Thousands of Americans suffer some level of spinal cord injury every year. Some of these injuries can be almost fully rehabilitated, but many spinal cord injury victims have to endure a lifetime of pain and disability. If you have sustained one of these injuries in an accident, contact the Quirk Law Group to get advice from a Compton spinal cord injury attorney.
Compensation for spinal cord injury lawsuits
When a person suffers a spinal cord injury, the effects can be devastating. For those who are fortunate, they will only suffer temporary disability and eventually return to a life that was much like the one that they lived before the injury. However, this is not the case for many people. Spinal cord injuries often lead to permanent disability and an inability for the individual to engage in many of the activities that had been a part of their life prior to injury.
As you can see, the impact of these injuries will often go far beyond that of economic loss. If another person is liable for the injuries that you have suffered, a personal injury lawyer will be able to help you recover compensation for the following.
- Lost income and a lost ability to earn an income
- All medical expenses related to the injury, both current and future
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
