Identifying the Cost of Living with Spinal Cord Injuries
The financial implications of a spinal cord injury are staggering to consider. The health care costs and living expenses alone, not including lost earnings or earning capacity, can quickly add up to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Recovering a fair settlement or award after a spinal cord injury can directly influence the quality of care, comfort, and one’s overall well-being.
According to a study published by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center in 2015, a lifetime of healthcare costs and living expenses for spinal cord injuries may equal:
- Over $4.5 million for a 25-year-old patient with quadriplegia.
- Over $2.5 million for a 50-year-old patient with quadriplegia.
- Over $2.3 million for a 25-year-old patient with paraplegia.
- Over $1.5 million for a 50-year-old patient with paraplegia.
It is important to note that those figures do not include loss of income or loss of potential earnings. They also do not include pain and suffering a spinal cord injury victim may experience.
We have obtained many of the top personal injury verdicts in Montana including 18 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million.
