According to statistical reports, car accidents are the number one cause of injuries which result in back problems. However, other types of accidents such as a fall from a ladder or scaffolding in the course of performing a job at a construction site can also result in serious spinal cord injuries. Regardless of how it occurs and even if the injury seems minor at the time, it is vital to have it diagnosed early on, as many spinal injuries become more severe or pronounced over time. It is also critical that victims of these types of injuries be transported to the hospital via ambulance, as proper stability is important to protect against further damage or injury to the location. By seeking medical attention at once and having an MRI, CT scan or X-ray performed, you can not only provide evidence of your injuries should you go to court, mitigating the damages often means there is less likelihood a Los Angeles personal injury attorney will refuse to take your case.Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
Injuries to individual nerve cells, Brow-Sequard Syndrome, thoracic or disc injuries (rupture, bulge, or herniated) or central cord syndrome - there are several types of injuries which can occur following an accident, some severe and others relatively minor. Thoracic injuries occur when the spine is impacted in a violent manner, involving the abdominal area. These types of injuries can lead to a loss of sensation in the arms and legs, and even paraplegia. Herniated and ruptured discs are quite common, and in severe cases can result in lack of movement in the legs and arms.
Regardless of the type of injury you sustain, all can affect your ability to work, perform everyday tasks at home, and be extremely costly. Depending on the severity of your injury and how it affects your movement, ability to walk/use your hands, etc., it may be that you cannot work. The financial costs can be overwhelming.
