Help! A car hit me while I was riding my bike and now I’m in serious pain. My doctor said that I’m lucky to be able to walk, but I seriously injured my spinal cord. Texoma friends told me that I should reach out to a lawyer for help. Can you give me any tips on how to cope, and what I should do?

A spinal cord injury in Texoma can be very serious. Your spinal cord acts as the control center, relaying signals from your brain to the rest of your body. Moreover, your spinal cord is a very delicate structure so when it’s damaged, it can be very painful.

Every spinal cord injury is unique, but there are a few things that everyone who experiences this injury must do to protect him or herself while healing.

  • Follow all of your doctor’s orders. Your health is most important. When it comes to coping with your injury, it is best to follow all of your doctor’s orders. This includes heading all advice on exercise, diet, rehabilitation, and more.
  • Don’t talk to the other person’s insurance company. A Texoma spinal cord injury is complex. The insurance adjuster handling your case may ask you tricky questions to try to downplay the extent of your injury. This can be costly and should be avoided at all costs. Leave the communication up to your Texoma spinal cord injury lawyer instead.
  • Recruit help from friends and family. This can be very difficult for many people. Asking for help may not come easy to you, but if you have a strong support network of people who want to help you out, it can be a tremendous benefit to take them up on their offer. Don’t be afraid to reach out.

While you follow these steps, you will be better able to cope with the pain, focus on your recovery, and still protect your Texoma spinal cord injury case. To find out specifically how a lawyer can help you with your unique situation, contact our office today to schedule a free consultation.
