Spine and spinal cord injuries can affect literally every area of one’s life. They can cause paralysis and may require ongoing care or costly assistive devices to help with mobility, communication, and performing day-to-day activities. For these reasons, spinal cord injuries are often the most expensive injuries to treat. It may take hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars to compensate a victim for the cost of his or her care – for life.

Potential Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
Direct trauma to the spine or an unnatural twisting or pulling motion can cause spinal cord injuries. If the nerves are stretched, damaged, or torn, partial or complete paralysis may result. Damage to the vertebrae or intervertebral discs can also affect mobility and can cause considerable pain.
The following are potential causes of spinal cord injuries:
- Auto accidents
- Work-related injuries
- Construction site accidents
- Falls from heights
- Slip and fall accidents
- Acts of violence
- Aviation accidents
- Sports injuries
