As we discussed in our previous blog post, spinal cord injuries can affect the person who suffered the injury, as well as the people who care for that person. The effects of this type of catastrophic injury are far-reaching. Every person in the victim's immediate family will have to deal with the effects of the injury, to some extent.
A person who faces a spinal cord injury is likely going to need help with some self care duties. In many cases, a loved one begins to act as caregiver for the injured person. That means that the spinal cord injury is now affecting the injured person, as well as the caregiver.
To take away the skull or to not take away the skull is a question that some doctors have when they are coming up with a care plan for a patient who suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.

In our previous blog post, we touched on the many causes of semitruck accidents. If you recall, these accidents can be the fault of the trucker, the trucking company, or various other entities.

If you are injured in a trucking accident, you should be aware of some of the factors that can lead to an accident so that you can determine if any of these reasons were present in your accident.
