Melrose Spinal Cord Injury

At Sheff Law, we have personally seen how spinal cord injuries are devastating to the victim and their loved ones, and while some injuries tend to be mild, many are severe and life changing. Some spinal cord injuries can lead to permanent nerve damage, which could lead to permanent disability and loss of sensation below the vertebral level. General spinal cord injury symptoms include:

  • Abrupt loss of consciousness
  • Brutal back pain or pressure buildup in back, head, or neck
  • Extreme weakness, clumsiness, or immobility in any body part
  • Numbness in hands, finger, feet, or toes
  • Loss of bladder and/ or bowel control
  • Inability to establish equilibrium
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Oddly positioned torso or neck

Melrose is a growing community, for example, Melrose-Wakefield Hospital pioneered the world’s first cochlear implant and laser surgery. Melrose-Wakefield Hospital also was among the first hospitals in the country to offer same day surgery. Melrose also offers Melrose Veterans Memorial Middle School (MVMMS). MVMMS has won several awards such as, Massachusetts Technology Collaborative Green School Award and the 2008 New England League of Middle Schools’ Spotlight School Award. While Melrose does not have a major road running through its borders, it does have several local highways near by, like Route 1 in Saugus, Interstate 93 in Stoneham, and Route 128/Interstate 95 in Wakefield.The growth of Melrose, while beneficial, can also come with potential dangers. Due to the increased traffic of near Melrose, due to nearby major roads, a pioneering hospital, and a first class school, can lead to an increased risk of a spinal cord injury.Spinal cord injuries can occur from car accidents, sports accidents, and even slip and fall situations.If you have suffered or are suffering from a possible spinal cord injury due to another’s negligence or recklessness, first seek medical attention and act according to any recommendations given by your medical professional.
