A spinal cord injury is an injury in which a serious external force, as opposed to a disesase, damages the spinal cord. A minor spinal cord injury can just result in pain, but more serious ones can result in paralysis and even death. Spinal cord injuries that are relatively mild are called “incomplete,” while the injuries that causes total loss of function are referred to as “complete.” It is estimated that 11,000 spinal cord injuries occur each year.
There are many causes for spinal cord injuries in the United States. The most common cause of these injuries is, by far, car accidents and other kinds of vehicle accidents, such as trucking accidents, bicycle accidents, and public transit accidents. Gunshot wounds often have the potential to cause serious spinal injuries. Ultimately, spinal cord injuries can take place in virtually any area in which injuries take place, such as:
- Swimming Pool Accidents
- Workplace Injury
- Assault & Battery
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Construction Injury
- Agricultural Injury
- Defective Products
For example, if an automobile had defective parts that resulted in the spinal cord injury, you would be able to file a lawsuit against the auto manufacturer or the auto part manufacturer. If you have sustained a spinal cord injury as a result of negligence at a pool, you can hold the owner of the pool responsible for that injury.
