Farmington Hills Spinal Cord Injury Attorney

A spinal cord injury may be one of life's cruelest twists of fate. In moments, a healthy, active, vibrant person becomes disabled and dependent on others for care. The degree of severity of a spinal cord injury will depend on where on the spine the injury occurred. Location of the injury will determine whether the person will be quadriplegic or paraplegic. The life cycle of a spinal cord injury typically goes through phases:

  • A traumatic accident: a car crash or a workplace accident, for example
  • Emergency care, perhaps including surgery to stabilize the neck and/or back
  • Recovery from the trauma and the surgery, perhaps with a respirator and feeding tube in place
  • Physical therapy beginning as soon as possible and ongoing, perhaps for years or indefinitely
  • Occupational therapy to encourage and improve independent activities despite disability
  • Rehabilitation, including learning to operate a motorized chair and use various other adaptive technologies and devices
  • Transition to home, either one's previous home or a new, one-level, wheelchair-friendly dwelling, with personal care attendants scheduled to handle bathing and other necessary processes of daily life

During all these phases of recuperation from a spinal cord injury, the expense of medical bills is compounded by numerous special needs that must be paid for by the individual or family. A case manager will typically oversee development of a comprehensive treatment program after a life-changing catastrophic injury.
