Causes of Brain and Spinal Cord Injury
Head, brain, neck and spinal cord injuries are often caused by blunt trauma, car accidents, truck collisions, motorcycle accidents, violent slip and fall accidents, sports and recreational injuries or acts of violence. They also frequently result from the use of dangerous or defective products.
When caused by another person’s bad choices or reckless actions, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injuries (SCI) are forms of harm governed under personal injury law.
With one tragic event, a client’s life changes forever in these cases. If you or a family member is a victim of a brain or spinal cord injury caused by the poor decisions of others, our personal injury lawyers are dedicated to helping you secure the monetary compensation that you urgently need and deserve.
Long-Term Consequences of Brain Injury
After an individual sustains a catastrophic head, neck or spinal cord injury, he or she may never be able to work again. Plus, many symptoms of brain and spinal cord injuries do not appear until damage has already become severe.
Brain trauma may affect a person’s cognitive, physical and psychological ability. The victim’s personality, physical abilities, and mental state very often become altered following a TBI. An individual may suffer stroke, seizure, internal bleeding, loss of bodily functions, loss of memory, and the loss of comprehension and awareness, ability to speak, and ability to perform complex thinking.
Each person who suffers brain injury is affected differently and with varying levels of severity. Individuals with what is called persistent “mild” TBI are often unable to continue living the way they did before the brain injury, and will need tremendous support as they dramatically alter many areas of their lives.
Long-Term Consequences of Spinal Cord Injury
Those who have sustained spinal cord injury may suffer dire physical and emotional impairments involving loss of movement, strength, sensation, as well as complications with bowel and bladder control, impotence, and varying levels of pain and spasms.
Spinal trauma often results in partial or complete paralysis, leading to paraplegia or quadriplegia:
- Paraplegia involves paralysis of the lower limbs. Trauma has occurred to the lower vertebrae of the spinal column.
- Quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia, involves paralysis of all four limbs. Trauma has occurred to the upper vertebrae of the spinal column.
Further complications with spinal cord injuries may develop including gastrointestinal issues, respiratory disease such as pneumonia, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) and more.
