Sometimes it is easy to take our good health for granted. However, accidents happen every day in New Jersey that could lead to serious injuries such as spinal cord injuries. Whether it is sustained in a car crash, falling on a slippery floor or due to a sporting accident, a spinal cord injury can affect a person's health and well-being for the rest of their life. According to data from the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, a person with a spinal cord injury can expect to incur a million dollars or more in expenses over the course of their lifetime.
No one in New Jersey expects to be in car accident on any given day. However, motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent drivers happen every day, and can cause a person to suffer serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
