According to information posted on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, it is estimated that anywhere between 12,000 and 20,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries on an annual basis; 46% of those injuries are caused by motor vehicle accidents. Falls were deemed to be the second main cause of spinal cord injuries, accounting for approximately 22% of all spinal cord injuries. Brain and spinal cord injuries can also increase your risk for other brain related maladies such as Parkinson’s disease.
Countless lives are significantly affected and altered as a result of these permanent and often debilitating injuries. There are different levels of traumatic brain injuries. While some are considered mild, causing a brief change in mental status or consciousness, others are more severe, often causing an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia after the injury.
These injuries can take away from quality of life and your ability to work. The legal team at Martinez Law understands the expensive medical bills, loss of work, pain, and emotional turmoil that come with brain and spinal cord injuries. Your health is important to us and we will fight hard, so you can concentrate on the road to recovery.
