September is Spinal Cord Awareness Month and many organizations and communities are working together to raise awareness about spinal cord injuries. Each year thousands of Americans experience a spinal cord injury. These injuries are devastating and can happen to anyone at any time.
Attorney Chad McLain of Graves McLain recently appeared on Good Day Tulsa to discuss ways to avoid a spinal cord injury.
Chad spoke about the main causes of spinal cord injuries including:
- Motor Vehicle Crashes
- Sports-Related Injuries
A spinal cord injury can happen due to an unexpected accident, so as a precaution please always be careful and try not to participate in high-risk behavior.
Chad explains one should, “be aware of the things that can cause spinal cord injuries. The same thing we talk about when preventing vehicle crashes can be done to prevent spinal cord injuries.”
- Do not text and drive
- Don’t drink & drive
- Wear your seatbelt
- Don’t speed
- Don’t look down at your mobile device while walking or crossing the street
