Structure & Function of the Spinal Cord

The spinal cord is approximately 17 inches long and is protected by the backbone, which is made up of 33 individual vertebrae. Spinal cord injuries can occur at any level of the cord. These types of injuries are often the result of major accidents, including motor vehicle collisions, falls, violent acts, or other trauma or compression to the nerve cells of the cord.

The spinal cord is vital to both physical feeling and physical movement. Anything from feeling a breeze to picking up a fork to getting up out of a chair doesn’t happen without the spinal cord. The spine contains 33 vertebrae, with neuron pathways that allow your body to function. Motor neurons that allow you to move are located in the front section of the cord. While bones can heal, these pathways cannot.

Building a Spinal Cord Injury Case

Case development and trial for someone who has suffered a spinal cord injury present the challenge of obtaining adequate compensation to cover the lifetime needs of the litigant. It is essential for the attorney to identify, project, and quantify the lifetime medical needs and expenses facing the spinal cord litigant and to fully and adequately prove the effects of the spinal cord injury on the litigant’s life. An attorney who knows how to approach this challenge and who has successfully handled spinal cord injury cases should be consulted in these cases.
