  Becoming hurt in a workplace injury can be a traumatic experience. You may be worried that your employer is going to retaliate against you if you file a workers’ compensation claim. However, you have the right to collect benefits while you are unable to work and should not be plagued with the fear of financial insecurity.

 

 

 

 

  No one is ever really prepared for an automobile accident and the effect that it has on your life. Time missed from work and the damage to your vehicle are usually the least of your worries, but things you will have to deal with even in a minor accident. More often, you will face physical injuries, sky-high medical bills, and sometimes even the loss of loved ones.

 

 

 

 

Your spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that travels from your brain along your vertebrae and down to your extremities. Your spinal cord transmits electrical impulses carrying sensory inputs to your brain and takes commands from your brain to your body. While your vertebrae cover and protect your spinal cord, if you sustain trauma to your neck, head or back, this can damage and even rupture that delicate cord. This injury restricts your nerve impulses, which causes a loss of mobility below your area of injury.

  Spinal cord injuries affect 12,000 people in America each year. Though spinal cord injuries range in severity, they always cause a drastic change in the victim’s life.
