Spinal Cord Injury Claims in Dallas

Leading Causes of Spinal Cord Injury

A spinal cord injury can occur in virtually any type of accident, and when it does it will usually change the accident victim's life forever. Certain types of accidents, however, account for the vast majority of all spinal cord injuries. According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 4 different categories of accident account for 96 percent of spinal cord injuries throughout the United States. Motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents are the cause of 46 percent of SCI cases. Another 22 percent occur in falls, 16 in acts of violence, and 12 in sports accidents.

Spinal cord injuries can range from the relatively minor, such as whiplash, to the extreme and potentially fatal, including paraplegia and quadriplegia. Depending on the severity of the injury, the accident victim may suffer from mild numbness or full paralysis and loss of organ function, and he or she may require a ventilator and other types of life-support equipment. A spinal cord injury can leave the victim confined to a wheelchair or even to a bed, and may make it difficult or impossible to continue working and earning an income. Even a relatively mild spinal cord injury may cause chronic pain and restriction in the range of motion. The costs of such an injury can be astronomical. According to estimates provided by the CDC, an average SCI victim will pay between $15,000 and $30,000 per year in medical expenses alone, with lifetime costs running as high as $3 million.
