Many motorcycle accident victims who are in their 50s or older initially complain of neck or lower back pain. Only after being referred to a specialist, such as an orthopedic surgeon or neurologist, is it determined that they have a serious spinal cord injury, disc herniation or disc bulge. This is because it is sometimes difficult to distinguish between a soft-tissue neck or back injury, which causes spasms and pain to the cervical, thoracic or lumbar region, and a more serious spinal cord injury (SCI).
Pain symptoms from a cervical, thoracic or lumbar disc injury may include:
Normally the victim feels a radiating pain predominately on one side of the body, but it can also be bilateral. Seek a doctor's help immediately if you have any of these symptoms.
Spinal cord injury suffered in a motorcycle accident can sometimes lead to permanent paralysis. The degree of paralysis often depends on the region of the spine that is injured:
Anyone who suffers paralysis from a spinal cord injury will need significant long-term medical care and assistance. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve to get the medical care you need.
