Recovering Damages After a Spinal Cord Injury Accident

spinal cord injury Vehicle accidents and slip-and-fall incidents can cause spinal cord injuries, which are sometimes catastrophic—these injuries affect you for the rest of your life, often causing permanent disabilities. You can recover compensation for all your losses if you show the at-fault driver or person’s actions or inactions were negligent. A spinal cord injury attorney at Brown & Brown can help you settle or litigate your case and recover several types of damages.

Economic Damages

Most people recover economic damages after a spinal cord injury. These types of damages have a monetary value and include:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Replacement or repair of personal property damaged

Non-Economic Damages

Those who suffer long-term or permanent disabilities because of an accident or incident that causes a spinal cord injury could recover non-economic damages. These types of damages do not have a monetary value and include:

  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of companionship and/or consortium
  • Inconvenience

Punitive Damages

Some states allow you to recover punitive damages. You will have to show that the person or entity that caused your injuries was grossly negligent. Additionally, the process is longer, but in some cases, it may be worth the extra time to recover punitive damages.

Your spinal cord injury attorney will review the evidence in your case and let you know if you might qualify for punitive damages.
