You have no doubt heard that teenagers account for a disproportionate number of auto accidents, but you may not know how many of these accidents result in spinal injury and paralysis. The latest statistics bear out this grim reality: Over 12,000 people suffer spinal injuries on our nation's roadways each year, and nearly half of these injuries are sustained by people under the age of 20. That's why teenagers and paralysis remain an active area of concern for politicians, lawmakers, juries and parents.
Paralysis: a Tragedy
While any injury that involves a loss of sensation or function may rightly be considered catastrophic, the situation grows more agonizing still when a young person is injured in this way. Teenagers who suffer paralysis in a car accident have most of their lives ahead of them, of course, and that can mean repercussions for qualify of life and medical expenses that dwarf anything a middle-aged victim might encounter. This is why it is important to retain an experienced attorney if a teenager in your family has been injured in this way.
What can the law do to address your situation? Medical miracles are rare, but the surest way to slow that recovery is by using inadequate treatment. Most families with a teenager who has been paralyzed in a car or motorcycle accident cannot possibly afford the kind of 24-hour care that may be required indefinitely, and insurance companies are notoriously reluctant to cover such bills completely. When you work with an effective personal injury attorney, you can sure your case finds its way into the courts and onto the desks of decision makers who may prefer to settle than risk a public outcry.
