What Compensation is Available for a Spinal Injury?
At The Floyd Law Firm, our St. Louis personal injury lawyers understand that no amount of money can make up for a spinal cord injury that may affect you for the rest of your life. However, we also recognize the peace of mind that can come with greater financial stability as you plan for the future. Our St. Louis spinal cord injury lawyers can fight for compensation for the following losses, and more:
- Past and future medical costs: surgeries, emergency care, physical therapy, rehabilitation, prescription medications, mobility-assistive devices, and around-the-clock care.
- Lost wages: reimbursement for wages lost from the date of the accident to the date that you file an injury claim, as well as lost future capacity to earn due to a long-term disability or paralysis.
- Pain and suffering: intangible losses from the injury, such as loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium, physical pain, emotional distress, mental anguish, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
We can seek compensation for all of your accident-related losses, which may include property damage, travel and transportation costs, and other out-of-pocket expenses. Our St. Louis spinal cord injury attorneys know how to negotiate insurance settlements as well as when to go to court on a client’s behalf. You can trust us to seek maximum financial compensation for you.
Types of Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord is a critical part of the body. A spine injury can have significant consequences for a victim. Even an injury that is classified as minor could lead to chronic pain, loss of mobility, and other long-term effects. The various types of spinal cord injuries include:
- Spinal concussion
- Vertebrae fracture
- Disc herniation
- Nerve damage
- Soft-tissue injury
- Cervical spine injury
- Thoracic spine injury
- Lumbar spine injury
- Sacral spine injury
- Complete spinal cord injury
- Incomplete spinal cord injury
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, etc.)
A severe spinal cord injury could result in a total loss of feeling (sensation) and motor function from the point of injury down, known as paralysis. It can also impact the function of the bowel, bladder, and sexual organs, as well as the respiratory system and ability to breathe. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for paralysis.
