Do you need to make Livingston personal injury claims after suffering a spine injury?
When people suffer any sort of spinal injury, it can be very serious indeed. Unfortunately, spine problems can be relatively common and they can cause patients a lot of pain and discomfort. Many people suffer from injuries, such as slipped discs, which can affect their mobility considerably.
Although it is possible to have spine injuries operated on, this isn’t always the first course of treatment. As the spine is so delicate, and carries nerves to the rest of the body, it can be a difficult area to operate on and surgery often carries considerable risks. In many cases, doctors prefer to try alternative treatments before going ahead with surgery.
In some cases, patients must simply rest and hope that the injury will heal with minimum intervention. Whilst painkillers may help them to be more comfortable, blocking the pain completely could risk them worsening the injury so it can be a painful and slow recovery process.
As any sort of movement tends to involve our spine, a spinal injury can easily render people bedridden. Whilst most patients do recover their mobility, for some people, a spinal injury can cause a permanent loss of mobility.
Any sort of injury which has such a permanent effect is obviously very serious. If you’ve suffered this type of injury, you may want to make Livingston personal injury claims so that you can obtain compensation for the harm that you’ve suffered. As long as you weren’t responsible for the injury and it was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that your Livingston personal injury claims will be successful.
