Spinal cord injuries in a motorcycle crash can cost thousands

On Behalf of | Oct 12, 2020 | Injuries |

One of the most damaging injuries you could suffer in a motorcycle accident in Los Angeles is a spinal cord injury. Spinal cord injuries can be catastrophic not only to your health, but also to your pocketbook. The following is a brief overview of just what you could expect to pay in medical and care expenses in the first year alone if you injured your spinal cord in a motorcycle accident.

The first-year costs of a spinal cord injury

If you suffered a high tetraplegia, you can incur approximately $1 million medical and care expenses. If you suffered a low tetraplegia, you can incur approximately $769,000 in medical and care expenses. If you suffered a paraplegia injury, you could expect to pay around $518,000 in medical and care expenses. Finally, if you were injured in a way that leads to incomplete motor function at any level, you may owe as much as $347,000 in medical and care expenses.

Keep in mind that these numbers are only for the first year of your injury. You can expect to incur thousands of dollars more as the years go by.

Why are motorcyclists vulnerable to spinal cord injuries?

Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to spinal cord injuries. A standard automobile has sheer physics on its side, and when it strikes a motorcycle, it can cause the rider to be thrown violently from their bike.

Moreover, motorcycles are not equipped with safety features such as crumple zones, seat belts and air bags. Even a motorcyclist who is wearing a helmet can suffer a spinal cord injury if struck by an automobile.

Look into your options if you are involved in a motorcycle accident

Motorcyclists who have been hit by a vehicle and suffered a spinal cord injury will want to seek the legal assistance necessary to understand their rights and options. For example, it may be possible to pursue a legal claim against the driver responsible for the crash, depending on the circumstances.
