Lawyers / Attorneys: Evaluating Nationwide Spinal Cord Accidents, Injuries & Death

PDF E-mail



According to the National Spinal Cord Injuries Association, current estimates suggest that the annual incidence of injuries to the spinal cord in the United States is approximately 40 cases per million of the population, which equates to more than 12,000 new cases each and every year. 

In addition, there are estimated to be between 250,000 and 300,000 U.S. citizens who, today, are suffering from major spinal cord injuries. 

Spinal cord injuries can have a devastating effect on the individual and can include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • A broken back
  • Loss of motor-functions
  • Fractures of the spine
  • An inability to engage in sexual activity
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Loss of ability to control bowel movements

From the specific perspective of medical treatment required by those affected by spinal cord injuries, the financial effects can be as devastating as the physical effects.

For example, for those in a paraplegic state, first-year health-care costs and related expenses can expect to be in the region of $280,000 to $300,000, with subsequent, annual costs in the region of $30,000. 

Spinal cord injuries can occur directly as a result of a variety of situations, including engaging in sports and games; automobile accidents; shootings; aircraft accidents; work-related incidents; and accidental falls.

Significantly, almost 50 per cent of all such spinal cord injuries that occur each year are vehicular in nature. In many such tragedies the victims are wholly innocent parties: drunk-drivers, reckless and inexperienced drivers, faulty traffic-lights, and manufacturing defects in vehicles (including defective brakes and seat belts) have all contributed to spinal cord injuries.
