Complications from a Spinal Cord Injury
Not only does a patient have to deal with the consequences of their spinal cord injury, but they may also have additional complications that can make the situation much more traumatic.
Some complications of a spinal cord injury stemming from a car accident include:
- chronic pain;
- loss of sensation;
- impaired breathing;
- loss of movement;
- sexual dysfunction; and
- loss of bladder and bowel control.
These complications will depend on the location and severity of the injury. While symptoms can sometimes be temporary, there may be permanent damage.
There can also be emotional complications with a spinal cord injury. This can result in the need for counseling and/or medication to treat depression and other psychological conditions.
If you suffered a spinal cord injury because of someone else’s negligent actions in a car accident, your next step should be to seek legal counsel.
