Did you know that car crashes are the main cause of SCI?

You may know that car crashes are among the leading causes of traumatic brain injury, but they are also the primary cause of spinal cord injury, or SCI.

Car accidents cause trauma to our bodies, and SCI commonly results from trauma. However, as serious as it is, SCI is not always evident at the time of a vehicle crash.

About SCI

The spinal cord transmits impulses from the brain to other parts of the body. It can sustain injury from a sudden blow that either dislocates or fractures the vertebrae. There are two kinds of SCI: complete and incomplete. As the word “complete” implies, the victim will lose all feeling below the injury site. In an “incomplete” situation, some functioning still exists below the injury site. Symptoms may include loss of mobility, loss of the ability to feel heat or cold, an intense stinging sensation, difficulty breathing or lack of bladder control, among other signs.

A look at treatment

Treatment that includes medication and prostheses can help regenerate nerve cells or improve the function of undamaged cells. Electrical stimulation by prosthetic devices can restore breathing, bladder or other functions for people who have suffered certain levels of SCI. However, currently, doctors cannot completely reverse spinal cord damage. 

Facing the future

Tests used to diagnose a spinal cord injury include CT scans, MRIs, a myelogram X-ray and somatosensory evoked potential testing to find out whether nerve signals can pass through the spinal cord. These expensive tests add to the treatment plan, which, during the first year of injury alone, could range from $300,000 to one million dollars. Rehabilitation for SCI is a long process, one that may last a lifetime. How will you manage if you are the victim of a vehicle accident that left you with a spinal cord injury? This is the time to explore your legal options and rely on an experienced advocate who will work diligently to secure full and fair financial compensation on your behalf.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
