Types of Accidents That Commonly Cause Spinal Cord Injuries

In the U.S., there are nearly 17,000 new cases of spinal cord injuries annually, with the majority of cases caused by preventable incidents, such as road traffic collisions, falls, or violence. These types of severe injuries may be so catastrophic that you may need around-the-clock care for the rest of your life. 

Depending on the accident, you may suffer paralysis, inability to eat, breathe on your own, do everyday tasks without assistance, or otherwise care for yourself. For this reason, it is imperative to hold the responsible party accountable to recover present and future losses for the harm they have caused.  

Any type of accident may result in spinal cord injuries. However, the following are among the most common that may lead to a personal injury claim:  

Vehicle Accidents 

Motor vehicle accidents, including car crashes, motorcycle collisions, and truck accidents, are major contributors to spinal cord injuries. The sheer force of impact, coupled with the rapid deceleration and potential for ejection, can lead to severe spinal cord trauma. Victims of motor vehicle accidents may suffer permanent or partial paralysis, depending on the accident circumstances.  

Slip-And-Fall Accidents 

Slip-and-fall accidents occur in various settings, such as workplaces, businesses, public areas, or private properties. When an individual slips, trips, or falls and lands on their back or neck, it can result in spinal cord damage. These injuries may arise from wet floors, uneven surfaces, inadequate signage, or poorly maintained premises. 

Construction And Workplace Accidents 

Workers in construction, manufacturing, and agriculture industries face a prevalent risk of spinal cord injuries due to accidents involving heavy machinery, falling objects, or unsafe working conditions. Numerous parties may be responsible for spinal cord injuries in the workplace, including supervisors, project managers, property owners, and other third parties.
