Spinal Cord and Neck Injuries
The spinal cord is essentially a bundle of nerves which relay messages between the brain and the rest of the body, protected by the bones of the spine, or vertebrae. When these nerves are damaged or severed, the brain’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body is disrupted. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, a person who has suffered neck or spinal cord damage may experience any of the following:
- Tingling sensations or numbness
- Paralysis, particularly below the site of the injury
- Loss of motor control
- Muscle weakness
- Shooting pains
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Respiratory difficulty
- Depression and other psychological issues
Spinal cord and neck injuries are often the result of sudden, severe trauma. Although auto accidents are the most common cause, accounting for about half of new spinal injury cases each year, neck and spinal cord injuries are caused by a number of factors, including slip and fall accidents, acts of violence such as gunshot wounds, and sports and recreation-related injuries. At The Roberts Law Firm, Santa Ana and Orange County neck and spinal cord injury lawyer Jeff Roberts has successfully obtained favorable verdicts and substantial settlements for many victims of neck and spinal injury.
