Approximately 11,000 people sustain spinal cord injuries every year and currently about 700,000 people are living with spinal cord injuries.

Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are a severe disability and usually result in many medical bill and cause the person suffering from the spinal cord injury to be unable to work. When cash in-flow is low and output is high it results in a loss of money that the person is not used to and it is very hard to try to keep up with it. Those with spinal cord injuries are estimated to spend $14,000 to $127,000 a year on medical expenses connected to the spinal cord injury.

When faced with a spinal cord injury you could be eligible to receive Social Security Disability Benefits if you are unable to work or are unable to make a certain amount of money a month but to those suffering from a spinal cord injury it is crucial to get approved for Social Security Disability and to get approved in a timely fashion.  With the recent Social Security Disability backlog it is often difficult to get approved fast enough and sometime a disability application denial may mean that you are left without income for a long period of time.
