The Lifelong Cost of a Spinal Cord Injury
Recovering fair and complete compensation is of the utmost importance in a case involving spinal cord injuries. It is not just the cost of initial treatment and emergency care, it is the ongoing cost of treatment and therapy that must also be considered. A person suffering from paraplegia or quadriplegia resulting from a spine injury may require lifelong care, and this should be covered by your personal injury settlement or award.
Depending on one’s age at the time of injury:
- The cost of lifetime care for a person with quadriplegia may range from $2.1 to $4.7 million.
- The cost of lifetime care for a person with paraplegia may range from $1.5 to $2.3 million.
What’s more, these figures do not include lost earnings or living expenses. These are the medical costs and costs of care, medication, assistive devices, and other things the person will need to function.
