Spinal Cord Injuries From Truck Accidents

Charleston Spinal Cord Injuries From Truck Accidents Lawyer

About 12,500 Americans suffer spinal cord injuries every year, with vehicular accidents accounting for about 38 percent of them, the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center reports. That comes out to an average of 4,750 spinal cord injuries caused by vehicular accidents, including large trucks.

Since trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, the force of impact in a crash is often worse than in a car accident or crash. Therefore, spinal cord injuries are a common injury resulting from truck accidents.

Spinal cord injuries typically result in costly medical treatments and conditions that last a lifetime. The cost of treating spinal cord injuries often exceeds more than $1 million. Common medical care for those suffering a spinal cord injury from a truck accident includes:

  • Spinal surgery;
  • Traumatic care, such as ventilator use;
  • Long-term care;
  • Medical equipment; and,
  • Ongoing medications.

Spinal cord injuries can result in pain and suffering, as well as large and seemingly endless medical bills. Recovering from a spinal cord injury can take a toll on not only your health but also your financial stability and well-being.
