Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers in Jacksonville
Neck & Back Injuries
Many individuals suffer from minor neck and back pain. However, some spinal cord injuries can be very serious, and sometimes even permanently disabling. Spinal cord injuries can also result in chronic pain.
Spinal cord injuries are one of the most frequent reported reasons for missed work, and one of the most frequent complaints made to doctors. Spinal cord injuries usually result when there has been trauma causing a serious injury or irritation to the complex structures of the back or neck. Most spinal cord injuries are the result of trauma caused by traffic accidents, with soft tissue injuries being the most common. Yet, spinal cord injuries can also result from falls, sport, work accidents, and the use of defective products.
Typical types of spinal cord injuries include:
- Compression fractures
- Herniated, ruptured, or slipped disks
- Connective tissue injuries
Tenderness, stiffness or spasms in the muscles of the neck and back, headaches, dizziness, nausea, vision impairment, and memory difficulty can be symptoms of a spinal cord injury. Pain, tingling, numbness, or paralysis of an extremity can indicate that a more severe injury has occurred, and immediate treatment should be sought from a medical professional. Treatment of spinal cord injuries can involve physical therapy, medication, or surgery.
When spinal cord injuries occur, they can cause severe physical, as well as emotional, hardships for the individual. Not only may there be extreme pain, but there can also be extensive medical bills, stress due to an inability to perform necessary day-to-day tasks, limited ability to work, and loss of wages due to missed work.
