Devastating Accidents That Can Cause a Spine Injury
Spinal cord injuries are often associated with particularly violent accidents that impact the back or neck.
We have seen spine injury claims originating from:
Medical errors are also a notable cause of spinal cord injuries. Surgeons, chiropractors, and other practitioners who are not careful with a patient’s spine or spinal cord can make one “small” mistake that changes the patient’s life forever.
Regardless of how you suffered your spine injury, BD&J can help you manage your injury claim. We know where to look for useful evidence that builds up your case and proves your argument. Everything from medical records to eyewitness statements can be powerful when implemented by a legal team as experienced as ours.
What Compensation Can You Get in a Spine Injury Case?
The compensation available in your spinal cord injury claim is unique to your case. There are many factors that can increase or decrease the final amount of damages you can hope to recover. We can help calculate what would be a fair settlement or verdict amount after tallying your damages, considering everything that you have already experienced and what is likely to come in the future.
Your compensation should help pay for:
- Emergency medical care after your accident
- Extended hospitalization
- Rehabilitative therapy for months or years
- Lost or missing wages
- Lessened enjoyment of life
- Pain, suffering, and emotional scarring
Another large factor of most spinal cord injury damages is the cost to adjust your entire life around your debilitations, disabilities, or paralysis. Many spinal cord injury survivors need their homes modified to accommodate wheelchairs. Others might be able to continue operating a car but only with unique modifications and technologies added to it. If you need to change your life because of an injury you did not cause, then we will fight diligently to get every penny to make those changes possible at no cost to you.
