Leading causes of spinal injuries
A traumatic spinal injury happens as a result of a sudden blow to the spine that crushes, compresses, or fractures the vertebrae, spinal column disks, or the spinal cord. While car accidents and falls are listed as the leading causes of spinal injuries, there are a variety of situations that cause spinal cord injuries including:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle crashes
- Contact sports such as football
- Recreational activities such as water skiing and jet skiing
- Acts of violence – such as gunshot and knife wounds
- Medical malpractice – such as a botched surgery
- Workplace accidents – slip, fall or crush accidents
You deserve full compensation for all losses related to your traumatic injuries, including emotional pain and suffering. Our Minot North Dakota injury attorneys are your staunchest allies and always negotiate on your behalf to get you the fair legal settlement you deserve.
Spinal cord injuries cause permanent health issues
A spinal injury causes damage to the spinal cord, the bundle of nerves that run from the brain through the spine, and results in full or partial loss of sensation and movement in the body. With minor spinal injuries, surgery and rehabilitation helps patient regain their mobility. However, with traumatic injuries the spinal cord is permanently damaged and cannot be surgically repaired.
Because the spinal cord sends messages between the brain and the rest of the body, when the spine is damaged other parts of the body do not function properly. Often, victims suffer from the following long-term health issues that drastically affect their quality of life:
- Inability to walk or move limbs
- Loss of feeling
- Nerve damage
- Muscle weakness
- Numbness and tingling
- Sexual dysfunction
- Breathing and respiratory problems
- Loss of bowel and bladder control
- Body temperature issues
- Blood clots
- Pressure sores
- Spastic muscles
