The vast majority of spinal cord injuries happen in auto accidents, but they can also happen at work or at home.
Victims of spinal cord injuries often experience a drastic shift in their quality of life, and they may require constant care.
A spinal cord injury can be extremely painful, especially those involving disk herniation or bulging disks, and the most serious could result in partial paralysis (paraplegia) or total paralysis (quadriplegia.)
Paralysis is a life-altering injury, and one that may require additional services beyond the initial medical treatment. When these events happen, it is critical that victims do everything they can to protect themselves, their families and get the care they need.
If you or someone you know has suffered a spinal cord injury, compensation may be available to help you with a number of necessary items including:
- Mobility aides (wheelchairs etc)
- Home modifications to widen hallways and doorways or to install chairlifts / elevators
- Specialized vans or family vehicles
- Attendant care or household help if required
