If the spinal cord is damaged, these messages may be interrupted or may stop entirely at the point of injury. Depending on the location of the injury along the spinal cord, the victim may suffer from paraplegia or quadriplegia, paralysis of both the legs or paralysis of the arms and legs, respectively. Part or the entire trunk may be affected as well.

Auto accidents are a leading cause of catastrophic injuries throughout Riverside and the surrounding areas. This includes all types of motor vehicle accidents, including
trucking accidents and
bicycle accidents. Additional causes may include
workplace accidents, falls,
defective products and intentional wrongdoing such as assaults and attacks. In any of these situations, a victim may be at risk of sustaining one or more serious injuries that will have a significant impact on his or her life. It is due to the consequences of a catastrophic injury that a victim has the right to take legal action against the responsible party, in the form of a personal injury claim.
In filing a personal injury claim in Riverside, the victim will be able to seek "compensatory damages" that are awarded to help an injury victim rebuild his or her life to a similar position or situation as before the injury occurred.
