Spinal cord injuries are among the most permanently debilitating injuries that a person can suffer. A partial tear will render a victim paraplegic with the loss of sensation in the legs and the loss of movement of them. A complete tear will render a victim quadriplegic (tetraplegic) without sensation in or the use of all four limbs. Most of these types of injuries are traumatically induced when a sudden blow to the spine fractures, dislocates or crushes one or more vertebrae. According to the personal injury attorneys Sacramento at Travis G. Black & Associates, here are some of the common causes of spinal cord injuries:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Falls from heights, trip-and-falls and slip-and-falls
- Industrial and construction accidents
- Sports injuries and recreational accidents like diving accidents
- Medical errors
- Falling objects
Nearly all spinal cord injuries will require long-term care, treatment and rehabilitation.
