Tragic crash in British Columbia cause for wrongful death

Some highways are treacherous and the scene of road fatalities more often than others. Excessive speed, or sometimes human error, can also be the cause of critical injury or loss of life. When several negatives converge, however, an entire family can perish. The immeasurable repercussions of such a tragedy can form the foundation for a wrongful death lawsuit.

Car accident: The challenge of calculating spinal injury damages

Victims of crashes nationwide, including in British Columbia, can pursue recovery of damages. This is if the car accident was caused by the negligence of another person. However, how do one know the monetary value of damages caused by spinal cord injuries – both short and long-term losses? This is particularly applicable to incomplete spinal injuries because it typically involves 'wait and see' scenarios. Most victims of such injuries are discharged from medical facilities before they have healed, and they then live in suspense to see how much they will recover.

Car accident: Spinal cord injuries cause other health problems

British Columbia residents might be interested in information recently published by Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports about the prevalence of spinal cord injuries. The report indicates that 46 percent of all spinal cord injuries result from vehicle accidents, and four in ten incidents that caused spinal cord injuries involved alcohol. When a car accident victim suffers an injury that causes paralysis, he or she will be susceptible to many other health problems.

Car accident: Spinal injuries can bring years of pain

A significant percentage of spinal injuries are caused by automobile accidents every year. Unfortunately, many people in British Columbia and elsewhere lack the knowledge to recognise the signs of spinal injuries after being involved in crashes. Some people refuse transport to a hospital after a car accident but then develop medical problems later.

You deserve compensation for a spinal cord injury

Living with a spinal cord injury is something no one wants to have to do; when you go from a fully functioning body to one that won't respond, it can not only be frustrating but result in the loss of your job or the ability to do the things you once loved.

Is there a cure for spinal injuries?

Despite advances in technology, there is no cure for a spinal cord injury. Once damage is done, it is difficult for the body to recover due to the way the nerves need to heal. Unfortunately, the spinal cord does not recover in the same way as other parts of the body, making any complete injuries likely to be permanent. Although a cure is not available at this time, those with spinal cord injuries can benefit from a number of potential treatments including rehabilitation, neuroprotection, assistive devices and others.

Suffering from a drunk driving crash? You deserve to be heard

If you've suffered a spinal cord injury after a crash with a drunk driver, you know that the pain can be intense and lasting. One injury that you might be dealing with is a thoracic or lumbar spinal fracture. This fracture can cause moderate to severe back pain, and it gets worse when you move, making recovering very difficult.

Robotics help the paralyzed walk again in study

Spinal cord injuries can be life-altering, but there is some good news in the world of technology. According to the news, robotics and virtual reality are being used to help heal spinal cord injuries. With landmark studies and high-tech solutions becoming more common, these kinds of treatments should be something you consider before you take a settlement. You'll want to make sure you have enough to try the treatments that can help you most.

Physiotherapy and spinal injuries: The goals for recovery

Spinal cord injuries can be complete or incomplete. With a complete injury, the nerves can't communicate with the brain any longer, and that means anywhere from the point of injury downward will be paralyzed. An incomplete injury is less severe but may result in weakness, some paralysis or pain. Chronic pain is not uncommon for those with incomplete injuries.
