Spinal Cord Injuries in a Car Accident
Contact Silver Injury Law if You’ve Suffered Spinal Cord Injuries in a Car Accident
If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you know that the pain you can suffer is immeasurable – but this pain is made infinitely worse if they include spinal cord injuries from a car accident. Whether your injuries include fractures, bruises, or dislocations, they can result in pain, immobility, paralysis, and even death.
What are some of the most common orthopedic injuries after an accident?
No matter how severe, or minor, you think your injuries are, the end result – pain and suffering – is always the same. Here are just a few symptoms you may experience as a result of this injury:
- Loss of strength: you may find that your strength has been severely compromised, if not completely eliminated, as a result of this injury. Something that once required no effort – lifting up a small box, for example – on your part can suddenly prove laborious, and if you manage to actually perform the task, you may find it causes you more pain and suffering than anything else.
- Loss of mobility: if you should happen to lose mobility in one of your limbs – or, worse yet, on one or both sides of your body – you may find it a worse predicament than if you’d simply lost some of your strength. And that’s not all: loss of mobility means that you will require extended care, a medication regimen, and a wheelchair to perform even the most basic of functions – all of which will severely compromise the quality of your life.
- Loss of reflex control: things like breathing, feeling sensations of hot and cold, and bowel functions are all things that are controlled by reflexes. However, if you’ve suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of a car accident, you may find – depending on where, on the spine, the impact occurred – breathing, feeling sensations, and bowel functions to be difficult, and you may find that you’ve otherwise lost control of your basic functions.
These are just a few of the many symptoms of a severe spinal cord injury resulting from a car accident. And though advancements in surgery can alleviate many of these symptoms, it is still a traumatic event to go through, and it will severely compromise the quality of the remainder of your life. In addition, surgery and treatments for this injury costs money, and you will experience a loss of income as a result of being unable to work due to your spinal cord injury from a car accident. For these reasons, and more, you will need to enlist the aid of an experienced personal injury attorney like the ones you will find at Silver Injury Law to get the money you deserve.
