Spinal Cord Injuries Archives

Setting the record straight on myths about spinal cord injuries

Like just about any physical disability, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths about spinal cord injuries (SCI) and the rehabilitation process for those who suffer them. Those mistaken beliefs can impact the ability of patients to recover and adjust to their new lives.

Helping you secure compensation following a spinal cord injury

While accidents happen all around us on a daily basis, many do not believe that they will be the one to fall victim to a serious accident. Unfortunately, a life-altering accident could suddenly occur, whether a person is traveling on the roadways, walking in a parking lot, at work, at a medical facility, or even at home. A spinal cord injury is considered to be one of the most serious injuries an accident victim can suffer, and when individuals in Nevada and elsewhere suffer such an injury, it is important that they understand what legal recourses they have against the negligent party or parties harmed them.

A look at rehabilitation after a spinal cord injury

It's a tragic reality that many car accident victims suffer catastrophic injuries. Amongst these injuries are those that affect the spinal cord. Spinal cord injury sufferers often have their lives turned upside down because they are usually left with some sort of permanent disability. This disability generally involves some sort of paralysis, which can place profound limitations on an individual's ability to carry on day-to-day. Fortunately, though, there is life after a spinal cord injury, and many victims find that they can still live full, happy lives.

Progress and setbacks in spinal cord injury treatments

Scientists believe spinal cord injuries can cause paralysis when they sever a connection between the brain and the rest of the body. These severed connections don't heal the same way other parts of the body heal, and so doctors generally believe these injuries are permanent.

Legal assistance is imperative after Reno spinal cord injuries

Injuries can occur with any kind of accident in Reno. While the worst-case scenario after an accident is a fatality, people can suffer injuries that are so severe that they face paralysis and other long-term medical concerns. This is common with spinal cord damage. Whether it is a workplace accident or a car accident, those who have suffered damage to their spinal cord could find themselves unable to walk and in need of help to perform even the most basic tasks. Having legal advice after such an accident is imperative.
