Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injury in Melbourne

Though it is possible to sustain a spinal cord injury through an illness or birth defect, the majority of injuries are caused by incidents like:

  • Work-related accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Sports or recreational accidents
  • Falls or injuries due to property negligence
  • Medical malpractice
  • Acts of violence

Many of these occurrences are because of another's actions or negligence. Since spinal cord injuries usually result in long-lasting or permanent conditions, the person or entity responsible should be held accountable. A compassionate, experienced Florida personal injury attorney can handle the justice and restitution for your case so you can focus on the important things like getting better.

Conditions Resulting from Spinal Cord Injuries in Central Florida

Spinal cord injuries result in a variety of conditions ranging from temporary to permanent to life-threatening, depending on whether the cord is bruised, cut off from blood supply, partially severed, or nearly completely severed. All spinal cord injuries are expensive due to their sensitive nature and the extensive therapy required.

Spinal Contusions

  • Bruising of the spinal cord from an injury that causes bleeding around the cord but doesn't sever it
  • Symptoms are usually temporary and involve complete or incomplete spinal cord debilitation

Spinal Cord Syndromes

  • Involves varying degrees of injuries to specific portions of the spine
  • Includes Brown-Séquard Syndrome, Anterior Cord Syndrome, Central Cord Syndrome, Conus Medullaris Syndrome, and Cauda Equina Syndrome
  • Symptoms are usually severe, can be permanent, and include loss of bladder and bowel control, sensory loss, and loss of motor control depending on the location of the injury

Partial or Near-Complete Spinal Cord Severance

  • Most commonly causes paralysis of varying degrees
  • Includes incomplete motor function, paraplegia (paralysis of lower body) and quadriplegia (paralysis of all four limbs).

The cost for these injuries is in the 100s of thousands for the first year, and anywhere from the 10s to 100s of thousands each subsequent year for conditions requiring further treatment and therapy. If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal injury due to another's negligence, the last thing you should have to worry about is cost of living associated with the injury.
