Spinal cord injuries: Access to quality care a critical need

News regarding a ribbon-cutting ceremony and the related opening of a health center termed as “a state-of-the-art long-term care facility” earlier this month in Long Beach brings to mind several key points concerning spinal cord injuries and treatment.

Here’s one: It is edifying indeed to note that impassioned advocacy coupled with real commitment can result in such a facility becoming a reality. The center — a creation that reportedly owes centrally to the joint efforts of proponents in both the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the nonprofit group Paralyzed Veterans of America — was created to house and treat veterans suffering with spinal cord injuries who cannot live with family members or independently.

Here’s another: The facility’s layout and offerings — marked notably by a high level of technological innovation — underscore the fact that spinal cord treatment, therapies and other care requirements can be costly and that persons suffering from SCI-related ailments often require comprehensive and life-long assistance.

And here’s yet one more point that likely emerges with some clarity for any person who gains familiarity with the 24-hour care facility in Long Beach: There aren’t many facilities like it (a media story on the center states that it is “the only one of its kind west of the Mississippi”), and those who gain access to its offerings comprise a decidedly small population.

As we note on the Spinal Cord Injury page of our website at the Los Angeles personal injury law firm of Scott J. Corwin, A Professional Law Corporation, persons dealing with spinal cord injuries — often as the result of third-party negligence — frequently “experience a dramatic change in [their] quality of life.”

Life’s adjustments that are often required because of SCI-imposed limitations make it an imperative that a person suffering from a spinal cord injury secure the best care possible.

We know that intimately at our law firm, and understand further that legal damage remedies are vitally important to help ensure quality care for an injured person that is comprehensive and permanent.

We welcome questions and comments about our firm and its aggressive representation on behalf of clients in this critically important practice area.
