Spinal Cord Injury 

A spinal cord injury can damage any portion of the spinal cord, from the neck down to the lower back. External trauma, like that sustained in a truck accident, is the leading cause of spinal cord injuries. Symptoms can include loss of sensory and motor function, paralysis, breathing problems, and bowel dysfunction.


The loss of a limb can be both physically and emotionally traumatic for an accident victim. After the surgery, a victim can experience pain and soreness. Additionally, there are many needed adjustments to daily life, as well as modifications to the home and vehicles.


Cuts from broken glass or other debris can require stitching and wound changes. Severe lacerations may also leave scars.
