What Damages Am I Entitled To for My Spinal Cord Injury?
Spinal cord injuries cannot be cured at this moment by the science and medicine that’s currently available to us. To this end, the law must step in to give the spinal cord injury patient some kind of reprieve so they are able to live a life that is full and one which they can achieve their goals, albeit using a different route. Damages are payments that are done to compensate injured victims in order to make them whole again. Of course, no amount of money will help magically cure you from your spinal cord injury, but it can go a long way in ensuring that you get the treatment and peace of mind you truly deserve after someone else’s negligence put you in your current position.

Past and Future Medical Expenses
If your case has merit, we’ll be able to recover money damages for things like ambulance bills, doctor and hospital bills, the cost of your prescriptions and so on that you incurred in the past prior to us taking on your case. In addition, we will recover compensation for the cost of future rehabilitation, the cost of having live-in care, future surgeries, the cost of oxygen tanks or a respirator, medical adjustments around the house and so much more. In fact, cost of future medical expenses will take up a big chunk of your damages due to the prohibitive cost of medical care in the country as well as the cost of round-the-clock care you may need as is typical for spinal cord injury victims.
Lost Wages or Income
It is estimated that the average spinal cord injury victim may need up to 2 years to get to Maximum Medical Improvement. This may mean extended periods of time recuperating at home instead of going to work. All the days and hours that you missed were due to your injury, and it’s only fair that you ask for compensation for lost wages. In addition, you may be able to sue for the wages you would have earned between your date of injury to the time you would have retired.
For the injuries that you cannot see or quantify, you may be able to sue for non-economic damages. This includes things like pain and suffering, mental anguish experienced after the accident that caused your injury, loss of consortium which is the loss of support, companionship and love that your spouse will miss from you due to your injury.
