Depending on the nature and extent of the trauma, spinal cord injuries can leave a person partially or completely paralyzed (paraplegia or quadriplegia) for the rest of their lives. In addition to causing complete or partial paralysis of the arms and/or legs, spinal cord injuries can cause long-term pain and suffering or the loss of sensation different bodily areas. If the damage occurs in the thoracic region, or the area formed by the rib cage, sternum, and thoracic vertebrae, it can cause limited mobility and sensitivity.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
The problem with traumatic brain injuries is that the physical signs and symptoms may not show up immediately after the event. These injuries can have long-lasting effects on a person’s ability to reason, their memory, their personality, or their temperament. These issues can create debilitating and oftentimes frustrating obstacles for a person who is recovering from their injuries. Some of the more common symptoms include:
- Dizziness and nausea
- Numbness or weakness on either side of the body
- Severe headaches or migraines
- Unusual fatigue and tiredness
While early intervention is the best course of action, the first year to year and a half are the most critical when it comes to maximizing your recovery. That is why it is important to get the compensation for damages to cover the cost of piling medical bills and other expenses including rehabilitation and future surgeries.
