People are injured in personal incidents every day, causing them to turn to Social Security Disability as a source of income. If ignored, they aren’t able to pay their bills, provide for themselves, or provide for their families. This causes a financial mess for many young individuals who were unfortunate enough to be injured or disabled.

15 to 24 year olds have the highest age specific rate of spinal cord injury with a focus primarily on young men rather than women.
There are many factors that contribute to the high injury rate for young people. Along with the fact that these individuals are now experiencing new levels of independence their inexperience with new situations causes them to be prone to make more mistakes, resulting in injury or disablement.
