Between 2008–09 and 2012–13, just over 1,200 people aged 15 and older sustained a traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI) in Australia, and were admitted to a specialist spinal unit. Roughly 80% of cases were males. Land transport crashes, including motor vehicles and motor cycles, contributed to more than two-fifths (43%) of traumatic SCI cases during this 5-year period. Falls (36%) were the second most frequent cause.
