An accident that has resulted in a spinal injury or a spinal cord injury can change’s a victims life as they know it. Your spine is what keeps your body moving and upright. Your spinal cord is the system that transfers the messages from your brain to the rest of your body. If an accident has caused damage to your spinal cord then you could suffer problems in other parts of your body, such as loss of movement below the waist, loss of movement in the arms, loss of sensation all over your body.
Common causes of spinal injuries:
- Car accidents
- Acts of violence – fights, physical attacks
- Sporting accidents
- Alcohol related incidents
In the UK every year, there are around 1,200 people paralysed from a spinal cord injury. Once paralysis is happened your life will change dramatically.

How your Spine Works
You spine is the supporting structures for your entire body. It connects your head, neck, shoulders, arms, pelvis and legs. It’s made up of bones that connect in a vertical structure. Your spine is flexible due to the elastic ligaments and spinal discs within the spine; this allows you to move freely.
Many people suffer from back problems because evolution has made us humans walk upright instead of on all fours like other mammals. Common causes of back pain are:
- Lifting an object incorrectly
- Hunching over when sitting, walking or driving
- Over stretching
- Physical activities such as weight lifting or tennis
- Being overweight
- Stress can cause muscles to tighten and spasm
- Repetitive actions and movements i.e. gardeners can often suffer back problems due to their repetitive actions at work
If your working environment is causing you back problems or your employers haven’t provided a proper programme to teach employees have to lift correctly then you may be entitled to claim compensation.
In very serious accidents the victim may become paralysed. This can be devastating to the victim and the victims’ families’ life. There are two types of paralysis
1. Localised – one part of the face or body, such as one hand, becomes paralysed.
2. Generalised – a larger part of the body becomes paralysed such as both legs or from the neck down.
There are different categories of paralysis. NHS.com describes these in medical terms:
- Monoplegia – where one limb is paralysed
- Hemiplegia – where the arm and leg on one side of the body are paralysed
- Paraplegia – where both legs and sometimes the pelvis and some of the lower body are paralysed
- Tetraplegia – where both the arms and legs are paralysed (also known as quadriplegia)
How Paralysis Can Affect a Victims Life
Victims of spinal injuries will have their lives changed forever. Once the diagnosis of paralysis has been given the victim and their family have to begin to adapt their lives completely. Things that may change in your life after a spinal injury accident:
- you may have to give up work
- you may need a full or part time carer
- a loved one may have to give up work
- homes may need to be altered
- you may struggle with depression
- medical treatment will be needed
- wheelchairs will have to be bought
- Ordinary bodily function, such as urinating, may alter
