Accidents involving spinal cord injuries are life-changing. People suffering from such injuries undergo changes that completely alter their lives. Do not assume that injuries from an accident are “too small” to deserve professional attention. Many people do not treat or seek medical attention for what they consider to be “small injuries.” Very often, people dismiss a back injury as being too “small” to need treatment. In reality, many “small” injury symptoms are indicative of serious spinal injuries. For example, symptoms from whiplash due to a car accident can diminish quickly with pain medication. However, if the underlying nerve damage is left untreated by a professional, whiplash injuries often result in very serious spinal injuries causing multiple forms of disability.
It is important that you seek medical assistance right after your accident, especially if it was a car, truck or motorcycle accident. Obtain an attorney immediately because serious spinal injuries are common in those types of collisions. Never make the assumption that you do not have a spinal cord injury. Contact the correct health care professionals to make certain that your concerns regarding spinal injuries are diagnosed by someone with experience.
