Left with a Spinal Injury after a Missouri Car Accident?

Cervical Spinal Cord Injury

Whenever the spinal cord is injured, the results can be devastating. Automobile accidents, sports accidents, construction accidents, aviation accidents and falls can all lead to a spinal cord injury and if not treated properly, can lead to a lifetime of disabilities, pain and suffering. Unfortunately, the most severe and devastating of all spinal cord injuries are injuries to the cervical vertebrae.

The cervical area of the spinal cord is made up of the first 8 vertebrae in the neck. Injuries above the C4 level can result in complete paralysis below the neck, known as quadriplegia. Unfortunately, these injuries usually leave victims wheelchair bound for the remainder of their lives.

A cervical spinal cord injury can change your life forever. Contact a Missouri personal injury attorney immediately to ensure that your claim is handled quickly and efficiently in order to avoid any unnecessary financial burdens.

What Happens Afterwards?

In addition to loss of motion and sensation, cervical spinal cord injuries also result in:

  • loss of breathing
  • loss of bladder and bowel function
  • inability to sweat
  • inability to regulate body temperature
  • blood pressure instability
  • cardiac arrhythmia’s
  • pressure sores or ulcers
  • chronic pain

The severity and type of disability depends largely on the location and severity of the spinal cord injury. If the spinal cord is not completely severed, the injured person may retain some movement or feeling in their extremities. These incomplete spinal cord injuries leave each person with differing levels of ability and rehabilitation and therapy may help increase their level of functioning.
