Loss of physical movement or sensation is the most common result of a spinal cord injury or SCI. This occurs when the damage to the spine is so severe that the victim is completely unable to move the body. There are at least 11,000 new instances of spinal cord injuries in the United States each year. Many of these SCIs are the result of auto accidents, motorcycle crashes, slip and fall accidents, pedestrian accidents, sports-related accidents, and various other personal injuries.
Common Types of Spinal Cord Injuries:
- Contusion (spinal bruising)
- Compression (pressure on the spine)
- Spinal fractures
- Broken back
- Herniated disk
- Fractured vertebra
- Loss of sexual function or ability
- Loss of bladder and/or bowel control
In addition to the above, respiratory problems, bedsores, severe depression, and emotional trauma are just some of the consequences related to a spinal cord injury.
When you have a spinal injury, common tasks, such as getting out of bed or walking across the room can become tremendously painful, even impossible. And when the spinal cord incident happened as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is often paired with a sense of frustration, injustice or rage.
The recovery process from a spinal cord injury can be long and expensive. While many people with a spinal injury can recuperate after a period of medical treatment and physical therapy, there are the unfortunate cases of individuals who will never recover. Forever confined to a wheelchair or bed, their medical care must go on for a lifetime.
A respectable Chicago spinal cord injury lawyer that understands the nature of these injuries and the complexities of SCI cases can help you collect the maximum recovery possible from any answerable parties so that you can afford the essential care that you need.
