While recovery from a spinal cord injury is possible, it can be long and costly, and common tasks may remain difficult or impossible. Those who will never recover will be permanently confined to a wheelchair or bed and under medical care for life.

We understand that your life may have permanently changed, and we will treat you with compassion and respect as we work to secure compensation for current and future treatment costs as well as lost wages and quality of life.
There Are Many Causes Of Spinal Cord Injuries
Whether caused by vehicular, slip-and-fall, workplace, defective product or other personal injury accidents, spinal cord injuries can be permanently disabling or fatal. Statistics on spinal cord injuries show just how devastating a problem they are:
- Since 2010, traffic accidents account for well over one-third of spinal cord injuries, affecting drivers and passengers in all kinds of vehicles.
- Falls are the second leading cause of these injuries, nearly 29 percent of the total.
Depending on the seriousness of the damage, a person with a spinal cord injury can expect to incur anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million in medical costs during the first year after being injured and often anywhere from $100,000 to over $180,000 a year after that.
