A Spinal Cord Injury Changes a Life Forever
The idea of a spinal cord injury often goes along with the idea of trauma caused by truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, diving accidents or freak accidents such as the horse-riding accident that injured and ultimately killed actor Christopher Reeve. In fact, many spinal cord injuries do come about through sudden, violent accidents such as these.
In other cases, however, a spinal cord injury may be the result of a medical error, or you may have a serious back injury that develops over time through heavy labor. Whatever the cause of a spinal cord injury, the victim and his or her family face formidable challenges in the short term as well as long term.
A spinal cord injury changes a life forever. A victim is likely to need lifelong personal care as well as equipment: adaptive medical devices, home remodeling and outfitted vans, for example. A spinal cord injury victim may require vocational rehabilitation — or be unemployable.
With monetary compensation, a spinal cord injury victim can adapt to a more limited way of life with dignity and hope.
