A spinal cord injury can result in damage to the ligaments, vertebrae, or the discs of the spinal column. Traumatic spinal cord injuries are typically caused by a blow to the spinal column that causes the vertebrae to become fractured, dislocated, compressed, or crushed. Knife and gunshot wounds can also cause a traumatic spinal cord injury. Non-traumatic spinal cord injuries are caused by disease and conditions such as cancer, arthritis, infections, and inflammation. Our Ohio personal injury lawyer explains further below.
