Oklahoma Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers


When someone is injured, that person has a lot of obstacles to overcome and problems to deal with immediately, and regardless of the physical and psychological condition in which the victim exists, these challenges will not solve themselves. Injuries always create several problems, both foreseen and unforeseen, and this is a time when the injury victim needs help the most.


This is especially true of spinal cord injuries, as these are not only incredibly complicated in nature, but they are also the type of injuries that can last a lifetime and immediately change a person’s lifestyle permanently. Spinal cord injuries also, in many instances, remain a mystery to even the most highly trained medical professionals available, and this only adds to the stress of the situation for the person who now must deal with that spinal cord injury.


Problems Associated with a Spinal Cord Injury


Spinal cord injuries tend to create several ‘secondary’ problems that in many cases can cause more damage to the patient than the original injury. Below are a few examples of the types of difficulties presented by many spinal cord injuries.


Spinal Injury Location


The spinal cord is really a series of intricate bone fragments and nerve endings, and serves as the body’s ‘nerve center’ that controls functions such as movement, reactions, sensations and the like. When a particular portion of a spinal cord is injured, it can lead to negative results for different parts of the body, and it can be difficult to ascertain which problems will arise while the spinal cord injury is too recent. That’s because when a spinal cord injury occurs, the injured area experiences swelling, which must be alleviated before an accurate diagnosis can be made.


Long Term Health Issues - Spinal Cord Injury


If a person suffers a spinal cord injury that’s severe enough to lead to other injuries, those other injuries can be severe. For instance, a spinal cord injury can result in partial, total, temporary or permanent paralysis, and this paralysis can leave a patient vulnerable to infections and viruses. Many who have been paralyzed will be killed by such viruses as pneumonia because their musculature is unable to expel the virus.


Treatment For Spinal Cord Injuries


When a person’s spine is injured, it generally does not heal quickly. Many times it will not simply heal on its own, either, which is why patients generally need a sometimes long period of physical rehabilitation and treatment, which can be grueling on any patient.


Costs Associated with Spinal Cord Injuries


A spinal cord injury requires the attention of highly-trained specialists, cutting-edge technology and constant oversight. This can quickly lead to exorbitant medical costs that will far exceed any insurance policy payment limits, leaving the victim in a position of extreme financial peril.


Medical Help for Spinal Cord Injuries


Regardless of how the spinal cord injury occurred, you should seek immediate medical attention if you haven't done so already. A proper diagnosis and an accurate prognosis are both critical elements to your recovery and your potential spinal cord injury lawsuit claim.
