Spinal cord injuries, whether relatively mild or very severe, typically have an immense impact on both victims and their families. These types of injuries often require lengthy hospitalization, extensive medical treatment, and ongoing care. This, coupled with the victim’s temporary or permanent inability to return to work, can create a serious burden for victims and their loved ones.

Compensation for Spinal Cord Injury Victims
As previously mentioned, the cost of treating spinal cord injuries can be exorbitant. Depending on the type of spinal cord injury you have suffered—whether it results in partial or complete paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, etc.—you may be facing a lifetime of unanticipated costs. And, of course, this is on top of the immense physical and emotional impact spinal cord injuries often have on victims.
In filing a personal injury claim against the liable party, you may be able to recover compensation for the following:
- Immediate emergency medical treatment and hospitalization
- Ongoing care, including surgeries and physical rehabilitation therapy
- Pain management programs, including medication plans
- Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs and ramps for your home
- Lost wages/income for time taken off work
- Reduced or lost earning capacity if your injuries prevent you from returning to work
- Pain and suffering, emotional distress, and lost/reduced quality of life
This list is not exhaustive; depending on the specific details involved in your case, you may be able to recover compensation for additional damages, such as punitive damages. Speak to our attorneys about your case to learn more about your options.
