The Effects of Back and Spinal Cord Injuries
The spine is constructed of individual, small bones called vertebrae. Within
the vertebral structure of the spine is the spinal cord. The spinal cord
is the network of nervous tissue that is housed in the spine and controls
movement and sensation throughout the body.
When the spinal cord is injured, a victim will often experience intense
pain along with a loss in the feeling and functionality of body systems.
The specific impact of a spine injury will depend on which part of the
spine was affected — connections to every part of the body can be
found in the spine, so these types of injuries can yield a variety of
symptoms. Spine damage is often a catastrophic injury that can result
in severe complications including partial to complete paralysis, loss
of organ functionality, spasms, and loss of sensation.
Causes of Spine Injuries and Liability
The impact of a
motor vehicle collision,
on-the-job accident, or other traumatic incident could result in a spinal cord injury. Because
the causes of these injuries differ so widely, the details of claims —
especially liable parties — can vary greatly.
Litigation of a spine injury case will depend on the specifics of your
circumstance. For example, a person who sustained a back injury in a car
accident may need to negotiate with insurance companies, while an occupational
injury victim could pursue damages through a workers’ compensation
claim. Our Mississippi spine injury lawyers are experienced in a variety
of legal practice areas and are prepared to apply our knowledge to your case.
