Treatments for your loved one's paralysis after an accident

When a person is involved in a car accident, their body can be injured permanently. Tragically, this is a reality for many car accident victims across the United States each year. One of the most serious consequences of a car accident is paralysis, which results from an injury to the spinal cord.

If you have a loved one who is suffering paralysis after a car accident in the state of Illinois, it is important that you gather information about helping them to manage their injuries. In addition, you should make sure that they claim the compensation that they are entitled to.

What types of treatments are available for paralysis?

The treatment that a person suffering from paralysis will receive depends on the extent of the paralysis. Assistive devices can drastically improve a patient's quality of life, and recovery over time is possible.

Much of the treatment received is concerned with secondary conditions associated with the injury. For example, there may be a need to prescribe medication for bladder dysfunction, and surgery may be required.

Those who suffer from breathing problems may benefit from the use of a ventilator. In addition, deep vein thrombosis is a common secondary condition of spinal cord injuries. Therefore, blood thinners may be used to prevent the risk.

What type of compensation is my loved one entitled to?

As a car accident victim, your loved one should be entitled to coverage of medical expenses, as well as compensation for the life-altering injuries they are suffering from. If fault can be assigned to another party, they may be liable for damages.
