Spinal Injuries Resulting From Car Accidents
There are different levels of spinal cord injury. Some results of car accident spinal injuries are:
- Motor Difficulties
- Bowel & Urologic Difficulties
- Sexual and Reproductive Difficulties
Severe spinal injury, as is the case in a cervical, lumbar or thoracic spinal injury, can result in life-altering physical disability for the victim. These disabilities include: loss of bowel or bladder function, loss of respiratory function, loss of blood pressure regulation and loss of motor function. In addition to the terrible physical pain caused by traumatic spinal injury, there also comes a terrible emotional pain.
Victims who are paralyzed become severely depressed and feel helpless. That’s why spinal injury is among the most devastating because of the toll they take on a person and their family. Treatments will be ongoing and expensive, which can cause tremendous strain.
An injury resulting in paralysis is not only devastating physically and emotionally, but financially, as you or your family member may be unable to return to your prior career or place of employment. This often can result in a substantial loss of income for your family. Although you may become eligible for disability benefits, these are not likely to completely replace your prior income.
