A spinal cord injury is a catastrophic injury. In personal injury law, a catastrophic injury is one that will stay with the victim for the foreseeable future or for life. The spinal cord is a critical structure that is responsible for carrying messages from the brain to the body. When the spinal cord sustains serious or irreversible damage, it can lead to the loss of feeling and function below the point of injury, or paralysis.
A severe spinal cord injury can have many lifelong effects, including:
Every patient is unique. One victim’s experience with a spinal cord injury may not match your own, even with a similar diagnosis. Although there is no known cure for paralysis, with treatments such as surgeries, physical therapy and rehabilitation, you may be able to increase your independence and quality of life.
A serious spinal cord injury can cost millions of dollars over a victim’s lifetime in health care expenses alone. These expenses can include doctor’s appointments, specialists, tests and x-rays, surgeries, hospital stays, therapies, medications, medical devices, and live-in care. As the victim of a preventable accident in New Haven, you may be eligible for financial compensation for all of these medical costs and more.
The damages for which you could recover compensation include:
The list of damages related to a spinal cord injury is often long, as this injury can have lifelong ramifications. Before you accept a settlement from an insurance company, consult with an attorney to make sure you are not settling for less than your claim is worth.
