Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious types of injuries a person can be inflicted with, because they cannot be cured or repaired. The healing period after a spinal cord injury typically consists of the victim learning to live with their new limitations.

Typical consequences of a spinal cord injury can include:

  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Loss of sensation
  • Inability to control bodily functions
  • Loss of sexual function

Victims of spinal cord injuries and their families often face:

  • Emergency hospitalization
  • Rehabilitation and physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Home care
  • Ongoing medical care
  • Medical expenses that aren’t covered by the victim’s health insurance
  • Travel expenses for medical care and for family members to visit while the victim is hospitalized and/or receiving medical care
  • Counseling and emotional support for the victim and his or her family
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent disability and inability to work
  • Funeral expenses in the event that the victim dies as a result of his or her injuries
