When instances of medical malpractice happen, they can, unfortunately, result in serious spinal cord injuries, some of which lead to paralysis and wrongful death. The spine protects the spinal cord, a column of nerves along the middle of your back and neck, which sends vital motor and sensory information between the brain and nerves of the body. When the spinal cord is damaged, signals can no longer travel between the impacted nerves and the brain and may result in paraplegia, quadriplegia and other serious, irreparable harm.
