How Do Spine Injuries Happen?
Spine injuries can occur in any incident in which the spine is bent, crushed, strained, or compressed. Even a seemingly minor accident that disrupts the spine can lead to a serious injury.
Your spine injury may have been the result of a:
- Car accident
- Truck accident
- Pedestrian accident
- Motorcycle accident
- Bus accident
- Defective product
- Slip and fall accident
Types of Spine Injuries
Like any injury, spine injuries can range from minor to severe. However, even a relatively “minor” spine injury is often extremely painful and still has the potential to completely disrupt your life. In the most severe cases, spine injury results in partial or full paralysis.
Some types of spines injuries include:
How a Spine Injury Can Impact Your Life
The spine is one of the most important parts of the body. It is responsible for not only supporting your bones and the structure of your body, but also for communicating signals from your brain throughout your organs and tissues. The spine is a complex network of nerves, and if injured, a range of issues can result.
The way that a spine injury can potentially impact your life in the long term depends on the details of your situation. It is important to discuss your specific circumstances with your doctor and lawyer for further insight.
Issues That May Arise After a Spine Injury Accident
However, there are certain issues that nearly all spine injury cases have in common; in particular, the high costs of medical bills that often result. Spine injuries require extensive treatment, which may include surgery, medication, physical therapy, and even in-home care. Additionally, spine injury victims often are unable to work and earn as much money as they once did, which adds another financial burden. If your physical abilities are impacted by a spine injury, you also may not be able to participate in activities you used to enjoy, which can contribute to existing feelings of stress, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
