Getting in a car accident is a common way to receive a spinal cord injury due to the brute force and sudden impact the body takes when an automobile wreck is experienced. Having this personal injury occur in your neck or back can cause immediate paralysis that can't be cured. Spinal cord injuries affect an individual physically, mentally and emotionally.
Another catastrophic injury that can occur quickly includes nerve damage. This injury means the brain and nerves have problems transmitting and receiving signals from each other.
