Spinal/ back injuries can have an extremely damaging impact on your life. Your backbone is the most important bone in the body. Not only does it help you maintain your position as well as allow you to move freely, but it is also an important component of the nervous system.
Most spinal/ back injuries take at least six months to recover. Even then, the doctor may prescribe some more bed rest if the pace of recovery is slow. The outcome of being involved in a serious accident that leads to a back injury is pretty damning: you may find yourself bound to a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
Your spinal cord plays a crucial role in the delivery of neural messages from the brain all over the body. All electrical impulses and muscular responses are sent straight through the spinal cord. That’s why spinal injuries can be so harmful. If the spinal cord is damaged, the connection between your brain and parts of your body may be cut. As a result, you may not be able to move at all.
It is a serious, debilitating injury that can lead to a lot of mental and physical trauma. If you have received a spinal injury due to the negligence of another party, you should immediately seek legal and medical assistance. Schiller Law Offices in Indianapolis have dealt with a variety of such cases in the past. We will assign an experienced injury lawyer to your case.
What Happens Next?
If you have received such a serious injury, the first step is to get medical treatment. The doctor’s opinion is crucial in calculating the amount of compensation. If the doctor says that you will recover within the next six months, the injury lawyer will calculate the compensation by incorporating the loss of income for six months. However, if it is a permanent disability, the injury attorney will look for a greater settlement.
Once the doctor’s opinion is on record, the injury attorney will get to work.
