The spine is made up of three different component groups—the vertebrae, intervertebral discs and nerves. The strong, bony skeletal group that one usually pictures when they think of the spine is the vertebrae. Next, the discs are made up of soft tissue and act as a cushion between the vertebrae. Think of them as “shock absorbers” for your spine. Finally, the nerves make up what is commonly referred to as the “spinal cord.” While injuries to vertebrae and spinal cord are certainly possible, disc injury is the most common result of the majority of auto accidents. Discs are further divided into three groups based upon where they are located along your spine. Cervical discs are located in your neck, thoracic discs are around your ribcage and lumbar discs constitute your lower back region. No matter where they are located along your spine, the composition of discs is the same, resembling a jelly donut, with a hard outer shell and gel-like core within. It is that gel-like core that allows for the flexibility and mobility of the spine, but only to a certain degree. In a car accident or other type of traumatic event, the body may move in a way that the spine was not designed to. The force created by this movement can lead to damages to the spinal discs. Being involved in an accident and suffering a spine injury in Chicago or the Suburbs may entitle you to thousands of dollars for your injuries, lost wages, medical bills and long term care.

Injured discs could them pinch the nerves that run along the spinal column in the spinal cord. This pressure leads to numbness, tingling and other sensory issues in the region of your body controlled by the agitated nerve. Because of this, the pain may be far from where the injury was sustained. For example, if you’ve suffered an injury to a cervical disc, you may feel no pain in your neck, but may experience extreme pain down the arms or even fingers.

Spinal column damage to the discs and vertebrae can also contribute to damage in the delicate nerves of the spinal cord, but not necessarily so. Broken vertebrae and herniated disc injuries are usually less severe than spinal cord injuries and have a greater chance of recovery. But even so, these injuries still require physical therapy and, in many cases, surgery.

If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident, the chance of suffering a spinal column injury is real and frightening. Trying to figure out your treatment options while recognizing your rights and benefits is a difficult process and you might find yourself needing the help of an experienced professional in dealing with insurance claims.
