Minnesota Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

A spinal cord injury can completely change the life of the victim and those who are close to him or her. Paralysis due to a spinal cord injury is life-altering and results in substantial financial burden in order to cover the costs of ongoing medical care and equipment, specialized medicines and supplies, attendant care and adaptive technologies.

  • Average expenses in the first year following a serious spinal cord injury can total $195,000 (ranges from $150,000 for paraplegics to $425,000 for quadriplegics)
  • Average lifetime costs are estimated at $1.4 million (for quadriplegics who have a spinal cord injury between ages 25 to 30)
  • Only 50 percent of injured clients are covered by private health insurance at the time of their injury
