Spinal Cord Injuries
Motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, and slips and falls can result in devastating spinal injuries that cause more than chronic and enduring back pain. Spinal injuries can lead to urinary tract complications, blood pressure changes, ulcers, and a loss of overall mobility. Depending on the severity and location of the injury, the extent of harm and the cost and length of treatment vary greatly, but the first year following the trauma is almost always the most important for recovery. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury and you have not contacted a personal injury lawyer yet, it’s crucial that you do so. You may be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering, long-term care, and more.
