How much do spinal cord injuries cost each year?

According to a 2009 study, about one out of every 50 people in the U.S. lives with some form of paralysis. Paralysis, which is often caused by spinal cord injuries, is a very serious condition that can range from a single body part to a person's entire physical form. Over 5.5 million people must cope with paralysis in some form, not only physically but also financially.

Brain injury compensation can address various losses

A Wilmington resident's life can change in the blink of an eye if they are involved in a damaging accident. Car and truck accidents are sometimes unavoidable and often involve being in the wrong place at the wrong time, through no fault of one's own. At times, these accidents are the fault of someone else, however. A negligent driver's action or inaction can either claim the life of a person or it can alter that person's life indefinitely through brain injuries, spinal cord injuries or other forms of very serious injury.

Many people in Wilmington work in the tech industry in some form or another.

The police can only do so much after a car accident

If a person is in the midst of a serious emergency, such as a car accident, that person is likely to reach out to authorities for help.

Afterwards, though, a car accident victim may need even more help to obtain compensation for damages, sort-out the legal confusion, protect their rights and more.

Tissue damage: the roots of a traumatic brain injury

What many people don't realize is that the majority of instances of traumatic brain injury are caused by falls and car accidents. These types of accidents are often caused by the negligence or recklessness of another person.
