Spinal cord injuries are the result of traumatic events that can cause varying degrees of permanent and disabling conditions. They are almost always tragic and life-altering, leaving the victim and his or her loved ones responsible for a variety of needs, including hospitalization, rehabilitation, medical care and expenses for the remainder of the victim’s life; counseling or psychiatric care, lost wages; and much more.
Medical expenses and other necessary costs incurred when a spinal cord injury is suffered are generally high, and most individuals are unable to pay for them personally.
