: High impact sports, such as football and other recreational activities, account for around 9 percent of spinal cord injuries that occur each year.

Suffering a spinal cord injury can be a life-altering event that often results in either paraplegia, which is paralysis of the legs and the entire lower half of the body, or quadriplegia, which is paralysis from the neck down, encompassing both the arms and legs. Such serious health consequences typically result in permanent disability, preventing the sufferer from ever being able to work again. Furthermore, the medical costs associated with treating a spinal cord injury are astronomical. Because of this, if you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury, it is in your best interest to speak to an attorney immediately.
