In the United States, car crashes and other motor vehicle accidents are responsible for more spinal cord injuries than any other cause. If your spinal cord has been damaged in an accident, the recovery process can be extremely difficult, and your life will likely never be the same. Spinal cord injury victims are often entitled to significant compensation from the driver responsible for the crash, which can provide some relief as you work to adapt to your new normal.

At minimum, a spinal cord injury will likely impair sensation anywhere below the location of the injury, and it can also affect motor skills, sometimes resulting in paralysis from the neck or waist down. Damage to the spinal cord can also affect respiratory and circulatory functions, as well as the abilities of various bodily organs.
