Some car accidents that occur on Connecticut roads result in devastating injuries to those involved. One type of injury that falls into that category is spinal injuries. An injury to the spine can result in lifelong changes for those who experience it.
Symptoms of a spinal cord injury include an unnatural positioning of the head, pain or stiffness in the neck area, unconsciousness, the loss of control of the bowels or bladder, signs of shock and headache. In addition, tingling or spreading numbness in the extremities and the inability to move legs or arms are perhaps the best known symptoms of this serious medical condition.
