Spinal Cord Injury After a Motorcycle Accident

Thousands of people are injured in motorcycle accidents each year, several of whom suffer a spinal cord injury.

A spinal cord injury is quite common in a motorcycle accident. Depending on the severity of the accident, the spinal cord injury can range anywhere from mild impairment to complete paralysis or even death. The spinal cord plays a critical role in communication with the brain and the motor function in the body so when it is injured, the brain can lose its full ability to send its messages throughout the body.

To recognize if you have a spinal cord injury, here are some symptoms that may appear right after the accident:

  • Pressure in your back, neck, or head
  • Lack of coordination
  • Weakness in certain parts of your body
  • Loss of feeling in hands, fingers, feet or toes
  • No control of bladder or bowel
  • Walking imbalance
  • Impaired breathing
  • Twisted neck or spine

Here are symptoms that may appear sometime after the accident:

  • Loss of movement in a limb or an entire area of the body
  • Lack of ability to feel heat, cold, or touch
  • No control of bladder or bowel
  • Reflexes or muscle spasms that are irregular
  • Coughing and difficulty in breathing

When someone is in a motorcycle accident and suffers a spinal cord injury, chances are, they are going to need to go to the emergency room or see their doctor. Depending on the severity, medical bills can rack up along with treatments or medication, costing the patient thousands of dollars in the end. This is why it is important that when you are in a motorcycle accident, you consult Nathan C. Cooley to see what you are entitled to.
