    WHAT IS THE SPINAL CORD? 

    The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs from the base of the brain down the back and is encased in the spine. This bundle of nerves may not seem too impressive at first, but the spinal cord connects the rest of the body to the brain, thus allowing for much of the body’s internal transmissions within the nervous system. Your spinal cord carries signals and without it, the brain would not be able to tell your arm to move, your lungs to breathe, or for your mouth to form words.

    CAUSES OF SPINAL CORD INJURY

    Auto accidents are the most frequent cause of injury to the spine, accounting for nearly 47% of all spinal cord injuries. Falls come in second at 23%, followed by violent acts at 14%, and sports accidents at 9%.

    In some cases, the injury can be the fault of another person. This can occur due to a car accident, defective product, neglected property, or any number of other circumstances. The loss of mobility and quality of life that accompany a spinal cord injury can be overwhelming. Loss of income, long-term medical treatments, therapy, and changes in lifestyle is stressful and debilitating, not only for you but for your loved ones.

    WHEN TO CALL A PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

    The aftermath of an injury to the spinal cord can be devastating. You and your family will have to make large adjustments in your lives. You may require physical therapy to regain function and to avoid chronic pain. People with spinal cord injuries may also be unable to return to work. If this was the case for you, then you and your family may be struggling with lost wages in addition to large medical bills.

    You do not have to handle this alone. If your spinal cord injury was the result of a motor vehicle accident or any other incident where someone else’s negligence was a contributing factor, you should call an experienced Tucson personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
