Economic Evaluation


The economic 2007 cost of SCI and TBI in Spain was examined by Garcia-Altes and colleagues (2012). Costs were calculated by combining prevalence data with estimates of resource utilization. From this, total direct and indirect costs for SCI resulting from a motor vehicle crash, or other causes, as well as TBI from a motor vehicle crash or other causes was calculated. The results presented here will focus on SCI (Table 18).

Total direct and indirect cost
SCI resulting from motor vehicle accident $279,533
SCI resulting from other causes $296.532
