Orlando Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
Help With The Heavy Cost Of Your Recovery
A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal and often causes permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury. SCI occurs when a traumatic event damages the cells within the spinal cord or severs the nerve tracts that relay signals within the spinal cord. Common types of SCI include contusion or bruising of the spinal cord and compression to the cord. Other types of injuries include lacerations or tearing of some nerve fibers, such as damage caused by a gunshot wound. In all cases, SCI is serious and in severe cases causes paralysis and loss of sensation to parts of the body. Over time, other symptoms such as pain or sensitivity to stimuli, muscle spasms, and sexual dysfunction can manifest themselves.
Spinal cord injuries can occur anywhere, but the leading cause of these injuries is car accidents. Other causes include falls, workplace accidents, electric shock, sporting injuries, and gunshot or knife wounds. The potential life-altering effects of such injuries demand full attention.
