Are You Getting Adequate Treatment For Your Back Injury?
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, more than 240,000 individuals in the U.S. live with spinal cord injuries (SCIs), and there are roughly 17,000 new cases of SCIs each year. Not so surprisingly, motor vehicle crashes are the primary cause of these injuries, followed by slip-and-fall accidents. These are scenarios in which victims should be able to receive financial compensation to pay for their medical care. Unfortunately, such compensation can be tough to obtain.
Our attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help. With more than 60 combined years of experience, they have collected substantial financial settlements for the individuals they’ve represented in personal injury matters. They understand how to prove the existence of an injury and hold the parties responsible for our clients’ suffering accountable. Based in New Braunfels, our lawyers serve individuals and families throughout Central Texas and are always prepared to help.
The Costs Of Care
Recovering from a spinal cord injury is a lengthy and costly process. The average expenses for treatment during the first year can surpass $350,000. The lifetime costs are often well over $1 million. For this reason, many SCI victims avoid the medical care they need, fearing that they cannot afford it.
Yet, if left untreated, an SCI can lead to severe damage. In many situations, an injury to the spine can ultimately cause partial or total paralysis and neurological and respiratory issues. It is crucial to get appropriate treatment. Our attorneys at Kyle Law Firm can help you pursue the financial damages you need to recover from spinal injuries after a car accident or after slipping and falling. You may also be able to pursue compensation for a spinal injury caused by someone’s negligence or recklessness.
