    Pontrhydyfen road traffic accidents


    Spinal injuries can be one of the many consequences of  Pontrhydyfen road traffic accidents. If the spine is damaged in a traumatic event such as a car accident, it is referred to as a ‘Spinal Cord Injury’ as it was not caused by a disease. The symptoms of a spinal injury will vary, depending on the severity of the injury and the area of the spine that is damaged. A patient may suffer from a lot of pain or even paralysis. Spinal injuries can also cause people to become incontinent and feel a loss of sensation or numbness in the injured area.

    Treatment for spinal injuries depends on the area that is damaged and how much damage has been done. Sadly, in some cases, known as ‘complete spinal injury’, patients do not regain use of their spine. When a spine injury is first diagnosed, the initial treatment is to restrain the spine to control any movement and prevent the patient from damaging it further.

    If the spine has been broken, you will need a plaster cast for many weeks to heal the bones. Sometimes, bones need to be replaced by metal rods if they are too badly damaged. In this case, the patient will then need several months (if not longer) of physiotherapy sessions. In the mildest cases of spinal injuries, a course of physiotherapy can be enough on its own to regain the use of the spine.

    If you have suffered a spinal injury, this could have had a real impact on you and your family’s lives. You will not be able to work, placing a real financial burden on the whole family. You will need extra care and someone to do the everyday chores around the house, adding to your expenses.

    Anyone who has been involved in Pontrhydyfen road traffic accidents. and has suffered a spinal injury, could be entitled to make a compensation claim. This allows a person to recoup some of the losses they have incurred due to the accident.
