Lumbar Spine Injury

Lumbar Spine Injury Lawyers

Being injured in an accident of any sort has the potential for serious, life altering consequences. A very serious type of injury is a spinal cord, or spinal column, injury. Car accident, truck accidents, slips and falls and many other types of accidents can induce injury to various segments of the spinal cord. One of these segments that is prone to injury is the lumbar spine, or L-Spine. The lumbar spine is the lowermost portion of the spinal column and has 5 vertebra: L1-L5. The lumbar spine and lumbar vertebrae innervate and regulate function of parts of the lower body and trunk. Injury to the lumbar spine can result in difficulty walking, controlling movement in the hips and possibly paralysis. If you, or a loved one, have suffered an injury to the lumbar spine area you should contact a personal injury lawyer handling spinal column injury claims immediately.

Lifelong Consequences Of Lumbar Spine Injury

Suffering a lumbar spine injury can impact your daily life forever. Unfortunately, many people never fully recover from a spinal cord injury. Injury to the lumbar vertebrae may effect:

  • Your ability to walk
  • The curvature of your spine
  • Thigh flexion, adduction and abduction
  • Extension of the leg at the hips
  • Extension of the leg at the knees
  • Flexion of the leg at the knees
  • Flexion and extension of the toes
  • The extent and severity of your lumbar spine injury is directly related to which vertebrae were injured. A complete spinal cord injury involves complete loss of function below the effected area. An incomplete spinal cord injury involves only partial loss of function below the effected vertebrae.
