Living with Paralysis | Law Offices of Brian J. Mongelluzzo

Aug 19, 2014

Tragic events, in which the people involved end up paralyzed, can be the most difficult and life-altering things anybody can face. Did you know that nearly one in 50 Americans suffer from paralysis to some degree?

Spinal Cord Injuries are the second leading cause of paralysis while Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) also contributes to the overall number. According to statistics, 24% of spinal cord injuries are caused by a motor vehicle accident, while 28% are caused by a workplace injury. This information comes from the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation, which estimates that nearly 5.6 million Americans are paralyzed in total. The cost of living varies due to the severity of the injury but it is estimated that expenses range from $228,566.00 to $775,567.00 in the first year alone. These costs are astronomical, but necessary.
