Automobile Accidents: The Leading Cause of Spinal Cord Injuries

The leading cause of spinal cord injuries are automobile accidents. The automobile accident rate has increased over the years, probably relating to the fact that there are more cars and more drivers than ever before. Injury accidents vary in severity; what body part is injured and how severe the collision will determine the impact on a victim’s life. Unfortunately, more than half of the people who have been seriously injured in an automobile accident are between the ages of 16 and 30; to lose body function at such a young age is more than catastrophic.

If you have sustained a catastrophic spinal cord injury in an accident, whether the accident was your fault or not , you must speak to a skilled personal injury attorney who will help you pursue vital compensation you will need to live the rest of your life. Some states have no-fault statutes and benefits may be available to you even if you were the at fault party. Michigan, for instance, provides, by statute, an unlimited 1st party no-fault medical benefit, the only one of its kind in the country. If you are catastrophically injured, and have no-fault insurance (or were a passenger), you are entitled to lifetime medical. These are not easy cases for a victim to endure; you can count on your attorney to guide you through the maze of benefits and obstacles that make up our civil justice system. Your attorney will know how to fight for your rights. The astronomical cost of caring for someone with spinal cord injuries is overwhelming; your attorney will be well aware of this. That is why a victim’s rights attorney always goes to great lengths to uphold your rights against powerful corporate and insurance interests.

Speaking of financial matters, while your attorney is fighting to make your insurance company or the insurance company of the at fault party do the responsible thing, how will you, the spinal cord injury victim, pay your regular bills and expenses? How will you pay for the extraordinary expenses of medical, rehabilitation and/or orthopedic appliances while you wait for a verdict or settlement? The answer may be found in a little known service known as lawsuit funding, and you may be surprised to know that funding takes as little as 48 hours from the time of approval.

A lawsuit cash advance is not a loan; the money is predicated on your expected lawsuit results. If you win your case, you pay the advance back. If you lose the case, the legal finance company loses its money. This is called non-recourse lawsuit funding. If you are approved, you may use the money for any purpose, but we recommend using this valuable service for serious need only. Pay important bills like your mortgage, rent or car payment; pay for medical bills, therapy, prescriptions, ventilators, wheelchair, home modifications or a special vehicle for transportation and other incidental expenses a paraplegic or quadriplegic faces daily. There is no credit check and you don’t need to have a job to apply for litigation funding. You just need to have a pending lawsuit and a serious financial need. This may be the temporary solution you have been looking for while you wait for justice in the legal system.
