Spinal Cord Injuries: Causes and Consequences
According to statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of all spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents such as car crashes,
motorcycle accidents and
Slip and fall accidents are the second most common cause, accounting for more than one in five cases, followed by acts of violence such as
assault and battery, and injuries sustained in sports accidents. An injury of this nature can result in paralyzing conditions such as paraplegia or tetraplegia, depending on the region of the spine that is damaged, and the individual is often left with a permanent partial or total disability.
The CDC further reports that an SCI can cost between $15,000 and $30,000 per year, while the average cost over the course of a lifetime is estimated at up to $3 million.
