Spine Damage is Usually Permanent

Even with recent advancements in medical treatments and technology, spine damage and spinal cord injuries are often permanent. If anything, the injury will only worsen as time passes and the original damage is exacerbated. If you have suffered a spine injury, then the unfortunate truth is that you might be affected by it permanently, which is something your doctor might have already covered with you.

Lifelong consequences of a catastrophic spine injury include:

  • Paralysis (quadriplegia or paraplegia)
  • Full body pain or numbness
  • Organ failures and related issues

Spine injuries also commonly cause mental health difficulties. Understandably, many spine injury patients become depressed while trying to adjust to their new lifestyles. A sudden loss of mobility and independence is disheartening and overwhelming. The compensation that you pursue in your spine injury case needs to reflect your mental and emotional anguishes in addition to your physical pain and disabilities.

What is a Spine Injury Case Worth?

The value of your spine injury case will depend on a variety of factors that comprise the case. Overall, though, the value will likely be steep. The permanent and widespread harm caused by a spine injury or paralysis will be shown in the case’s high worth.

Damages that might apply to your spine injury claim or lawsuit:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Lifelong physical therapy
  • Lost wages and reduced income
  • Cost of in-home or 24-hour care
  • Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
  • Reduced enjoyment of life

Insurance companies know that spine injury cases can get expensive quickly. The moment they see a claimant has filed such a case, they will jump to take action in their defense. You should not give them an advantage if you can help it, which usually means hiring an experienced spinal cord injury attorney in Scranton as soon as possible.

Do I Need a Lawyer for My Spinal Cord Injury Case?

While minor accidents may not always require a lawyer, if you have suffered a serious spinal injury that has prevented you from returning to work, or that will have lasting effects on your life, odds are you will be asking for a large settlement to offset these damages. Insurance companies oftentimes won't take your claim seriously unless they see that you are backed by a professional injury lawyer. By hiring a lawyer you give yourself the following benefits:

  1. An expert guide through the legal process
  2. The opportunity to focus on your recovery while we handle the legal matters
  3. Someone who can handle the insurance company on your behalf
  4. A professional who is able to accurately estimate the value of your claim and fight for fair compensation
