Spinal Cord Injuries from Car and Workplace Accidents: You Are Not Alone

If you have suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of a workplace or automobile accident, you might be interested in some of these statistics:

  • Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur on a daily basis.
  • Most of these injuries come from automobile and workplace accidents.
  • The majority of spinal cord sufferers are men under 30 years old.

Spinal cord injuries only get worse if they are not properly treated. The spine tends to take on pressure from the entire body, and if it is weakened, it can affect everything from your posture to your speech patterns. You will gradually lose your ability to work productively and function normally in society. If you have already lost movement or feeling in any part of your body, then you require immediate assistance.

The Spinal Cord: The Body's Central Messaging System

Your spinal cord is basically responsible for delivering electrical messages to and from the brain through upper motor neurons. These messages are then distributed to the rest of the body, and they include everything from muscle movement to pressure and temperature regulation within the body. Spinal cord injuries fundamentally reduce the body's ability to send itself the messages that it needs to survive.

Spinal Injuries, Cars, and Workplaces

By far, the most common causes of spinal cord injury are accidents within the workplace or within a vehicle. If you have suffered an injury under either one of these circumstances, you need medical assistance immediately.

It may also help to speak to a lawyer. Medical expenses can grow quite quickly. If your accident has impaired your life, speak with a legal professional about what happened. You may have available recovery options - especially if the injury resulted from another's wrongdoing.
