A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord or nerves that can lead to loss of function and/or feeling.
Car accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries in people under the age of 65. More common causes of SCIs include slip and falls, sports injuries, and swimming accidents.
What Damages Can Occur From a Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injuries are very serious and, aside from the physical pain, can include a lot more damages that greatly impact quality of life. Some of those damages can include, but are not limited to:
- Mental agony
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Loss of income
