Origins of Neck and Spinal Cord Injury
A bevy of circumstances often precipitate neck and spine injuries, including
car accidents, truck collisions, blunt trauma, slip and fall accidents,
sports, recreational activities,
motorcycle accidents and medical malpractice, among other forms of trauma or collision. They
may also arise as the result of defective safety products and equipment.
When induced by the poor judgment or negligence or another, spinal cord
injuries (SCI) and neck problems fall under the mandates of personal injury law.
Health Risks Related to Spine and Neck Injuries
Depending on the severity of the injury a person endures to their neck
and spine, they may never be able to produce income again and, in fact,
may become completely dependent on others. This can be particularly challenging
if the person injured was the primary income provider of a family. Please
note that many of the symptoms stemming from spinal cord and neck injuries
fail to manifest themselves until the damage has reached an acute level
in terms of severity.
Neck, spine and affiliated brain injury may erode a person’s psychological,
physical and cognitive capacities. These types of injuries often precipitate
a change in the victim’s physical prowess, mental capacities as
well as his or her personality. Incidents of stroke, seizure, failed memory,
uncontrollable bodily functions, internal bleeding, reduced thinking capacities,
loss of speech and failed comprehension and awareness may result. More
severe cases of injury related to the neck and spine may precipitate more
acute physical and emotional challenges related to erosion of strength,
movement, impotence, bladder control, gastrointestinal failure, pneumonia,
blood clots, spasms and chronic pain. Spinal injuries in particular present
a great risk for leading to paraplegia or quadriplegia.
From a technical standpoint, paraplegia refers to the paralysis of a person’s
lower limbs, while injury has taken place also on the lower vertebrae
of the spine. In contrast, quadriplegia, or tetraplegia, refers to the
paralysis of all four human limbs. Trauma has taken place, in this condition,
at the upper vertebrae of the spine.
Ultimately, each victim presents a unique set of symptoms and ailments
based on their case, but will require, nevertheless, tremendous assistance
emotionally, financially and physically as they embark upon a new chapter
in their lives.
Costs of Long-Term Healthcare
The injuries and health conditions described above related to neck or
spinal cord risk costing families and support networks of victims upwards
of millions of dollars throughout the time of disability. The costs for
treatment, medication, in-home nursing care, rehabilitation facilities
and home rehab, medical equipment, transportation or skilled nursing home
care, depending on the needs of the victim, can be substantial.
