Spinal Cord Injury
According to data collected by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are over 250,000 people in the United States who are suffering from spinal cord injuries. Each year, approximately 11,000 people sustain a new spinal cord injury, which amounts to thirty new injuries every day.
The majority of spinal cord injuries occur as a result of trauma, with auto accidents as the leading cause of such traumatic injuries. In some people, the cause may be medical malpractice – for example, surgical errors causing direct damage to the spinal cord or undiagnosed internal bleeding or an abscess that compresses the spinal cord or causes loss of blood flow to the cord.
Regardless of the cause, the impact from spinal cord injuries is both sudden and severe. There is the personal loss from the disruption of bodily function, from the pain associated with the injury and from the loss of independence. There is the financial loss from an inability to perform one’s job or perform duties at home. There is the cost of medical care, rehabilitation, and other costs associated with long-term care. A spinal cord injury leads to many questions and issues to face.
