There is no cure paralysis resulting from a spinal injury. No amount of money can make up for the loss of enjoyment of life, the emotional distress, and the psycho-social afflictions that often accompany a serious spinal cord injury. However, if the injury occurred because of another person’s negligent or deliberately wrongful actions, the injured party is entitled to financial damages. These damages may be used to pay for:

  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Future long term care
  • Lost wages
  • Punitive damages for pain and suffering
