Don’t take any chances when loved one suffers spinal cord injury

Don’t take any chances when loved one suffers spinal cord injury
On Behalf of Bradley, Drendel & Jeanney • Aug 25, 2016
After an unexpected accident, loved ones gather in hopes of hearing the news that the wounds are superficial and that the injured patient is expected to make a full recovery. While instances of these miracles do happen, most injured in a serious accident suffer some level of serious injuries that can affect them in both the short and long term. For most who suffer irreparable damage, like a spinal cord injury, life will never be the same. This is why loved ones of spinal cord injury sufferers should not leave their loved one’s fate to chance after a negligent party caused such a serious injury.

Spinal cord injuries are complicated and difficult to treat, let alone heal. Many spinal cord injury sufferers, who have been injured in instances like a car accident, never make a full recovery. Whether struggling with everyday pain or an inability to use arms or legs in connection with a partial or full paralysis diagnosis, spinal cord injury is serious business. It can take months, or even years of rehab over the course of the victim’s life to make some, if any, progress towards recovery.

While this may sound discouraging, do not be disheartened, especially if you believe there is a party who was negligent at the time of your loved one’s spinal cord injury. People have an obligation to uphold a certain level of care when behind the wheel of a vehicle. If the other party made an error in judgment that led to the accident, the injured party could possibly recover damages for medical bills, lost wages and other expenses. Bradley, Drendel and Jeanney take your loved one’s injuries seriously and will do everything in our power to ensure a full financial recovery for you and your family.

This was, no doubt, a life-changing event for you and your family. Do not allow it to define your family in a negative way. There are opportunities that will present themselves now and directly after the accident that can help determine how the rest of this scenario will play out. Take the opportunities presented to you and your family, even if it’s just a silver lining after such a tremendous accident.
