Spinal Cord Injuries Archives

Compensation may be available after a spinal cord injury accident

Spinal cord injuries can be devastating, and in worst-case scenarios, life-threatening. They can limit the control Nevada residents have over their ability to move their bodies, and manage necessary bodily functions, such as respiration and reflex. The law firm of Bradley, Drendel & Jeanney has represented many victims of spinal cord injury accidents and advocated for their recovery of damages after suffering harm at the hands of others.

Spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis

The human body is composed of complex systems that must function together in order for a person to maintain his or her physical well-being. While many organs and systems play vital roles in managing the health of a person, the brain and associated nervous system are integral to almost every other process the body must complete. Reno residents who have been involved in vehicle crashes and other accidents may have sustained injuries to an important part of their bodies' nervous systems: the spinal cord.

Nevada spinal cord injuries can complicate a life immensely

"Grow a spine!" "Get some backbone!" These and other idiomatic expressions abound. But, while they may be useful in getting ideas across, often in a humorous way, actual spinal cord injuries are no laughing matter. It is an unfortunate fact that people cannot literally grow a spine, and when it is damaged in a car accident, medical malpractice incident, or other tragic situation, the result is that a victim's life is altered forever.

Some ways to avoid Nevada spinal cord injury

Several weeks ago, we discussed some of the statistics with regard to spinal cord injuries in the United States. Readers may remember that over 11,000 new spine injuries occur, on average, each year in the U.S. and that over one-quarter of one million people are currently living with the effects of such injuries. You may also recall that many of the victims of spine injuries are younger people, and they also happen to be disproportionately male.

Who is most likely to suffer Nevada spinal cord injury?

Most of us take our backs for granted. Even though practically every physical activity we engage in involves using our backs in one way or another, it is usually not something we think about until there's a problem. When such a problem occurs, however, it can be debilitating, even if it is relatively minor, such as a pulled muscle. Further, the involvement of a spinal injury can create untold expenses and pain for Nevada residents unlucky enough to be subject to them.

How can a spinal cord injury change a person's life?

There are a few areas in the body that are key to a person's health and well-being. While every part of the body is important, certain components are important to overall body function. One of those areas is the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves, protected by the vertebrae, that give the body movement and sensation.

Long-term care costs associated with spinal cord injury

Spinal cord injury is a complicated injury that is often elusive and difficult for medical professionals to cure or treat. That being said, spinal cord injury often requires special medical attention and long-term rehabilitation. Thousands are injured every year in a way that is classified as SCI or spinal cord injury. U.S. Veterans suffering a spinal cord injury for 2 years or longer were the focus of a study that aimed at determining cost associated with such injury.

Negligent driver may have caused loved one's spinal cord injury

Many drivers are unaware of the dangers that exist on Reno roads today. While normally aware and careful, some drivers may not grasp the potential for serious injury on Reno roads. The reality is that there are plenty of opportunities for a driver or a passenger to become seriously injured in a car accident. If a car accident causes a person to suffer a spinal cord injury, the injured person or their family may be wondering about how a potentially negligent driver could have affected the situation.

Accident resulting in spinal injury can be devastating, costly

After a shocking and unexpected injury to the spinal cord, there can be a lot of uncertainty associated with the past, present and future. As far as the past goes, people may wonder just what exactly happened to them or a loved one that caused such a life-altering spinal cord injury. In the present, the emotional toll can make even getting up in the morning difficult. When it comes to the future, people may be wondering what it looks like for the injured and their family moving forward after a spinal cord injury.

Don't take any chances when loved one suffers spinal cord injury

After an unexpected accident, loved ones gather in hopes of hearing the news that the wounds are superficial and that the injured patient is expected to make a full recovery. While instances of these miracles do happen, most injured in a serious accident suffer some level of serious injuries that can affect them in both the short and long term. For most who suffer irreparable damage, like a spinal cord injury, life will never be the same. This is why loved ones of spinal cord injury sufferers should not leave their loved one's fate to chance after a negligent party caused such a serious injury.
