Impact Upon Victims

When a person is inflicted with an injury serious enough to cause paraplegia, there is typically a need for immediate and extensive medical treatments, such as surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, pain medication, and counseling. Victims may be bedridden for months before they are able to begin adjusting to their new way of life, and they often struggle to make ends meet because of the burden of medical bills and missed wages.
