Accidents that cause injuries to the spine are among the most devastating experiences, often causing severe permanent results to victims. When these injuries are caused by negligent or willful acts of others, it is critical to seek legal representation from a law firm with specific experience and understanding of the complex legal and medical issues involved.
The Area of Spinal Injury Can Determine the Type of Damage
The spine has four primary regions, and damage to two of these regions can have the most dramatic effect on mobility, as follows:
Cervical region: The cervical nerves are located in the neck. Injury to this area often results in quadriplegia—paralysis of all four limbs. While other injuries can result in loss of some—but not all—function in the arm regions. Injuries occurring very high on the neck can also affect the ability to breathe.
- Lumbar and sacral regions: The lumbar region is located approximately at the waistline, extending down to the bottom of the spine. The sacral region is the tail of the spine. Injuries to these areas typically do not affect the arms and hands, but can result in paraplegia, which is paralysis of the area from the hips through the legs.
