The consequences of a spinal cord injury can be devastating

When a person suffers spinal cord damage, they will likely have to endure the consequences for a long time. In addition to the pain and suffering, the financial repercussions can be devastating. A spinal cord injury can deny a victim of their normal enjoyment of life, as it typically affects the body’s flexibility. Apart from degenerative disc disease -- the breakdown of the discs between the vertebrae -- spinal cord trauma often occur in various types of accidents.

Many personal injury lawsuits in Dallas are filed after individuals suffer such injuries as the result of another person’s negligence. Some of the most common accidental back injuries include automobile accidents, fall accidents and workplace accidents. An automobile accident, even if it is as insignificant as a fender-bender, can cause spinal trauma that is not always immediately evident. The injury may not be realized until weeks later, leaving the victim vulnerable of aggravation of the injury as he or she goes about their normal routine, which may include heavy lifting or exercising.

Workers who perform jobs that are physically demanding often suffer spinal cord damage due to continuous overuse and abuse of the back. Back injuries that are classified as physical trauma may occur when a person falls, and many personal injury claims stem from slip and fall accidents. Spinal cord injuries often cause disability and severe pain. It is not uncommon for victims of spinal damage to have to undergo surgical procedures in an attempt to deal with the consequences of the injury.

Spinal cord injury victims may face years of medical expenses for treatment and rehabilitation. They might pursue recovery of damages if the injury was caused by the negligence of another party. Victims in Dallas may benefit from the knowledge and experience of a professional person who deals with such claims on a daily basis.
