Spinal cord injuries can be suffered in a car accident, sports accident or from many other causes. Spinal cord injuries can render an individual a paraplegic, quadriplegic or disabled for life. In addition to years of medical care and ongoing health issues, spinal cord injuries may lead to exorbitant medical bills.
