The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) estimates that approximately 12,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries every year in the U.S. This does not take into account any accident victims who die at the scene.
The estimated lifetime cost of care for someone who suffers tetraplegia at age 25 is $4,633,137, while the estimated lifetime cost for someone with paraplegia is $2,265,584. This figure varies extremely depending on a variety of factors and does not take into account any indirect expenses such as lost wages or lost productivity.
If you or a loved one sustained serious neck or spinal injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, turn to T.J. Smith, Attorney at Law. Our Louisville accident lawyer has more than two decades of experience and has recovered more than $200 million for past clients. We never charge a fee unless we win or settle your case. Plus, we can come to your home or the hospital at no charge to you.
"I understand the medicine of the case. When a client comes into my office and says he has pain running down his leg, I can show him a model of the human spine and point out that he likely has an S-4 lumbar issue that is simply manifesting itself in the leg. No one else usually takes the time to sit down and talk to people about what’s going on." — Attorney T.J. Smith
