The impact of a spinal cord injury

Living in California means that you deal with some of the busiest roads and freeways in the world on a daily basis. This naturally opens up the possibility that you may be involved in an accident at some point. Whether caused by a drunk driver, a fatigued trucker or a person who just can't put away the phone while driving, the result can be equally devastating. As WebMD explains, a spinal cord injury is one condition that may result from a car or motorcycle accident.

Your spinal cord actually a bunch of nerves that together run through your vertebrae and act as a message delivery system for your body, transmitting instructions from your brain to the rest of your body. A sudden blow to this bundle of nerves can render it permanently damaged. If you think about the message transfer flowing down your spine, the severity of an injury can be associated with the exact location of the injury because any message flow from that point down may be cut off.

A person who becomes a quadraplegic after a spinal cord injury therefore experienced an injury near the upper portion of the spine. A person who still has use of his or her arms and torso but not the legs would have experienced an injury lower down in the back area.

If you would like to learn more about spinal cord injuries that result from accidents and how to get help, please feel free to visit the crash compensation page of our California personal injury website.
