The Function of the Spinal Cord

The spinal cord is an integral part of the body's nervous system. The nerves in the spinal cord are responsible for transporting messages from the brain to other parts of the body; therefore, the spinal cord is essential to your body's normal function.

Any interruption of this process can have devastating effects, and such an interruption can occur as the result of a spinal cord injury (SCI).

Being aware of the causes and consequences of a permanent spinal cord injury can help victims and their families better understand what it means for life after such a catastrophic injury and how to create the best quality of life possible.

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is a complex and serious injury. There are many different ways and many different places where such an injury can occur.

Spinal cord injuries are usually caused by a traumatic, forceful, and sudden blow to the spine that dislocates, fractures, or in some cases, crushes vertebrae, which can then tear into or otherwise damage the spinal cord tissue/nerves.

Once the nerve tissue is damaged, the connection between the brain and the body below the level of injury is also damaged, if not completely severed. This can result in a complete loss of functioning, or paralysis, below the level of the injury.

Common Causes of Spine Injuries

Spinal cord injuries, which can range from mild to severe, may be caused by a number of different accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, sports injuries, and on-the-job accidents. Sadly, most of these accidents are preventable.

These types of accidents are often caused by the negligence or recklessness of others. For such a devastating injury to occur at the hands of another is unacceptable. Spinal cord injuries can result in permanent disability, and even if a spinal cord injury victim can recover, it will be a long, painful, and expensive process.

At-fault parties should be held liable for causing such devastating accidents. With financial security, victims can get the medical services and long-term support they need while still being able to support themselves and their families. It is horrible what you've had to go through, but you are not without the right to seek justice.
