Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
When it comes to catastrophic injuries, spinal cord injuries can be some of the most devastating that an accident victim can experience. In workplace accident situations, spinal cord injuries are usually caused by
slip and fall accidents or by a falling object. The latter cause is common in
construction site accidents where large, heavy objects are being transported above the workers' heads and are liable to fall and crush them. Whatever caused the accident, a spinal cord injury can fall under one of two categories.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
If a spinal cord injury does not completely severe the cord, it is an incomplete spinal cord injury. These types of spinal cord injuries usually results in temporary numbness and loss of motor function below they area of injury, but heals over time with proper rest and physical therapy. However, a more severe accident could cause a complete spinal cord injury which, unlike an incomplete injury, causes permanent loss of feeling and motor function below the area of injury. Quadriplegia-complete paralysis from the neck down-is possible in such cases. Both incomplete and complete spinal cord injuries can have a damaging effect on your quality of life, as well as your future career, so speak with an Atlanta workers' compensation attorney if you have been injured on the job and need to seek compensation.
