Spinal Cord Injuries as a Result of a South Carolina Accident (Part A)

A spinal cord injury can be one of the most devastating types of injuries to receive as a result of a South Carolina accident. Spinal cord injuries often leave an individual in pain and facing long-term treatment and recovery. This can be not only physically challenging but financially as well.

A South Carolina personal injury attorney who has experience with accidents involving spinal cord injuries understands the implications of this type of trauma. A South Carolina personal injury attorney will consider all of your financial, emotional and physical suffering when pursuing your case.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

One of the more common causes of a spinal cord injury is a motor vehicle accident.
This can include accidents involving motorcycles or bicycles. Additionally, industrial accidents and sports activities can also lead to a spinal cord injury. Even a minor South Carolina accident can result in damage to the spinal cord.

No matter what type of accident an individual is involved in, any type of damage to the spinal cord can lead to a loss of functioning at some level.
A sudden, traumatic blow to the spinal cord can cause vertebrae to be fractured or dislocated. This can then lead to spinal cord tissue being bruised or torn.

Additionally, axons, which play a role in carrying signals between the brain, the rest of the body and the spinal cord may be destroyed or crushed.
Depending on the extent of the injury, an individual may be able to fully recuperate or the injury may lead to paralysis.

Sometimes a serious accident will lead to a spinal cord being severed, which although not common, does cause a complete loss of functioning.
Injuries from a South Carolina accident can lead to the devastating outcome of a spinal cord injury. This is where the help of an experienced and knowledgeable South Carolina personal injury attorney comes in.
