When to Seek Help
You’ve been injured in an accident and the pain gets worse every day. At first it was a stiff neck or creaky back, but now it hurts to turn your head, perform simple tasks such as sleeping or sitting down and slight movements are now causing you extreme pain. Even if you don’t initially suspect serious injuries, the sooner you can get examined by a doctor, the better. Early intervention can mean the difference between a speedy recovery and a long (and expensive) return to health.
Spinal Cord Injury: Facts and Stats
Our spinal cords are 18 inches long and made up of tiny, delicate nerve cells. Any injury to a person’s back or neck can have devastating consequences ranging from lingering soreness and pain to the life-altering conditions of partial or full paralysis. According to research by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, each year approximately 12,500 Americans experience a serious spinal cord injury.
Back and neck injuries can be long term, meaning massive medical bills and even, in the case of paralysis, a lifetime of specialized care. In severe cases, the cost of medical treatment in the first year alone can be more than $1 million, a number that excludes lost wages, lost productivity and other related damages. For many accident victims, having a neck injury attorney file a personal injury lawsuit is the only way to gain some measure of control over their financial future.
