What South Florida Drivers Need to Know About Spinal Cord Injuries and their Causes

A spinal cord injury can happen to anyone and can result from even the most minor slip and fall, or Florida car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and bicycle accidents. An injured spinal cord can cause any number of problems depending on the location of the injury. A damaged spinal cord can affect everything from speech to movement and these effects often last a lifetime.

Many spinal cord injuries cause some type of permanent disability, including possible paralysis.The severity of damage to the spinal cord depends on both the severity of the injury and its location. Injuries higher up on the spinal cord are generally more severe and cause a greater degree of paralysis. The more damage the spinal cord suffers, the greater the loss of mobility and potential for paralysis.

After an accident you should look for these emergency signs to spot a spinal cord injury:

 

• Losing consciousness, even for a short period of time
• Extreme back pain or pressure in the neck, head or back
• Weakness or paralysis in any part of the body
• Numbness, tingling, or loss of sensation in the hands, fingers, feet or toes
• Loss of bladder or bowel control
• Intense pain or stinging sensation
• Loss of movement or sensation, including the ability to feel heat, cold and touch
• Loss of bowel or bladder control
• Exaggerated reflex activities or spasms
• Difficulty breathing and coughing

Every day people are injured in Florida car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, and bicycle accidents, slip and fall accidents as well as injuries from medical malpractice. Some accidents are severe and can cause  injuries that can last a lifetime. Serious injuries such as a Florida spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, or head trauma can result in paraplegia, quadriplegia, nerve damage, or facial paralysis.  Most severe injuries are long-lasting and could require future medical attention. Don’t settle with an insurance company until you have spoken with a knowledgeable South Florida spinal cord Injury attorney.
