Spinal Cord Injuries and Dallas Car Accident Victims

Spinal Cord Injuries and Dallas Car Accident VictimsIn the hours and days after an accident, your life and the lives of your family members seem to be on hold. After the initial shock wears off, you are left dealing with serious injuries, injuries that you never dreamed of having. One of the most devastating injuries I see with Dallas car accident victims are injuries to the spinal cord.

Spinal cord injuries, depending on their severity and location on the spine, have the potential to forever alter the injury victim’s life. Some of the complications associated with a spinal cord injury include:

  • Loss of function below the injury site
  • Loss of bowel and bladder control
  • Pressure sores
  • Extreme blood pressure changes
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Urinary tract infections

These complications require you and your family to make major changes to your lives. While the news of the injury sinks it, it can be impossible, imagining how different your life is now.

The True Cost of a Spinal Cord Injury

It can be hard, looking back at how “normal” your life was before the spinal cord injury, how easy. Finding a “new normal” can be a challenge. One thing that can help is ensuring that you have the money you need to pay for:

  • Ongoing medical care
  • Physical therapy
  • Nursing help in the home
  • Rehabilitation
  • Home modifications
  • Wheelchair accessible vehicles
  • Wheelchairs and other assistive devices

Fortunately, there are many modern treatments and assistive devices that can help spinal cord injury victims live a full and rewarding life. But these devices and therapies are not cheap. How can you be sure that the insurance company is offering you the money you need now and in the future?

As an experienced Dallas auto accident lawyer I implore you to never sign insurance documents without the advice of your attorneyDoing so can seriously limit the amount of compensation you receive. Time and again I have seen accident victims left without the money they need.
