Car accidents are an all too common cause of injury in the United States, and can leave victims with debilitating injuries that could become chronic and hinder them for the rest of their lives.
One of the worst possible resulting injuries from a car accident is a neck injury, with damage to the spinal cord. Spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis or even death, and any type of a spinal cord injury is never to be taken lightly and is always a serious matter.
After a child spinal cord injury, many immediate medical measures must be taken to assure the least harmful outcome. Blood pressure must be stabilized, and steroid treatment must be administered to quell the swelling of the spinal cord, followed by a number of tests including a CT scan and an MRI. Other tests, such as finger pricks and light contact will be made, to see if you have feeling or movement on any part of the body, and extremities.
Once stable, recovery from the injury begins, and typically the most important time period in a spinal cord injury recovery is the first 6 months. It is imperative that you put forth all of your strength and will power towards recovering from your traumatic injury, and leave all of the negotiations and settlements in the proper hands.
