What Is A Spinal Injury?
The spine, also known as the spinal column, supports most of the human body’s weight. The spinal column is comprised of 24 bones (vertebrae) and the tailbone (the sacrum). In between each bone is a disk of cartilage.
An injury of the spine could refer to an injury to the spine’s bones (the spinal column) or to the bundle of nerves that travel from the brainstem to the tailbone in the core of the spinal column (the spinal cord). Injuries to the spinal column are likely to affect the spinal cord because the spine’s vertebrae protect the cord.
According to the Merck Manual, herniated disks, loose ligament attachments, misalignment or separation of adjacent vertebrae, and spinal column fractures can injure the spinal cord.
How Do Spinal Column And Cord Accidents Occur?
Blunt trauma is the most common cause of spinal injuries, although the spinal cord can also be severed. This can be the result of any of the following circumstances:
- Motor vehicle crashes (such as from a car, truck, commercial vehicle, or motorcycle)
- Pedestrian or bicyclist accidents
- Slip and falls
- Violent acts, like a gunshot wound
Common Symptoms Of Spinal Injuries
The severity and the location of the spinal injury affect the level of disability a victim can experience. Common symptoms of spinal injuries include complete or partial paralysis, loss of sensation, weakness, numbness, tingling, impairment of function, and loss of range of motion.

In general, the more severe the injuries, the more you are likely to receive in financial compensation.
