How Much of a Settlement Can I Expect After my Spine Was Injured in a Car Accident?

A car accident is a catastrophe that can happen any day, and an accident can leave you with many unanswered questions. Which hospital will you trust to heal your injuries? How will you pay your medical bills? Will your car insurance cover the damage to your car? Should you file a lawsuit?

Most Spinal Injuries are caused by preventable incidents, with car collisions being the most common. Spinal injuries occur when a vertebra is dislocated or fractured by a sudden impact. Injuries to the spine are very traumatic and can result in full or partial paralysis. If you suffer the most severe spinal cord injury, your medical bills can total $3 million dollars over your lifetime.
