Spinal cord injuries can change lives instantaneously. Whether from a car accident, a swimming pool accident, a sports accident, slip and fall, or other accident, spinal cord injuries can severely impact an individual’s life, including paralysis or death.
Spinal Cord Injury Accidents in Florida: Statistics and Facts
Individuals who suffer with complete spinal cord injuries have either total or near-total loss of motor function and sensation below the area of the injury. Spinal cord injury treatment can be a long and difficult process that often includes surgery, rehabilitation, and a course of medications.
According to a report published by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCSC) in 2020, it is estimated that the annual incidence of spinal cord injury (SCI) is approximately 54 cases per one million people in the United States, or about 17,810 new SCI cases each year.
Depending on the severity of the injury, the estimated lifetime care cost for a 25-year-old with a spinal cord injury ranges anywhere from $681,000 to over $3 million. These estimates do not consider the lost wages and productivity of the injured person, nor do they account for their pain and suffering.
