Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)


Spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when the spinal cord is damaged, thereby resulting in a loss of function or feeling. SCI is commonly caused by trauma experienced in a car accident or fall or by diseases, such as polio or spina bifida. Spinal cord injuries are very serious and can cause permanent disability in your trunk, limbs, or extremities and even a loss of involuntary motor function, such as breathing. SCI victims may experience weakness in the limbs, shortness of breath, numbness, complete or partial paralysis, tingling in the extremities, and bowel and bladder control problems. Some victims are rendered paraplegic or quadriplegic, losing motor function of their limbs or extremities for the rest of their lives. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in a car accident, it is imperative that you seek the advice of an experienced Michigan injury attorney immediately.
