What Commonly Causes Spinal Cord Injuries?
Spinal cord injuries can occur anytime, anywhere. However, there are certain
circumstances that make spinal cord injuries more likely.
Mayo Clinic, the most common spinal cord injury causes in the U.S. are as follows:
- Car accidents
- Assault and other acts of violence
- Sports injuries or recreational accidents
It’s also important to note that alcohol consumption is a factor
in about 1 in every 4 spinal cord injuries. Although physical damage is
often a factor in spinal damage, spinal injuries can also occur as the
result of illness, such as cancer, arthritis, or inflammation.
What Should I Do After a Spinal Cord Injury?
If someone you know suffers a spinal cord injury, the most important thing
to do is to keep them still until medical professionals arrive. The spinal
cord is an extremely complex body part, and serious, debilitating nerve
damage can occur if the injured party is not treated with the utmost care.
To prevent injuries from worsening, the first thing you should do after
a spinal cord injury is brace the injured person and call 911 for professional help.

costs, which is why it’s important for injured parties to claim
all appropriate damages after an accident. Damages may include medical
bills, future medical care, medication, lost wages, decreased earning
