What Are Common Causes of Spine Injuries?

Spinal cord injuries can result in severe injuries, such as paralysis or death. Usually, an injury occurs as the result of a traumatic blow to the spine but occasionally may be the result of medical malpractice or defective products as well.

According to Mayo Clinic, as of 2023, the most common causes of spinal cord injuries in the United States are:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Both auto and motorcycle accidents are the primary cause of spinal cord injuries, making up nearly half of all new cases annually.
  • Falls: This is the most common cause of spinal cord injuries in individuals over the age of 65.
  • Acts of violence: Approximately 12% of spinal cord injuries are caused by violent incidents, often involving gunshot or knife wounds.
  • Sports and recreation injuries: Athletic activities, including impact sports and diving in shallow water, account for approximately 10% of spinal cord injuries.
  • Diseases: Conditions such as cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, and inflammation of the spinal cord can also lead to spinal cord injuries.

In some cases, an individual’s spinal injury is the result of another’s negligence. For example, if a drunk driver hits a car and causes the driver inside to develop a spinal cord injury, they may be held liable for that injury.

What Medical Bills Can You Expect for a Spinal Cord Injury?

Obtaining compensation for serious injuries such as these is crucial because medical treatment and therapy for a spinal injury are often expensive and time-consuming.

Here are some of the expenses your personal injury attorney will help you recoup. 

Spinal Cord Damage Diagnosis Includes:

  • CT Scans
  • MRI Scans
  • Physical Exam

Spinal Cord Injury Treatments Include:

  • Surgery
  • Medications
  • Traction
  • Splints, braces, halos, or other support devices

As you can see, there are significant medical costs from the types of injuries associated with spinal cord damage. Your spinal cord injury lawyer will also factor in future expenses for ongoing medical care should you experience permanent damage.
