Life after a spinal cord injury

Poor road conditions, distracted driving and negligence are among the most common causes for crashes on Ohio roadways. While some accidents are minor fender benders handled through insurance companies quickly, some collisions result in catastrophic trauma to the body. If you or a loved one sustained injuries due to someone else’s negligence, there might be grounds for a claim. The legal team at Mezibov Butler often represents clients with life-altering damage to their spinal cord.

Neurology Reviews states that sudden, severe blows to the spinal cord can impair motor and sensory functions. This type of devastating injury affects all aspects of your life. Here are some tips to help you move forward after a severe spinal cord injury.

  • Seek professional help to overcome negative emotions. Grief, anxiety and anger are understandable after experiencing a severe injury. A counselor, psychologist or other mental health provider can help you learn to deal with persistent negative feelings and help you move on with the rest of your life.
  • Follow the rehabilitation plan created by your therapist or physician. The personalized treatment plan may include physical therapy sessions and regularly scheduled doctor’s appointments. This can help improve various aspects of sensory and motor functions.
  • Maintain social connections. Talk with friends and family, participate in social gatherings if possible and keep in touch with loved ones. Isolating yourself can be detrimental to your ongoing recovery and result in depression.

Spinal cord injuries affect your day-to-day life and often require significant funds for therapy, assistive devices and services. Compensation can help you get the treatment you need. Visit our webpage for more information on this topic.
