Spinal cord injuries are among the most traumatic personal health events that one can suffer. Harm to the spinal cord often results in permanent paralysis, which can include total loss of functioning in the arms, legs, and other essential areas. Following a spinal cord injury, many victims are confined to wheelchairs. They may need assistance performing basic daily tasks and require permanent care. Damage to the spinal cord is undeniably catastrophic, and to make matters worse, such injuries are often a consequence of gross negligence.
In some cases, spinal cord injuries occur due to accidents that take place in unsafe work environments. Motor accidents are another primary cause of spinal cord injuries. In other instances, medical malpractice is at the root of spinal cord trauma. In these circumstances, the injury should have been avoided through adequate medical attention, or it actually results from errors in surgery or other procedures.
