Spinal Cord Injury Compensation

By Rick Hodge  Dec. 9, 2010 12:59p

Suffering a spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating types of accidents that can occur to a person due to the importance of the spinal cord in the body's functioning. The spinal cord is a bundle of sensitive nerves located within the bones of the spine. The spine, which is made up of interlocking bones called vertebrae, protects and houses the spinal cord in order to ensure the safety of the body's information transit system.

The spinal cord transmits information back and forth between the body, including messages for voluntary bodily movement, sensations and involuntary actions such as breathing while sleeping or the heartbeat. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury, your life may be altered permanently. By contacting a Wichita spinal cord injury lawyer as soon as possible, you will be taking the first steps towards fighting for compensation for your injuries.

There are many different possible causes of spinal cord injuries, most of which are caused by sudden or violent blows or trauma to the spine, or due to trauma caused in a surgical operation. Some common causes of spinal cord injuries can include car wrecks, drunk driving accidents, workplace injuries, slip and falls, motorcycle accidents, and even amusement park ride accidents. In many of these incidents, the accidents are caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another individual. Whenever this happens, that person can be held liable for the injuries that a person obtains.
