Roof Crush Accidents Create Heightened Risk for Spinal Cord Injury

Most drivers are aware of the phrase “barrel roll,” which refers to when a car rolls over multiple times due to an extreme collision. However, the barrel roll itself isn’t the real danger; each time a car rolls over in a crash, the likelihood of the car’s roof crushing in rises.  If a roof crush occurs, chances of a spinal cord injury rise as well. Learn more about how roof crush accidents can incur spinal cord injuries, and be sure to contact a representative at Gokal Law Group, Inc. to seek compensation for any injuries sustained in such a collision. 


Roof Crush Accidents & Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are severe, require extensive recovery time, and can easily lead to paralysis and death. It’s been found that nearly half of all spinal cord injuries are caused by auto collisions, many of which are roof crush accidents. Roof crush accidents are just what they sound like: they occur when a vehicle rolls upside down, crushing the roof with the car’s full weight. This kind of pressure is enough to deal extreme damage to a driver’s head, neck, and back, which subsequently affects spinal cord nerves. In extreme cases, victims can stand to lose movement and sensation in their legs, torso, chest, arms, and neck, depending on the extent of the accident.


The medical bills that arise from instances of paralysis can be astronomical, not to mention rehabilitation costs, ongoing care, and the medical equipment needed to support your recovery. However these victims are often unable to pay these medical expenses due to their inability to work with a spinal cord injury. Rather than spending tens of thousands to over one million dollars per year on spinal cord care, consider turning to an attorney with tenure in the roof crush personal injury space.
