Common causes of spinal cord injuries

There are many ways in which a person can suffer a spinal cord injury. These injuries can be caused by car accidents, falls, workplace accidents, sports injuries and more.

Some of the most common causes of spinal cord injuries include:

Car accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries in the United States.

A spinal cord injury can happen in any type of car accident, whether it is a rear-end collision, T-bone crash or head-on collision. Any sudden impact can cause the spine to compress, leading to a spinal cord injury.


Falls are a common cause of spinal cord injuries, particularly among older adults.

A fall can cause a person to suffer a spinal cord injury if the fall is forceful enough to cause the spine to compress. This can happen if you fall from a height, land on your head or experience a sudden impact.

Workplace accidents

Workers in certain industries, such as construction and healthcare, are at a higher risk for suffering a spinal cord injury on the job.

Construction workers are often exposed to hazardous conditions and heavy machinery that can cause a spinal cord injury if mishandled. In addition, construction workers often work at high heights and in tight spaces, which can increase the risk of a fall and resulting spinal cord injury.

Sports injuries

Spinal cord injuries can occur in any sport, but they are most common in contact sports, such as football, rugby and hockey.

These sports involve a lot of physical contact, which can lead to a spinal cord injury if the players are not careful. In addition, sports like football and rugby can cause players to collide with each other or with obstacles on the field, leading to a sudden impact that can compress the spine and cause a spinal cord injury.

What are the signs of a spinal cord injury?

A spinal cord injury can cause a wide range of symptoms, depending on the location and severity of the injury.

Some common signs of a spinal cord injury include:

  • Loss of movement
  • Loss of sensation
  • Paralysis
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Intense pain

A spinal cord injury can cause either complete or partial paralysis. Complete paralysis, also known as quadriplegia, is when the victim loses all feeling and movement in their arms and legs. Partial paralysis, also known as paraplegia, is when the victim loses feeling and movement in their legs only.

No matter how severe your symptoms are, it is important to seek medical attention immediately if you suspect you have suffered a spinal cord injury.

Long-term effects of spinal injuries

The long-term effects of a spinal cord injury can be devastating. These injuries can lead to a lifetime of pain, disability and financial insecurity.

Some common long-term effects of a spinal cord injury include:

  • Chronic pain
  • Muscle atrophy
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of mobility
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Emotional distress

Compensation available to Missouri spinal cord injury victims

If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages.

Missouri has no cap on damages in personal injury cases, which means that victims are not limited in the damages they can recover. This includes both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

The value of compensation for a spinal cord injury can vary depending on the unique details of each case.

For example, if the victim is left with permanent disabilities as a result of the injury, they may be entitled to additional damages, such as future medical expenses and loss of earning capacity.

It is important to seek legal advice from a qualified spinal cord injury attorney to find out exactly what damages you may be entitled to receive.
