Have You Suffered A Spinal Cord Injury?

By Remer & Georges-Pierre  Oct. 31, 2010 2:30p

One of the most serious types of injuries a person may sustain is one involving the spinal cord. The spinal cord is the conduit for messages, which travel to and from the body and the brain. These messages contain information vital for ordinary function and survival such as pain, feelings of hot and cold, and the ability to retain motor functions of limbs.

When the spinal cord is damaged, the vertebrae may shift and pinch, damage or sever the central nervous system resulting in catastrophic damage to the body's information highway. A person who suffers a spinal cord injury can lose sensation in body parts or become partially or entirely paralyzed from the point of injury downward, depending upon how severe the nerve damage is.

The possible causes of spinal cord injuries are numerous and can include auto accidents, sporting accidents or slip and falls. Many of these injuries are often due to the negligence of another individual, which means that they are liable for a legal claim because they allowed you to be injured. A Miami spinal cord injury attorney will be able to recognize and try to prove negligence on the part of another party or company, which can allow an injured individual to receive compensation for their injuries and medical expenses.
