Causes Of Spinal Cord Injury And Paralysis
Although some neurological conditions can lead to paralysis, most cases are the result of accidents and violence that include:
- Motor vehicle accidents: Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries and paralysis. If the driver who caused the accident was under the influence or otherwise negligent, victims of spinal cord injury may be able to obtain compensation.
- Construction accidents: Ladder and scaffolding fall and crush injuries are another leading cause of paralysis. Additionally, slip and falls can leave people paralyzed. Older people are especially vulnerable
- Acts of violence: Gunshot wounds and knife wounds are frequent causes of paralysis.
- Sports and leisure injuries: Sports such as football, swimming and diving, and hockey are the leading causes of sports-related paralysis. Amusement park rides that malfunction are another cause of spinal cord injury.
When these accidents and events such as these were the results of negligence or criminal negligence, victims may be able to obtain compensation.
