Recoverable Expenses in a Spinal Cord Injury Case
Spinal cord injuries are some of the most expensive injuries for survivors in terms of medical care. A permanent spine injury may require lifelong medical treatments and therapies. Even a minor back injury could require thousands of dollars in checkups, treatments, and medications. A successful spinal cord injury claim in Missouri could result in compensation for many of your losses.
Medical expenses. Medical care for a spine injury survivor could mean surgeries, years of rehabilitation, speech therapy, physical therapy, medical devices, mobility-assistive devices, mental health counseling, home or vehicle modifications, live-in care, and medications.
Lost wages. You can seek recovery for the wages you lost while staying home from work because of medical care for your spine injury. If you had to give up your job permanently because of a disability, you could recover the amount of estimated lost future wages.
Pain and suffering. You could also be eligible to receive compensation for non-economic harm you experienced, including pain, suffering, grief, anguish, distress, trauma, humiliation, and lost quality of life. These damages can be extensive in permanent spinal cord injury claims.
A successful lawsuit may also lead to compensation for property damage repairs, lost quality of life, loss of consortium, attorney’s fees, punitive damages, and more. If your loved one died due to complications from a spinal cord injury, your family may also receive wrongful death damages, including compensation to pay for a funeral and burial.
