Spinal cord injuries are among the most feared and life changing injuries. Imagine not being able to walk, type, dress yourself, feed yourself, or feel when you need to empty your bladder. Who would be there to help you? How would you manage?
About Spinal Cord Injuries and Paralysis
According to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation one in every fifty people have some degree of paralysis. That translates to over six million people in the United States.
According to the Reeve Foundation:
- 24% of all spinal cord injuries are the result of a motor vehicle accident.
- 28% of all spinal cord injuries are caused by work related accidents.
- 16% are caused by sports injuries, while 8% are caused by slip and falls.
Injury to the spinal cord may occur in other ways as well, including in diving accidents, assaults, or because of medical malpractice.
Spinal cord injuries can cause extreme financial hardship for the injured person and his or her family. The lifetime costs of care for a person with paralysis are staggering and easily exceed ten million for a person injured in their mid twenties. These costs include medical care, medical products (e.g. catheters), physical therapy, adaptive devices, various other equipment, and home renovations.
If you or a loved one has been paralyzed because of the negligence of someone else contact the experienced trial attorneys at Bode & Collins, P.L.C. today. See if we are the right legal team to help you get the financial compensation you need and deserve.
