Most people never think about how they would pay for the costs associated with a serious personal trauma such as a spinal cord injury. After all, if you have health insurance and vehicle insurance, you should be covered–right? Unfortunately, all too often, insurance policies fall short of covering all of the costs associated with serious injuries, and the more serious and life-changing the trauma, the less likely the insurance policy is to cover the expenses completely.
Spinal cord injuries or SCIs are one of the most devastating types of personal injuries imaginable. Often, a spinal cord injury will cause permanent paralysis or changes in mobility that leave the victim unable to work or even perform self-care tasks. Estimating the future costs of spinal cord injury cases is not an easy task, and is usually best left to a personal injury attorney with experience in SCI cases.
