Spinal cord injuries are a distressingly common injury for auto accident victims. These injuries are particularly common for victims who are struck from behind or hit by large vehicles such as tractor-trailers and other large vehicles. We know from a young age that the nerves that allow us to walk and interact with our environment are protected by the spinal cord. When the integrity of the spine is impaired in some way, the results can be catastrophic for the victim and his or her family. Spinal cord injury victims often suffer paralysis that prevents them from working and providing for their families. They need an aggressive Orlando auto accident lawyer to explain their legal options, protect their rights and look out for their interests while they focus on regaining as much function and independence as possible.

Have you or a close family member suffered a spinal cord injury in an auto accident? Call 888-FLA-AUTO (888-352-2886) today to speak with an experienced Orlando auto accident attorney!

A Brief Explanation of Spinal Cord Injuries

When someone is involved in a car accident, even a seemingly minor accident, the sudden, traumatic collision can stress the connections between the vertebrae of the spine. These connections must be flexible in order for us to bend, reach and enjoy the range of motion that most of us take for granted every day. However, the ability to flex is somewhat limited, and the sudden trauma of an auto accident often displaces bone fragments, the discs that separate the vertebrae and the ligaments that hold the spine together. When this occurs, the nerves protected by each vertebrae can become torn, compressed or severed, resulting in catastrophic injuries such as these:

  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Chronic pain
  • Persistent numbness in limbs that are not paralyzed
  • Total lack of sensory input below the injury
  • The inability to control bowel and bladder functions
  • Increased susceptibility to cardiac and respiratory problems
  • Other terrible injuries that rob the victim of independence and quality of life
