Injuries To The Back And Spinal Cord
Back and spinal injury are fairly common after accidents. Any injury to the back can cause problems to every other part of the body.
At Linley Welwood we deal with back injuries of differing magnitude, from soreness that eventually clears up to complete paralysis.
We can help you explain your injuries, quantify your losses and get compensation for your expenses.
The Back’s Central Importance To Your Body
Because the back is connected to every other part of your body, with a spinal cord injury you are liable to experience:
- Pain, numbness and tingling
- Difficulty with motor skills
- Emotional difficulties made worse by chronic pain and disability
You may need a great deal of time off work and may have difficulty resuming your life as it was before. You may even need help with your home and family, and with your personal care.
One of the services we can provide is access to back injury specialists. You may have access to your general practitioner and any specialists he or she refers to, but many of our clients are unaware of the full range of medical services available with minimal wait times after an accident — if you know where to look for them.
Whether you are suffering from whiplash or complete paralysis, we can connect you to trusted rehabilitation specialists, physiatrists, orthopedic surgeons, or whoever is most appropriate to your situation. They can help you regain as much mobility as possible and adapt as much as possible to your abilities.
