We know that there are no injuries you plan on getting, but we also know that sometimes they happen. Some of the most devastating injuries that can happen to a person are spinal cord injuries.

A quick look at the statistics show us that anyone is at risk for a spinal cord injury. How do they happen?
There are around 250,000 people living in the United States with spinal cord injuries.
There are around 11,000 new spinal cord injuries each year. Most new spinal cord injury patients (78 percent) are male.
In just the first year of care, the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center estimates the following cost of care:
The first year after an injury is difficult, with many trips to specialists who are often out of town. Paying for these trips, as well as time away from work for family members to travel with you, significantly add to these costs.
Most spinal cord injury patients return to the hospital a few times a year with illnesses related to the injury. This adds to the annual cost of care.
There are other costs aside from medical expenses. With spinal cord injuries, often there will be a complete lifestyle change for the victim as well as their families.
You may need a specialized wheelchair. There will likely need to be some kind of accommodation built into the house, depending on the severity of the injury. The doorways may need to be widened so that a wheelchair can fit through them. You may need a new vehicle that is wheelchair accessible.
