Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers in Dallas, Texas
Spinal cord injuries are devastating, catastrophic injuries. The spinal cord is the body’s central messaging system, allowing the brain to control many physical functions. When the cord is damaged, that messaging system stops working correctly. And because spinal cord tissue doesn’t heal and regrow, those disruptions are most likely permanent. As a result, victims of spinal cord injuries are left with permanent disabilities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that about 11,000 Americans sustain some type of traumatic spinal cord injury each year.
Statistically, the most common cause of traumatic spinal cord injuries varies by age. The majority of victims are under 30, and their leading cause of spinal damage is motor vehicle accidents. Sports injuries are also a common cause. Falls are the most common cause of spinal cord damage among people over 65. In many of these cases, the accident was directly caused by someone else’s negligence. For example, student athletes and irrational older people may be injured as a result of inadequate supervision. Car wrecks are very often caused by careless drivers. When this was the case, victims can benefit from talking with spinal cord injury lawyers in Dallas.
