“How can we move forward from this?”

You may find yourself asking that question if you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury. These are not the type of injuries you plan on happening, and they can be completely life altering. It may seem like everything comes to a standstill.

If someone else has caused you or someone you love harm, you may need a spinal cord injury attorney in Sunny Isles Beach. The Dante Law Firm understands that these types of injuries can seem overwhelming and we want to help you get the compensation you need to help move forward.

How They Happen

Everyone is prone to a spinal cord injury, though it is not something we think about often.

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are a wide range of SCI causes.

  • 38 percent from vehicle accidents
  • 30.5 percent from falls
  • 13.5 percent from violence, usually gunshots
  • 9 percent from sports and recreation accidents
  • 5 percent from medical or surgical errors

Out of the approximately 17,000 new spinal cord injuries a year, 80 percent are male victims.

Outcomes

There are different levels of severity, and this is the breakdown:

  • 45 percent partial quadriplegia
  • 21.3 percent partial paraplegia
  • 20 percent complete paraplegia
  • 13.3 percent complete quadriplegia

The costs for the FIRST YEAR of medical expenses for these injuries ranges from $346,896 to over $1 million dollars. For each following year, the costs range from $42,256 to $185,111.

Those are just the medical costs. What is not included are the hidden costs that many people do not thing about.

  • Lost income of the person injured
  • Home and vehicle accommodations (wheelchair ramps, accessible vehicles, doorway widening)
  • Travel expenses for treatment to rehab
  • Caregiver costs (lost family income if they have to miss work)

These injuries significantly reduce life expectancy and lead to other medical conditions developing in the person who is injured.

Emotional Costs

Spinal cord injury victims see their lives completely changed. Many are never able to return to work or do the activities they love to do. They can develop severe depression. Family members who care for them also suffer from emotional distress and may need to seek psychological treatment.

These injuries do not just affect the person who suffers from them. They affect entire families.
