Anyone who has suffered from back or neck pain from sitting at a desk too long, playing sports, or sleeping in the wrong position can tell you how much even a small muscle strain or pinched nerve can impact movement and activities. Spinal cord injuries, which affect the bundle of nerves running from the brain stem at the base of the skull to the bottom of the spinal column, can be debilitating.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated 250,000 to 500,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries annually(opens in a new tab), often due to preventable causes. This can lead to extensive recovery times, and oftentimes, a lifelong disability. Unfortunately, those who suffer from a spinal cord injury are two to five times more likely to die prematurely than those who have never had a spinal cord injury.

In the meantime, such injuries can have a marked impact on your life, limiting your ability to work and earn a living, forcing you to depend on caregivers, or in some cases, making it more difficult to socialize and maintain relationships.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

While spinal cord injuries can be caused by illnesses like arthritis, osteoporosis, and even cancer, they are more often related to traumatic incidents. There are several common causes(opens in a new tab) for spinal cord injuries, which include:

When you suffer from a spinal cord injury, regardless of the cause, it can upend your entire life. The last thing you need is the hassle of fighting insurance companies that are intent on delaying or denying your claim until you accept a fraction of what you deserve or give up completely.

Whether your injury requires significant rehabilitation or you suffer from a permanent disability, you have a long health battle ahead of you. You need a capable and compassionate spinal cord injury attorney to fight for a fair settlement on your behalf so that you can focus on recovery.

The Ruth Law Team will represent you and your best interests. We’ll leverage our considerable expertise in an effort to secure the maximum compensation possible for your injuries.

A serious spinal cord injury can leave you with complete sensory and motor function loss below the injury site, or incomplete loss, in which some feeling and movement remain. You could suffer paraplegia – paralysis of the legs and lower portion of the trunk – or quadriplegia, which is paralysis of the body below the neck.

Spinal cord injury can cause a loss of sensation and movement, but it can also affect the function of internal organs and lead to chronic pain. It can even increase risk factors for secondary conditions like infections, respiratory complications, deep vein thrombosis (DVT), muscle spasms, osteoporosis, and more. Sadly, such injuries are often preventable.
