Spinal cord injuries tend to be permanent and, therefore, they can have a serious and lasting impact on a victim’s life. Many victims of spinal cord injuries are faced to deal with dramatic lifestyle changes in order to cope with their injuries. Diagnosing a spinal cord injury itself can be expensive, as it requires a victim to partake in costly medical procedures like a CT scan or an MRI. Further, rehabilitation after the injury can be both expensive and time-consuming.
It goes without saying that expenses associated with a spinal cord injury can vary widely. All of that said, victims can be compensated for medical bills, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and loss of future wages, to name a few. Only an experienced attorney who has seen a number of spinal cord injury cases will be able to properly assess the various methods of recovery available for a victim of spinal cord injury.
