Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

According to the Mayo Clinic, “spinal cord injuries result from damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself.”

The trauma to the spinal cord may stem from:

  • Sudden, traumatic blow to the spine
  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Dislocated vertebrae
  • Crushed vertebrae
  • Compresses vertebrae
  • Gunshot or knife wound that penetrates and cuts the spinal cord
  • Additional damage is caused by swelling, bleeding inflammation, fluid accumulation in and around spinal cord

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries:

If you sustained a spinal cord injury that was caused by another’s negligent or willful conduct in the state of Arizona, you may seek compensation in a personal injury lawsuit.

You may be entitled to compensation for:

Who is liable for your injury?

Were you the victim of a violent assault? Not only your attacker, but any premises owner who failed to provide adequate security or other legally required deterrents to criminal activity (such as proper lighting at night or camera surveillance), could be held liable for the total cost to you of your injuries, including medical expenses, lost income from time away from work, as well as diminished quality of life.
