If you have suffered a spinal cord injury due to a car accident in San Jose, you know the toll it takes on both you and your loved ones. A spinal cord injury may be complete – where all feeling and control is lost below the area where the spinal cord has been injured, or incomplete – some feeling and control is still capable below the area of injury. Regardless, it is debilitating, requiring ongoing medical care and treatment to manage the change in your lifestyle.
In addition to the limitations imposed by a spinal cord injury, continued care, possible surgery(ies), treatment, and rehabilitation is required to arrest the impairments caused by the injury and to allow you to lead as active a life as possible. In order to avoid complications such as muscle decomposition (from non-use of muscles), pressure ulcers (from being immobile for periods of time), respiratory infections, blood clots, bowel and bladder issues, as well as other issues which may come up, you will need to have financial resources to get the medical treatment you need to manage your long-term care.
