Costs in SCI Cases
The astronomical costs associated with your spinal cord injury start with the injury itself and extend for months, years or even a lifetime. As a spinal cord injury victim, you can expect to incur significant expenses – in many cases, well over a million dollars. This is due to costs posed by surgery, trauma care, rehab, medical equipment, medication and long-term care.
The team at Kuzyk Law can help you recover those fees, which will far exceed anything the insurance company decides to give you.
