Raleigh Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Spinal cord injuries are among the most crippling ailments reported in workers' compensation claims. They typically result from some violent action such as a car crash, a fall from a significant height, or being struck by some heavy object.

Anatomy Of A Workplace Spinal Cord Injury

The spinal cord conducts instructions from the brain to the body. When the cord is traumatized or severed, the conduit no longer functions. The injuries that result vary according to severity of the blow and its location. A blow to the middle spine will affect the legs, causing paraplegia. An injury higher up on the spine may affect all limbs, resulting in quadriplegia.

In seconds, you can go from being whole and fully functioning to being unable to control your extremities. Spinal cord injuries not only diminish the quality of life, but they decrease actual life expectancy. The loss to the individual harmed by a spinal cord injury is great indeed.
