Spinal Cord Injuries Resulting from CT Car Accidents

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Sep 16, 2012 | 0 Comments

Our Connecticut Accident Lawyers are contacted by people who have suffered spinal cord injuries as a result of a car accident. Whether the accident happens in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven, Stamford, Waterbury, Enfield, Danbury, Hamden, Greenwich, Darien, New Canaan, New Britain, Willimantic, Norwalk, New London, Norwich, Stratford, Trumbull, Torrington, Wallingford, Wolcott, Cheshire, Ridgefield, New Milford, Newtown, Litchfield, Fairfield, East Haven or some other CT city or town, one very common injury in a car accident, truck crash or motorcycle injury case involves the head, neck, back and spinal cord. Some of the most significant injuries can involve the spinal column resulting in spinal cord injuries which can result in paralysis or even death.

It is therefore very important that an injury involving the spine be checked out as soon as possible.

After a spinal cord injury, many immediate medical measures must be taken to assure the least harmful outcome. Blood pressure must be stabilized, and diagnostic tests such as x-rays, CT scans or MRIs must be taken to fully understand the nature and extent of the spinal cord injury. 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.  Specialists may be called in to assist with your case which could include an orthopedic surgeon and a neurologist.

These injuries, depending upon the location and severity of the damage to the spine can take a significant amount of time to resolve themselves many times never returning to the pre-accident condition especially when spinal surgery is done along with the implantation of surgical hardware which might also have to be removed at some point. 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 follow all of your doctors instructions and adequately report any problems which you experience s you can get the proper care and  treatment.
