Living with chronic pain is a burden that few people in California really understand. Unfortunately, you are all too familiar with the physical and emotional burden of having a spinal cord injury. What makes it even worse is that it was not even your fault, and now you are struggling to get help.
Car, bike and skiing accidents are some of the most common ways in which people suffer spinal injuries. Medical malpractice can also leave patients who were seeking healing with long term or even irreversible injuries. The main thing that ties these and other accidents together is someone else’s negligence or recklessness; for example, a texting driver or a distracted surgeon.
No two spinal injuries are exactly alike, but you are probably dealing with many of the same problems as other victims. Chronic pain is only the tip of the iceberg and requires its own unique approach to ongoing management. Loss of motor function is common and can drastically affect a person’s quality of life. You might have already had to limit your daily activities or make changes and accommodations to your home.
Losing your ability to physically move through the world as you once did is hard, and getting the compensation you deserve can be key to transitioning to your new normal. This might involve filing a personal injury lawsuit against the party believed to be responsible for your spinal cord injury.
