More than 40 percent of all spinal cord injuries are the result of an auto accident. People between the ages of 16 and 30 are more likely to be involved in an auto accident and are at a greater risk of suffering a spinal cord injury, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Suffering a paralyzing spinal cord injury at a young age can be traumatizing, especially when it was caused by a negligent accident that could have been prevented. Individuals paralyzed from an accident may not have the means to support themselves and their families or pay for comprehensive medical treatment. When the accident is a result of someone else’s negligence, financial compensation may be available.
