South Carolina Paraplegia Injury Lawyer
Paraplegia Injury Lawyers
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury that resulted in paraplegia - permanent paralysis of the legs - due to the negligence of others, or if an insurance company does not want to adequately compensate your losses, our paraplegia injury attorneys can ensure those parties uphold their obligations to restore your finances and long-term health.
Paraplegia injuries are among the most traumatic, severe and extreme types of personal injury that an accident victim can incur. They result in permanent disability which drastically diminishes the quality of life for the victim, as he or she is restricted to a wheelchair for life. An alarming amount of immediate and long-term medical attention is required following a paraplegia injury. For all these reason you need the experience of the skilled personal injury lawyers at Joe and Martin Law Firm making sure you get the urgent and proper medical treatment you need and the full and fair financial compensation you deserve.
The High Cost of Paraplegia Injuries
For anyone who suffers a spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia, the cost is immeasurable. Despite the continued use of their arms as well as the victim's ability to regain independence after lengthy rehabilitation, paraplegics will usually require ongoing medical treatments and occasional assistance with tasks most people take for granted. You can't put a price on these kinds of permanent losses and disabilities.
The average first year costs to treat paraplegia is more than $150,000. That's due in part to the average patient spending almost 60 days in the hospital and physical therapy/rehab after their initial accident. This, of course, results in lost wages from work absence which contributes to the unrelenting financial burden. Even with health insurance, these exorbitant medical expenses can put entire families in financial jeopardy.
