Types of Damages Sought in Spinal Cord Injury Cases

By Grant Law Office on September 26, 2012

Victims of negligence or wrongdoing can pursue financial compensation for their injuries. Seeking professional help during the claim process is particularly important for individuals who have experienced a catastrophic injury such as spinal cord trauma. There are many damages to consider and accepting an inadequate claim will negate the victim’s ability to pursue additional compensation for the accident and injuries sustained.

Spinal Cord Injury Case

Every spinal cord injury case is different. The compensation available to the plaintiff usually depends on the facts and circumstances of the case. In all cases, it is necessary to prove the extent of the damages suffered. This process may require expert testimony that will establish the physical, psychological, financial, and emotional harm suffered by the victim. For example, surgeons, orthopedists, rehabilitation specialists, and other medical experts can help prove and establish the extent of the injuries suffered by the plaintiff.

There are many damages that can be included in a spinal cord injury case. Victims can pursue support for their medical care and their future rehabilitation needs, including the costs of vocational, occupational, and physical therapy. Other damages that can be awarded in a spinal cord injury case include: lost wages, loss of life’s enjoyment, loss of consortium, transportation, modifications to the home, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and other damages.
