One of the most devastating injuries a person can sustain in an accident is a spinal cord injury. More than 11,000 people suffer these life-changing injuries each year, most commonly from auto accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents, but also from falls, diving and sports accidents, and acts of violence. The initial recovery from a spinal cord injury may take months or even years. In many cases, victims suffer permanent paralysis as a result of their injury.

Lifelong medical treatment and rehabilitation for a spinal cord injury can cost millions of dollars. Spinal cord injuries are life changing, and victims may require around-the-clock medical care for the rest of their lives. The expense of paying for hospitalizations, long-term care, living modifications due to being in a wheelchair, prescriptions, surgeries and lost earnings, and even lost insurance benefits due to not being able to return to work, can be financially devastating.
According to University of Alabama National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, only 52% of spinal cord injury victims are covered by private health insurance at the time of an injury. Because of the expenses associated for caring for an injury victim, getting full and fair compensation from whoever is responsible for an accident is essential. Monetary damages recovered for a spinal cord injury can include compensation for all medical care, hospitalization costs, rehabilitation, lost earnings, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other accident
When an accident that leads to a spinal cord injury can be attributed to another person’s negligent, careless, or reckless actions, the victim may be entitled to compensation for their injury. In cases involving spinal cord injuries, which may cause permanent disability, paralysis, and other injuries, the compensation the victim may be entitled to may be substantial.
Although money can never take away the physical and emotional pain of a catastrophic injury such as a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury, money can cover the astronomical financial costs and allow victims to receive the best medical care so that they may live the most comfortable life possible.
