How Can a Personal Injury Claim Benefit Me After a Spinal Cord Injury?

Posted on in Personal Injury Lawsuits

IL accident lawyerDamage to the spinal cord can lead to painful, debilitating symptoms. The spinal cord is responsible for sending signals from the brain to the body. A spinal cord injury can lead to loss of sensation, loss of motor function, and even paralysis. If you or a loved one recently suffered a spinal cord injury due to another party’s carelessness, you may have a right to compensation through a personal injury claim.

Holding a Negligent Party Accountable for Your Spine Injury

Spinal cord injuries are commonly suffered in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents, and other incidents caused by negligence. Whether your spine injury was caused by a drunk driver, distracted driver, negligent property owner, or another party, you deserve justice. A personal injury claim can help you hold the negligent party accountable for your debilitating injury. Personal injury claims are civil actions that are separate from any criminal consequences that the at-fault party may face. You can bring a personal injury claim in addition to criminal charges or in the absence of criminal charges.

Financial Compensation for Medical Bills and More

A spinal cord injury claim may also allow you to recover financial compensation for your damages. Spinal cord injuries often require significant medical treatment. You or your loved one may require CT scans, MRIs, and other expensive imaging tests. You may need surgery and considerable rehabilitative treatment. Compensation for your past medical bills and future medical costs may be available in a personal injury claim. You could also be compensated for your lost wages from missed work and for any harm to your future earning capacity. Compensation for non-economic damages including your physical pain, emotional anguish, and lost enjoyment of life may be recoverable as well.
