The central nervous system has two main components—the brain and the spinal cord. The spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae that make up the spine. When a car accident causes spinal injury, the results can be catastrophic. Hinkle Law Offices can help you come back from a spinal injury by getting you the help and compensation you deserve.
What Are Spinal Cord Injuries?
Protected by the vertebrae, the spinal cord is a bundle of long nerve fibers that connect the brain to the nervous system. Although the spinal cord is wrapped in protective layers, damage can still be done to it by trauma like a car accident. This bundle of nerve fibers can be bruised, compressed or even torn. As the spinal cord transmits signals along nerves and to the brain, a spinal cord injury can result in loss of sensation, loss of physical control and even paralysis.
Spinal injury can also include herniated discs, compressed discs, fractured and dislocated vertebrae. This also includes muscle injury to the supportive muscle in the neck and the back muscles that are attached to the vertebrae. Back and neck injuries go hand in hand with many spinal cord injuries. And the pain they cause can range from tolerable to immobilizing.
