Types Of Serious Injuries

We will cover a few catastrophic injuries here today, but please know this is not a complete list. Always seek the advice of a skilled attorney before you make a decision moving forward.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Thanks to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, we have some good statistics when it comes to spinal cord injuries. The main causes are:

There are approximately 17,000 new spinal cord injuries a year and there are around 282,000 people living with spinal cord injuries. Treatment for these injuries for the first year of medical care can range of $346,896 to over $1 million dollars depending on the severity of the injury. Each following year is also tremendously expensive.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are more than 5.3 million people living with disabilities caused by TBIs in the United States and they can happen to anyone. A major blow to the head during a vehicle accident, sports incident, a fall, or other common cause can leave a person debilitated.

A person suffering from a TBI usually requires extensive care and often needs long-term rehabilitation. Sometimes, a person suffers from permanent cognitive, speech, and mobility problems in the aftermath of a TBI.

Other Serious Injuries

While those are two of the most devastating injuries, there are others that can completely alter a person’s life. These can include:

  • Internal organ damage or bleeding
  • Crush injuries or compartment syndrome
  • The loss of a limb

Hidden Costs Of Injuries

What most people do not talk about, and what insurance companies tend to ignore, are the hidden costs of these major injuries. We are talking about:

  • Lost income and benefits of the person injured
  • Lost income and benefits of a family member if they become a caregiver
  • Home and vehicle accommodations (wheelchair ramps, accessible vehicles, doorway widening)
  • Travel expenses to hospitals and rehabilitation centers
  • Long-term emotional and psychological needs
  • Loss of enjoyment of life damages
