Accidents Can Severely Damage Your Spine
Spinal cord damage can be a result of a car accident, work accident or another situation. It could involve either an incomplete spinal cord injury, which means the spine was partially severed, or a complete spinal cord injury, which means a total sever.
There are many different types of spinal cord injuries, including:
- Slipped disk, also known as herniated disk
- Fractured vertebrae
- Fractured pelvis
- Vertebrae displacement, such as retrolisthesis or cauda equina syndrome
Depending on where the injury is located, you might suffer a range of complications. Because the spinal cord contains vital nerves, it is possible to lose feeling or function in different areas of the body.
How A Spinal Cord Injury Could Change Your Life
The early days after your accident will help determine whether you will walk again anytime soon. You may face paraplegia or quadriplegia, depending on which part of your spine was injured. You may require surgery, lengthy hospitalization, extensive physical and occupational therapy, and durable medical equipment for your home.
You may walk with a walker afterward or you may require a motorized wheelchair. You may need a lift to move you from your bed to chair and from your chair to bathtub each day. You may need personal care attendants to help you with daily personal activities like preparing and eating meals, bathing and getting dressed.
No matter what kind of medical care or treatment you need, our team at Glenda Mitchell Law Firm is dedicated to securing it for you. We stay up-to-date on the latest developments in the medical world to make sure we help our clients decide the best options.
