Did you sustain a spinal cord injury? Call The Perecman Firm, P.L.L.C.!
The bundle of nerves running down the back is called a spinal cord. It is crucial to the body’s communications between the brain and extremities. Unfortunately, serious accidents can cause spinal cord damage that could leave a person facing a lifetime of immobility. It is important after any kind of accident to seek medical attention to determine what kind of damage has been done. Spinal cord injuries can be caused by numerous types of accidents such as whiplash in a vehicle accident or a fall from heights on a construction site. No matter the situation, knowing what causes a spinal cord injury and what can happen is important. Contact The Perecman Firm for a free consultation today!
A spinal cord accident is usually caused by any of the following situations:
- Displaced bone fragments
- Dislocated vertebrae
- Fractured vertebrae
- Ligament bruise or tear into spinal cord tissue
- Disc material rupturing spinal cord tissue
- Bone fragments compress or tear spinal cord tissue
How to Manage Living With An Injury to the Spinal Cord
While there are some spinal cord injuries that can completely heal, there are others that can leave someone paralyzed. When the injury-causing accident was a result of someone else’s negligence, legal action should be taken in order to help cover the costs associated with these types of injuries. Unfortunately, a spinal cord injury that results in paralysis can change so many aspects of someone’s life. It is vital to make sure you have peace of mind during all of these changes.
If someone is paralyzed after a spinal cord injury, they may have to equip their home or vehicles with special equipment to help accommodate the new lifestyle. Because the individual will most likely require a wheelchair, a special van may be needed or special equipment to help the person get up and down stairs in the home. These should be costs that are afforded to the family if they can successfully file a personal injury claim against the negligent party.
