Approximately 50 percent of all spinal cord injuries each year in the United States are caused by car accidents. Many victims experience severe chronic pain, paralysis, and death. The cause is generally trauma, a sudden blow or impact to the spine, fracturing, or dislocating the vertebrae. In the majority of the cases, the injury is the fault of another, whether the driver of a car, a defective product, or hazardous property. In such situations, the victim of the spinal cord injury may have a legal claim, demanding the assistance of an experienced Beverly Hills personal injury attorney.
Injury to the spinal cord is very serious and can lead to other health problems. The spinal cord consists of a bundle of nerves that runs from the base of the brain and down the back. Injury to the spinal cord can result in loss of sensation and movement, including paralysis of all four limbs and the lower half of the body. Victims will usually have a shorter mortality.
