The spinal cord consists of a network connecting the brain to the system
of nerves throughout the body, controlling movement and feeling. When
the spinal cord is injured, it can be debilitating. The central functionality
of the spinal cord means damage to the area can negatively affect various
muscles and organs. The level of harm caused by a spinal cord injury results
in costly medical bills, as well as debt accrued due to an inability to work.
Speak with a Philadelphia personal injury lawyer to discuss the details
of your case and review potential courses of action.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries and Symptoms
A spinal cord injury can damage tendons and discs. This can range from
strains and bruising to fractures. In the most serious spinal cord injury
cases, victims can lose organ function or become paralyzed. Depending
on the affected nerves, sensation in skin or pain receptors may be decreased.
Pain or numbness in the head, neck, or back is the most common symptom
of a spinal cord injury. Impaired balance is another sign. If the spinal
cord injury has affected the function of any organs, associated symptoms
will occur, such as difficulty breathing if the respiratory system has
Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are caused by high-impact shock to the neck and back
area. Common events that can result in damage to the spinal cord are
car accidents and
motorcycle accidents, but also falls, birth injuries, trauma to the neck/back while playing
sports, and work-related accidents.
A spinal cord injury may be a direct result of the oversight of another
person or organization. In these cases, the other party may be held legally
responsible for medical costs and other damages.
