SPINAL CORD INJURY
An injury to a person’s spinal cord is often life-altering. In the instant of a car accident, truck accident, or other catastrophic accident involving spinal cord injury, a victim may become partially or fully paralyzed, with the specter of years of medical bills for hospitalization, surgery, and rehabilitation, not to mention the serious impact the injury can have on their ability to make a living and the emotional and physical pain that can ensue. Although nothing can be done to change the past, spinal cord injury victims do have the ability to pursue damages for all of their injuries, both past and future, resulting from the accident. McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP is a premier litigation firm in the Inland Empire, and its personal injury team has consistently gone the distance to recover huge settlements and verdicts on behalf of clients and their families in all types of catastrophic injury cases.
McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP aggressively represents its clients by using all ethical means available to hold the responsible parties accountable for all losses and damages incurred. It is through this unwavering dedication that McCune Wright Arevalo, LLP brings its commitment into real world practice by “Restoring Hope Through Justice.”
THE CONSEQUENCES OF SPINAL CORD INJURIES
The most common causes of spinal cord injuries are from motor vehicle accidents (cars, truck, motorcycles, ATVs, etc.), violent acts including assaults and gunshots, falls, and sports and recreation activities. Spinal cord injuries have a hugely detrimental impact on a person’s ability to work, with only 12% of victims being able to work one year after an accident.
Spinal cord injury researchers estimate that those victims suffering the worst level of injury can expect to face an average of $1,065,980 (in 2015 dollars) in medical expenses in the year following the injury, and another $185,000 in medical costs in every subsequent year. For a person in their 20s, this can result in over $4,000,000 in costs over their lifetime. This amount does not include compensation for inability to work or the pain and suffering they will endure.
