Spinal cord injuries happen when a blow or other physical trauma impacts the spinal cord, preventing it from carrying nerve impulses between the brain and the rest of the body. Because the spinal cord is a primary source of nerve impulses, any damage or injury has the potential to affect numerous physical functions throughout the entire body.
Back injuries can include spinal cord damage, as well as other ailments including slipped discs and soft tissue damage. While back injuries that don't involve spinal cord damage or broken bones may not seem as serious, they can result in permanent problems, including chronic pain.

More About Spinal Cord Damage
Spinal cord damage is almost always considered very serious because the complications from a spinal cord injury have such a tremendous impact on the victim's health and normal bodily functions. The loss of movement and independence has a direct impact on the victim's quality of life, ability to earn an income, and even family relationships. For that reason, it is often said that spinal cord injuries affect an entire family, not just the victim.
Some of the more common complications of spinal cord damage include:
- Lost or reduced mobility
- Respiratory and heart problems
- Bladder / bowel dysfunction
- Urinary tract infections
- Spasticity; and
Because spinal cord damage is typically permanent, significant medical expenses are often involved. If you or a loved one suffer from a spinal cord injury, it's important to determine what caused your injury. If negligence was to blame, legal action is often the best option for securing the compensation necessary to pay for quality medical care and protect your family's future.
In Michigan, the law generally allows victims of spinal cord and back injury to file claims within two years after the discovery of an injury or condition. An extended time is permitted in some circumstances. If you or a family member were injured by the actions of a doctor or other health care professional, it's important to talk as soon as possible to an experienced attorney to understand your legal rights and options.
