Kansas City Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
Seeking Just Compensation from a Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries are normally quite serious, as they can result in
damage to the motor controls of the body. Stretching from the base of
the neck all the way to the tail bone, the spinal cord can be injured
anywhere along its length, with differing effects to the body depending
on what part of the spine is injured. There are thousands of spinal cord
injuries occurring every year, with approximately half of them occurring
as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Other types of accidents that
can cause spinal cord injuries include:
- Auto accidents
- Work-related accidents
The injuries from a spinal cord accident can be severe, with paraplegia
or quadriplegia resulting, leaving a person paralyzed for life. Even a
moderate spinal cord injury can affect a person's ability to walk
freely and without pain. Treatment for such an injury can be tremendously
costly, sometimes requiring lifetime care if a person becomes paralyzed.
