Every day in the United States, dozens of people suffer spinal cord injuries. Spinal cord injuries can have life-long consequences that can leave victims unable to work or perform normal tasks. When it comes to determining compensation for a spinal cord injury, there are many factors that must be considered by the courts and our experienced injury lawyer.
How Compensation is Determined
In any spinal cord injury lawsuit, the compensation that is awarded depends on the individual circumstances of the case. The primary factor that will determine the value of a case is the severity of the spinal cord injury. Compensation may be awarded for medical bills, loss of income, disability, long-term care requirements, or other harm. However, it is important to understand that it can be an expensive type of case to pursue. There may be fees for independent medical experts, court costs, and gathering evidence and witnesses.
