Symptoms Of Back And Spinal Cord Injuries

Back and spinal cord injuries may not reveal themselves right away. What you think could be just some soreness after a car accident or a fall could be much worse. That is why it is so important to see a doctor as soon as possible after an accident.

At Boulton Law Group in Brownsburg, Indiana, we have seen many cases impaired because people did not go to a doctor thinking their injuries were not that serious. What could appear to be soreness from whiplash could leave you unable to get out of bed in a few weeks.

These Are The Warning Signs Of A Serious Injury

Spinal cord injuries can range in severity, from relatively minor to herniated discs to total paralysis. Early evaluation by a doctor can go a long way in preventing long term spinal cord damage.

You need to be on the lookout for these warning signs:

  • Severe pain or a feeling of pressure in the back or neck
  • Loss of feeling in the hands or feet or the inability to feel hot or cold
  • Numbness or tingling anywhere in the body
  • Difficulty keeping your balance or walking
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Noticeable changes to your reflexes or any muscle spasms
  • Limited ranges of motion in your neck or back

A spinal cord injury could keep you out of work for good and require multiple surgeries, physical therapy and installing adaptive equipment, like a wheelchair ramp, in your home. Pursuing the compensation you truly need will require having an experienced lawyer on your side like Matt Boulton, who relentlessly fights the insurance companies for his clients.
