If someone else’s negligence was the cause of your spinal cord injury in a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation.
Damages Other Than Medical Expenses and Loss of Income
In many spinal cord injuries, damages may be available that go beyond the initial medical expenses and loss of income. There may be long-term or lifetime consequences that also warrant compensation.
For instance, home modifications, such as a wheelchair lift, may be recoverable. If ongoing physical therapy will be required, compensation for this may be available.
Compensation can address a wide variety of needed medical treatments. For example, the victim of a spinal cord injury may suffer from emotional distress such as depression and/or anxiety.
With a spinal cord injury, other complications may lead to additional compensation. For example, the victim may require breathing assistance. This may lead to the need for mechanical respirator.
A spinal cord injury after a car accident can have devastating effects on a victim’s life. This is why it is best to seek legal counsel from an experienced attorney.
