Common Causes of Paralysis Injuries
Although some people develop paralysis from a congenital condition, many people lose the ability to move because of a traumatic spinal cord injury to the neck or back or because of medical malpractice. Whether your spinal cord gets severed from a car accident, an assault, or a surgery, your life will never be the same.
Three Things to Do After a Paralyzing Injury
Every situation is different, so please consider these three things as suggestions. You should always do what makes sense in your case.
Get Immediate Medical Attention
Getting professional medical care can make the difference between life and death or between spending the rest of one’s days as a paraplegic instead of a quadriplegic. If you suspect a spinal injury, lie as still as possible and have someone call for an ambulance. Moving around can worsen a “bruised” or partially severed spinal cord into an entirely severed one.
Talk to a Lawyer
Paralysis injury claims usually involve significant financial losses. The massive potential liability gives insurance companies the motivation to defend against these cases aggressively. The insurers have teams of people whose job is to find ways to deny your claim for compensation. It can help to have an Oviedo paralysis injury lawyer on your side. The Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine offers free consultations. You can call us today at 1-800-747-3733.
Stay Off of Social Media
Regardless of your privacy settings, an insurance company might be able to get access to your social media accounts. According to the American Bar Association, something that seemed innocent at the time could get taken out of context to hurt your compensation claim. You might want to ask your lawyer how to handle social media postings made by yourself, your family, and your friends until your case gets resolved.
