Spinal cord injuries can vary in severity significantly; therefore, there is no standard value for this type of injury. In many cases, severe spinal cord injuries can cause lifelong disabilities, meaning that they can be worth over $1 million if you have an experienced attorney on your side.
Your chance for a sizeable settlement is automatically high; however, an experienced attorney will increase both your odds and the size of the compensation. If you have a spinal cord injury, you should seek the assistance of an attorney who has a deep understanding and successful track record with spinal injuries. They will know how the injury will affect your life, and even be able to recommend doctors who have had success with these types of injuries. Seeking the help of an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer will also mean your compensation will include any difficulties and medical needs that may arise in the future. Your attorney will be knowledgeable enough to present the case in the most favorable light, both for the insurance company, and if necessary, a judge and a jury in court.
The compensation for a spinal cord injury can include things like:
- Medical and life care expenses, both past and future
- Loss of earnings, both past and future
- Loss of household services both past and future
- Pain and suffering (physical and mental)
- Loss of quality and enjoyment of life
- Physical impairment
- Emotional distress
