Spinal Cord Injuries
The National Spinal Cord Injuries Association (NSCIA) reports that:
- 250,000 – 400,000 individuals in the United States have spinal cord injuries
- Approximately 11,000 people sustain new spinal cord injuries each year
- 60 percent of individuals with spinal cord injuries are 30 years old or younger
- The majority of people who sustain spinal cord injuries are men
According to NSCIA statistics, most spinal cord injuries are a result of car accidents, sports accidents, falls and industrial mishaps.
Victims of spinal cord injuries suffer dramatic life-changing affects not only physically, but also emotionally and socially. While certain degrees of recovery are possible in some cases, a serious spinal cord injury often results in paralysis. Medical costs can be astronomical for therapy, which may be required for a lifetime, as well as medical treatment and rehabilitation. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury caused by the negligence of another, retaining a lawyer is essential to recover compensation to cover the harm you suffered.
At the law firm of Rosenberg & Gluck, LLP, our personal injury lawyers have decades of experience assisting accident victims with spinal cord injuries. When you seek our help, we carefully evaluate the circumstances surrounding the cause of your injury. A critical part of your case preparation includes complex calculations to determine costs you will face for current and future medical and assistive care and rehabilitation. When you have sustained a spinal cord injury, expenses you face typically include structural changes in your home and provisions for transportation to accommodate a wheelchair and other equipment. As your lawyer, we ensure that all damages and expenses are included in the final cost projections for long-term care.
Our attorneys not only have the knowledge and experience to recover damages, but we also have an extensive network of doctors to assist our injured clients. We are dedicated to helping our clients get the treatment they need and encourage them to seek methods to stabilize their spinal cord injuries, explore rehabilitation and look for state-of-the-art cures.
