Medical Care for Spinal Stenosis
A condition that is characterized by the narrowing of a person’s spinal canal, spinal stenosis means there is the possibility of pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, and this pressure can result in pain, numbness, weakness, and other debilitating symptoms.
Often spinal stenosis develops over time due to aging, wear, and degenerative conditions, but it can also happen when a person is involved in a traumatic event, such as a car collision, workplace incident, or sport accident. Any situation that causes sudden and severe trauma to the spine could potentially lead to spinal stenosis as the impact and force of accidents can result in fractures, herniated discs, or dislocations, and all of these spinal injuries can contribute to the narrowing of the spinal canal.
Seeking medical attention after an accident is always advised, and this is particularly true if you are experiencing symptoms like back pain, tingling, or numbness in your extremities. A prompt diagnosis, whether the issue is spinal stenosis or another health concern, and appropriate treatment can make a significant difference in managing your recovery.
To build a strong case that your spinal harm was a direct result of negligence, it’s crucial to establish liability. Often this involves gathering evidence such as accident reports, witness testimonies, medical records, and visual documentation of the accident scene. Documentation is important because spinal stenosis can manifest for other reasons, and to prove a person or party is responsible there has to be evidence that a spinal stenosis diagnosis is a direct result of the accident cited within a claim.
Recovery for Emotional Support Expenses
Dealing with a spinal stenosis diagnosis can be emotionally taxing, and people may need to speak with a therapist or counselor to cope with distress. Your lawyer can provide guidance and support throughout the legal process, including connecting you with the financial recovery you need to pay for medical expenses and mental health fees. Then, you can have the time and space you need to focus on your recovery and well-being.
If you or a loved one has received a spinal stenosis diagnosis after an accident in New Jersey or Pennsylvania, don’t hesitate to reach out to a qualified Bucks County personal injury attorney.
