A Closer Look at Spinal Cord Injuries Following Cincinnati Semi-Truck Accidents

Just like any other day, you may have gotten behind the wheel of your car to drive to work, but this time you were involved in a serious Cincinnati auto accident with a semi-truck. You were badly hurt and taken away by an ambulance only to discover that your head, chest, and spine sustained serious injuries. 

When an accident of this magnitude occurs, a victim may suffer the following: 

  • Broken ribs
  • Weakness of the limbs
  • Partial paralysis
  • Permanent paralysis 
  • Immobility
  • Spinal cord injury

When a body is battered from top to bottom and a spinal cord injury is suffered, the biggest concern for the victim is total, permanent paralysis. An MRI of the spinal cord will show if there is compression of the nerves, which can sometimes be helped with decompression surgery; however, sometimes, multiple surgeries and physical therapy may not be able to help a victim regain the ability to walk. 

If a Cincinnati semi-truck accident caused by a negligent trucker caused your serious injuries, you should not be left to suffer the consequences alone. When another driver fails to see the stop sign, runs the red light, or swerves into your lane because he was texting or drowsy at the wheel, he should be held accountable for his actions.
