What Are Spinal Cord Injuries?

When people think of spinal cord injuries, they usually think about car crashes. Indeed, vehicles crashes are responsible for the most (38%) incidents of SCIs. We also know that they are caused by falls (30.5%), violence (13.5%), sports and recreation incidents (9%), and medical or surgical mistakes (5%).

The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center says that there are approximately 282,000 people in the U.S. living with spinal cord injuries and that there are about 17,000 new SCIs each year.

There are different kinds of spinal cord injuries, with the worst ones causing paralysis. However, there are different levels of paralysis:

  • partial quadriplegia (partial paralysis of all limbs)
  • partial paraplegia (partial paralysis of lower limbs)
  • complete paraplegia (complete loss of function for lower limbs)
  • complete quadriplegia (complete loss of function for all limbs)

The True Cost Of SCIs

The cost of treatment for a spinal cord injury varies depending on the level of injury, but for the first year of medical care, the costs range from $346,896 to over $1 million. Each year after the first sees a range of $42,256 to $185,111 in medical costs.

However tremendous those medical costs are, they are not the whole picture. There are other hidden costs associated with these injuries. These can include:

  • necessary home and vehicle accommodations
  • travel to and from spinal cord specialists
  • lost income of the victim and/or a family caregiver
  • pain and suffering/loss of enjoyment of life damages

We also know that SCI victims are much more likely to be hospitalized with other illnesses throughout their lifetime and that they have a shorter lifespan than healthy individuals.
