Spinal Cord Injury
A Motorcycle SPINAL CORD INJURY CAN LEAD TO PARALYSIS!
One of the most life-changing injuries we see in motorcycle accident is when a client has hurt his or her spinal cord. We understand how this type of injury can affect your life. You may be unable to ever work again. You may have difficulty doing the things you love with your family. At Peake & Fowler, we make it our business to help South Carolinians just like you.
A spinal cord injury might happen as a result of damage or trauma to the spine. If your spinal cord is damaged, you may not be able to move your legs or feel anything below your neck, depending on how severe the injury is.
A motorcycle rider may suffer a spinal cord injury in an accident, but there are other typical causes of a spinal cord injury, which may lead to paralysis (when you can't move a portion of your body).
Common causes of spinal cord injury include:
A spinal cord injury typically results in some degree of paralysis, including:
- Paraplegia: Paralysis of the bottom portion of the body — including the legs — from a spinal cord accident
- Quadriplegia: Paralysis of all four limbs — both arms and both legs — from a spinal cord accident.
- Partial paralysis: Paralysis that may be limited to a part or some parts of the body — including hands, legs or even portions of the face — due to a spinal cord accident.
An accident victim who breaks his or her back or neck without damaging the spinal cord may not suffer any kind of paralysis. A broken back or neck may only involve damage fracture or dislocation of the vertebrae.
