Spinal cord injuries typically cause lifelong disabilities. The Majlessi Law Firm can help anyone suffering from spinal cord injuries because of others' negligence get the money they need for lifelong medical treatment.
Spinal cord injury is a term used to describe any injury to the spinal cord that results in a loss of sensation or function in the body. Approximately two million people worldwide and nearly 200,000 in the United States live with a spinal cord injury. Nearly 11,000 Americans sustain spinal cord injuries each year. These medical personal injuries cost the nation an estimated $9.7 billion a year.
Any trauma that compresses pushes sideways, or cuts the spinal cord may cause spinal cord injuries. A severed spinal cord cannot be repaired. Car and motorcycle accidents, gunshot and knife wounds, falls, and sports injuries are the most common causes of damage to the spinal cord. In fact, nearly half of the estimated 7,800 non-fatal spinal cord injuries that occur each year are the result of motor vehicle accidents. Whiplash is a common injury in car accidents. In whiplash, an injury to the neck results from sudden backward and forward motion that can cause chronic pain and reduced range of motion.
