Arachnoiditis from Spinal Trauma in Rollover Accidents
Rollover accidents can cause severe injuries for those involved, as they may be violently thrown around the passenger cabin or even out of the car entirely. Even with safety features, such as seat belts and airbags, people involved in rollover accidents often sustain serious injuries to their heads and spines. If a person sustains severe trauma to their spine, they may develop a condition known as arachnoiditis. This permanent disability can cause severe pain for the person affected, leaving them unable to work or enjoy certain hobbies.
Living with Arachnoiditis
Rollover accidents are often caused due to poor vehicle design. And, as many vehicles don’t have sufficient safety features to protect motorists in these types of accidents, victims are often left with very serious spinal cord injuries, such as arachnoiditis, which can cause:
- Severe pain
- Numbness in the extremities
- Tingling in the extremities
- Inability to sit for long periods of time due to pain
- Infrequent loss or difficulty in controlling limb movement
- If the lower spinal cord is injured, there may be a loss of bowel and bladder control
Arachnoiditis isn’t curable, but can be treated through a variety of pain management therapies. However, over a lifetime, these medical needs can eventually create a massive financial burden.
