Why Are Most Spinal Injuries Permanent?

Published on Jul 24, 2018 at 5:26 pm in Personal Injury.

Catastrophic injuries have long-term consequences that cause a lot of pain and often require the person to completely change their lifestyle. Paralysis is a catastrophic injury that’s caused by severe damage done to the spinal cord. Car accidents, medical malpractice, and slip and fall accidents are a few examples of situations where a person can suffer a spinal injury that causes paralysis.

It’s common in personal injury cases for a negligent person to be the reason why the injury happened. You can seek help from an Atlanta personal injury lawyer from Bey & Associates. We’ll stand up for your rights and get you the compensation you need.

When you’ve been injured or the victim of an accident, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to get compensation for those losses. You might go to a few different lawyers to get the best one for you, but you might not know that personal injury lawyers can refuse to take your case.

If this happens, it’s important to remember that they have sound reasons to not take your case. They have to act in their own best interest, and it’s better to have a lawyer who wants to take your case than a lawyer who isn’t invested in you.

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries in Georgia?

What Causes Spinal Cord Injuries in Georgia?

Spinal cord injuries result from damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself.  The most common spinal cord injury in Georgia and throughout the U.S. is a broken neck or back, causing damage to the bones of the spine that surround the spinal cord.  This often results in damage to the nerves of the spinal cord inside the spinal column.

Traumatic spinal cord injures occur when individuals experience a sudden, traumatic blow to their spine that fractures, crushes, or compresses one or more of their vertebrae.  Additional damage can occur days and weeks later because of bleeding, swelling, inflammation, and fluid accumulation in and around the spinal cord.

The Hidden Dangers of Concussions

Published on Mar 10, 2017 at 9:35 pm in Personal Injury.

We’re often told that injuries “come with the territory” of participating in team sports. Players commonly walk away from games with scrapes, cuts, bruises, broken bones, sprains, and even short-lived head injuries like concussions. Concussions, technically speaking, are usually caused by minor head trauma that can seem rather undramatic at the time. Most concussion victims recover within minutes or even right away.

As a result, most coaches, nurses, doctors, and other sport medicine professionals in Atlanta, Georgia and elsewhere have treated concussions like they had no lasting effects. New research suggests differently, however. It’s reported that as many as 3.8 million concussions happen every year between all levels of sport. In some of these cases, doctors are finding out that the accumulation of concussions—even when they’re undramatic—can lead to traumatic brain injury and even brain disease.
