The Consequences of Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries, like brain injuries, are catastrophic in nature. In most cases, the victim will face severe, lifelong consequences, including partial or complete paralysis. Sadly, there really is no such thing as a “minor” spinal cord injury, as even relatively less severe injuries can lead to loss of fine motor skills, difficulties breathing, and immense physical pain and emotional distress.
While financial recovery cannot undo the suffering you have been through, it can ease some of the challenges ahead. A personal injury claim allows you to seek compensation for the following damages:
- Medical expenses, including immediate emergency treatment and ongoing care
- Medical equipment and related devices, such as wheelchairs and ramps
- Loss of past and projected future income/loss of earning ability
- Pain and suffering, including emotional distress caused by the accident/injuries
- Loss of financial support (if your loved one was the primary breadwinner)
- Disfigurement and/or loss of quality of life
In certain rare circumstances, you may also be able to pursue punitive damages, meant to punish the liable party for egregious negligence.
