Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries

If you suffer any amount of damage to your spinal cord, it could cause immediate and permanent disability. The spinal cord does not naturally heal itself as fast as other body parts and, in many cases, it will not be able to heal at all. Any consequences you experience may be a burden for the rest of your life.

If you suffer a back or spine injury, you may experience:

  • Difficulty sitting without pain
  • Sleeplessness due to chronic soreness
  • Balance issues
  • Paralysis (total or partial)

When you file a personal injury claim, you will need to make certain that it accounts for your damages and expenses, both what you already accrued and what you could need to pay years from now. We are thorough when we review medical files to ensure the compensation you receive will take care of you, no matter how long the spine injury lasts.

Always Seek Medical Attention

If you have been in an accident and feel any sort of pain in your back or neck, you should see a trusted physician right away. Many spinal cord injuries begin as subtle pains or soreness but develop into much worse conditions if not treated or diagnosed. Remember that any medical records you get during a checkup can be used in your injury case so keep copies of them for yourself.

Symptoms that could be indicative of a spinal cord injury could include:

  • Pain when lying on your side
  • Cannot move shoulders without aches
  • Frequent headaches
  • Persistent cracking noises when moving back

Don’t Take a Chance with Your Health

Putting off your lawsuit may be akin to gambling with your own health. Tennessee statutes of limitations on personal injury cases will also prevent you from seeking any sort of compensation if too much time goes by.
