A spinal cord injury is one of the most devastating events you can experience. Such an injury can result in partial or complete paralysis. Of course, this changes every aspect of your life, affecting your day to day activities, your social life, relationships, and your independence. You may be unable to continue in your career and have to give your goals and change course completely. The initial shock and emotional upset are accompanied by the necessity of learning a whole new way of operating. This can be physically and emotionally draining and distract from all else for a long period.
Spinal cord injuries may occur as a result of a slip and fall, swimming pool accident, car accident, or various other events including medical malpractice.
