There are many types of injuries a person can sustain in a traumatic accident, but when an injury damages the spinal cord, a victim may experience serious, and possibly permanent, health complications. The spinal cord protects delicate and valuable nerve systems and any injury to this part of the body may compromise an individual’s everyday life in dramatic ways. An injury to this sensitive and crucial part of the body could cause you to become severely and permanently disabled. Sadly, thousands of spinal cord injuries occur each year due to the negligent actions of others. In many cases, victims and their close family members are able to receive financial compensation from those responsible for their injuries.
