If you’ve been following our blog for the past few weeks, you may have noticed that we’re taking a closer look at spinal stenosis. Spinal stenosis is a serious and painful medical condition that causes significant back pain. Not only does it make it hard to do everyday tasks like lift groceries, drive a car, and sit or stand for prolonged periods of time, it may also make your work and recreational activities difficult, if not impossible, to enjoy. We don’t think anyone should have to suffer from this type of injury, especially when it was caused due to the fault of another person, such as being involved in a car accident.
EverydayHealth.com recently ran a human interest story on a young father and patient educator who developed spinal stenosis. Although his condition did not result from trauma after an accident, like a car crash or slip-and-fall, his story is a real-life example of the debilitating effect that spinal stenosis can have on every day life. For him, his pain was so severe that he couldn’t even turn a key or hold a pen! Read his story here to learn more about his journey and how he overcame his condition.
If you think you’re developing spinal stenosis and were recently injured, such as through a car, motorcycle, or bike accident or through a slip-and-fall, you should consider consulting with an attorney. Not only may your injury worsen over time, you may also be facing situations like time off of work, limited mobility, and potentially permanent pain. If you don’t consult with an attorney and see what your options are, you may be missing out on some choices that may considerably help you and your family in the future.
