Spinal Cord Injuries

S

pinal cord injuries are typically serious and devastating injuries that can result in permanent disability. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of spinal cord injuries. Falls, acts of violence, gunshot wounds and industrial or work-related accidents are also causes of spinal cord injuries.

Manifestations of a spinal cord injury can occur immediately after an injury or can gradually develop afterwards. The location and severity of the injury affects which signs or symptoms will result. Symptoms that may occur as a result of a spinal injury include extreme pain or stinging in the back or neck area, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, breathing difficulties, loss of bowel or bladder control and loss of movement or paralysis. Because of the severity of a spinal cord injury, immediate medical treatment should be sought in order to prevent long term effects from the injury.

Nebraska law permits recovery of damages for spinal cord injuries caused by the negligent conduct of another. Whether the cause is an automobile or truck collision or other accident, a competent attorney should be consulted as soon as possible. Due to the debilitating effects of a spinal cord injury, it is likely to have an immediate impact on the injured person's emotional and psychological well-being, as well as physical health.

A spinal cord injury diagnosis can be emotionally overwhelming and confusing for everyone involved. The injured, as well as family members and loved one's daily lives can be affected by a spinal cord injury. In addition to the physical and emotional impact, spinal cord injuries and their treatment can be very expensive.
