Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries
It can be difficult for any employee stricken with an injury or illness in the workplace to come to terms with the matter. Depending upon the circumstances and severity of the accident, the prospect of getting back to work in the same place and performing the same tasks can be emotionally paralyzing. Beyond this psychological impediment there are painful physical ramifications and financial implications to be borne and the collective toll that this can take on an injured worker and his or her family may be devastating.

The spinal cord contains many of the nerves that are responsible for connecting nerve endings and the brain. When someone suffers a spinal cord injury it essentially has the effect of turning the power off for the electrical pathways that send and receive important signals back and forth. As a result, virtually every aspect of one’s physical capacities and some vital processes are compromised and may be completely destroyed. Common causes of workplace injuries to the spinal cord include:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Automobile accidents
- Crushing injuries due to falling objects
There are many complications associated with a spinal cord injury, and it is highly probable that your ability to work will be permanently affected.
