Bruising and swelling surrounding the spinal cord, known as spinal shock,’ will most likely occur in the weeks following a traumatic spinal cord injury. The spinal cord may be further damaged as a result of the swelling. The entire extent of the spinal cord injury can only be determined once the swelling has subsided. This makes it essential to consult personal injury solicitors near me. We at Ross Aldridge Solicitors have an expert team who will help you cope with this challenging situation.
