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.
While therapy for spinal cord injuries has improved, a cure is not yet available. That means that you will likely need ongoing medical care, medical supplies for treatment and other compensation to help you as you relearn to live your life with this new disability.
The person responsible for your injuries should have to cover the costs of your lost wages and other financial implications. After a spinal cord injury, you’ll likely need medical help including X-rays, MRIs, ultrasounds and others. These aren’t just one-time costs; you will need to have these on a regular basis to see how your body and organs are changing due to the impact of this injury.
Getting the right medical help can help prevent some serious side effects that are possible with spinal injuries. Pressure sores can be prevented by teaching you how to keep your body in motion. Exercise techniques can help you keep your body flexible and strong. Even learning about a balanced diet can help you manage your weight and health now that your abilities have been altered.
