Severe spinal cord injuries change everything about your life, not least your financial obligations. A high tetraplegiac (someone whose spinal cord has been damaged above the first thoracic vertebra, in the neck) can expect to face medical bills and daily living expenses in excess of $800,000 the first year after the injury, and $145,000 in years that follow.*
Those numbers are for primary medical treatment and life expenses only. They do not include lost pay, extended hospital stays, rehab visits, regular doctor’s appointments, wheelchairs, ramps, medical supplies, prescriptions, or psychological treatment for pain and suffering.
The bottom line is that being paraplegic or quadriplegic requires a solid economic footing, which is usually attainable only by compensation from the negligent party’s insurance policy. No matter how serious your injury, no matter how much you suffer because of this negligence, insurance companies are in no rush to write you a check.
