The Cost of Spinal Cord Injuries
The costs of a spinal cord injury are significant, especially for families struggling to make ends meet. For instance, on average the first year of living with high tetraplegia (i.e. quadriplegia among the vertebrae closest to the head) costs $710,275. Even the least severe condition, involving incomplete motor function at some level, costs on average $209,324 in the first year, and $14,670 thereafter.
Working with medical experts, economists, and health care planners, Gump & Faiella, LLC accurately quantifies the costs our clients face. We consider more than medical costs, including lost earnings and pain and suffering as well.
