Every year over 7,000 Americans suffer from some form of spinal injury. The majority of these cases are caused by fully avoidable accidents or even deliberate assaults. Injuries to the spinal column can lead to a variety of physical problems, including neck pain, headaches, arm pain and soft tissue strains. Furthermore, because the spine (also called the backbone or vertebral column) encases the many nerves composing the spinal column, spinal injuries can have extremely painful and even debilitating effects on the central nervous system.
If you, or someone you love, have suffered from a spinal injury caused by another party’s negligent behavior, you may have grounds for legal action. There is no reason for you to take on the financial, emotional and health-related costs of major injuries alone.

Causes of Spine Injuries
Spinal damage is often caused by some sort of trauma to the backbone. This trauma can be inflicted by diving accidents, falls and even medical malpractice. However, the leading cause of traumatic spine injuries is motor vehicle accidents.
Depending on the location and severity of the damage, car crashes can result in a wide variety of medical conditions, from whiplash to quadriplegia. These conditions can all carry social as well as medical consequences for their victims. Even whiplash, often considered a minor injury, can lead to long-lasting and even severe pain, paralysis and psychological problems.
No one should have to take on the consequences of another party’s error. This is especially true concerning spinal damage, which is one of the gravest injuries a person can suffer.
