Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal Cord Injuries

Suffering an injury to your spinal cord may prompt feelings of uncertainty and fear.

You may be asking yourself the following questions:

  • How will I afford the medical bills for the treatment I need?
  • Will I be able to keep my job?
  • How will I afford the medications?
  • Will I need to be in a wheelchair?
  • Will I be able to make the necessary life changes while simultaneously continuing to deal with medical repercussions?

At Kornfeld Law, we can help answer those questions and more.

The Issues with Spinal Cord Injuries

Similar to brain injuries, spinal cord injuries have the potential to be catastrophic. It is common for spinal cord injury victims to be faced with severe, lifelong aftereffects which may include fractional or full paralysis. Unfortunately, “minor” spinal cord injuries do not exist. This is because even seemingly insignificant spinal cord injuries may lead to the loss of fine motor skills, breathing difficulties, tremendous physical pain, as well as emotional distress.

Even though financial compensation will not be able to take your injuries away, it may help reduce some of the challenges you’ll be faced with. You may seek compensation for the following damages if you file a personal injury claim:

  • Medical costs, which include immediate emergency care as well as ongoing treatment.
  • Medical equipment and relevant devices, like wheelchairs and ramps.
  • Current and future income loss as well as your loss of earning ability.
  • Pain and suffering, which includes emotional distress as a result of the accident or your injuries.
  • Financial support decrement if your loved one was the primary breadwinner.
  • Disfigurement and/or quality of life losses.

In addition, certain uncommon circumstances may warrant punitive damage awards as well. These kinds of damages are designed to punish the liable party for egregious negligence.
