How Much Is a Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit Worth in CA?
Compensation for a spine injury may amount to tens of thousands of dollars or millions of dollars. Not every case will fall within these parameters, though.
Every spinal injury case is different, because there are so many different types of injuries. Some will require weeks or months to heal; others will result in a lifelong disability.
To get an estimate for your specific case, speak to a qualified lawyer.
What Compensation Can I Get for Spinal Cord Injury Recovery?
In general, personal injury victims are compensated for the following damages after a spinal cord injury:
- Hospital treatment following the accident
- Physical therapy and rehabilitative care
- In-home care
- Ongoing medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of wages
- Reduced earning capacity
You may be entitled to some or all of the damages above. The facts of your case—and to what extent the injury has impacted your life—will play a major role in how much you will be compensated.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury can lead to a variety of symptoms and hardships. That’s why it’s so crucial to visit a doctor after being involved in an accident. Make sure to also look out for any early symptoms of spinal cord injury.
If you’ve been injured, it is recommended that you work with a lawyer who understands the complexities of your injury. At Harris Grombchevsky LLP, we take on cases over both complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries.
Incomplete vs. Complete Spinal Cord Injuries
In an incomplete, or “partial,” spinal cord injury, a person may still have sensation and possess limited movement below the injured area. Recovery is typically possible.
On the other hand, in a complete spinal cord injury, a person suffers a permanent loss of mobility and sensation below the injured area. A full recovery is not usually expected.
Quadriplegia and Paraplegia
Spinal injuries are also often classified according to which parts of the body have been affected:
- Quadriplegia/tetraplegia: when paralysis affects a majority of the body, including arms and legs
- Paraplegia: when paralysis affects only the lower half of the body
In the worst cases, such injuries are irreversible, disabling, and require ongoing, round-the-clock care. And while individuals can still lead fulfilling lives after a spinal cord injury, there will be a tremendous amount of medical, physical, emotional, and financial obstacles to overcome.
