How Spinal Cord Injuries are Treated after a San Diego Accident

When a serious San Diego accident results in grave damage, such as a spinal cord injury, the cost of medical services, rehabilitation, and sustained care can be tremendous. If you or someone you love suffered a spinal cord injury in an accident that was a result of someone else's negligence, contact a San Diego spinal cord injury lawyer to learn more about your options for collecting compensation.

Long-term Treatment of a Spinal Cord Injury

A steroid called methylprednisolone is usually administered in the first 8 hours after a spinal cord injury and can reduce the shock and damage to nerve cells and decrease the inflammation of the injury. While it's by no means a cure, it can induce mild improvement in limited functions.

Immobilization is also commonly prescribed
for patients with spinal cord injuries, sometimes with metal braces, rigid collars, or special beds.

In other cases, surgery is required
to remove bone fragment or disc material that may be compressing the spine, or to stabilize the spine to avoid further injury, pain, or complications.

Through a personal injury claim for your spinal cord injuries, a San Diego spinal cord injury lawyer may be able to help you obtain compensation for current and future medical expenses as well as other incidental expenses.
