How much is a Spinal Cord Injury Lawsuit Worth?

There are no determinate values for a spinal cord injury lawsuit since injuries vary in degrees of severity, affecting individuals in a number of different ways. Many serious spinal cord injuries, especially those involving surgery, can cause lifelong disabilities and, as such, it is not uncommon for an experienced attorney to secure compensation in excess of $1 million for these types of lawsuits.

Importance of Hiring an Experienced Attorney

Although the potential for a sizeable verdict or settlement is high, the level of experience in your attorney is what will make the difference in the outcome of your case. Spinal cord injury cases should be handled by an attorney who has a deep understanding of spine injuries and what they entail and who has a successful track record of handling spine cases.

Attorneys lacking in experience may not grasp the significance of the particular type of spine injury involved and, most importantly, the potential for future problems downstream, especially in cases where multiple levels of the spine are fused. Only a lawyer who is experienced in successfully handling spine cases will understand how to best present the case – both to an insurance company during settlement discussions and later to a jury if the case cannot be settled – in order to maximize damages.

Damages That Can Be Claimed in Spine Injury Cases

The types of damages one can receive compensation for in a spinal cord injury case include past and future medical and life care expenses, past and future loss of earnings, past and future loss of household services, and, most importantly general damages.

General damages, sometimes referred to in shorthand as pain and suffering, is compensation for the past and future human losses the injured person has sustained. General damages include full compensation for physical pain, mental suffering, disfigurement, physical impairment, inconvenience, anxiety, humiliation, emotional distress, and, most significantly, loss of quality and/or enjoyment of life.
