About Spinal Cord Injuries
A Spinal Cord Injury is often a life altering event. This type of injury can have lasting effects, from lifelong pain and discomfort to paralysis. Because the effects of a SCI can be so severe, you need an experienced Long Beach Personal Injury Attorney on your side to increase the chances of receiving full and fair compensation. With over 11,000 cases each year in the U.S there are a wide variety of instances in which a spinal injury can occur, and many times someone else is to blame. This is often the case in
motor vehicle accidents,
job site injuries from
falls or defective equipment, accidents involving firearms, mistakes during medical procedures,
accidents on unsafe property, and sometimes even violence.
Unlike other back injuries, damage to the spinal cord can permanently affect all parts of your body. The bundle of nerves that make up the spinal cord transports messages from the brain to every part of the body, therefore an injury to the cord can cause the loss of full or partial movement and sensation in some or all of your limbs. In addition to the loss of function in your extremities, there is also the possibility of bladder and bowel complications, problems breathing, and sexual dysfunction.
