A spinal cord injury is one of the most difficult car accident injuries for doctors to treat. It can also be one of the most costly injuries to treat and try to recover. Indeed, California residents who suffer a spinal cord injury generally have a long road to recovery ahead of them and it is likely that they will never recover fully.
Due to the high cost, pain and suffering, disabilities and other harsh consequences associated with a spinal cord injury, those who suffer such an injury due to another party’s negligence may want to seek claims for financial damages in civil court. In some cases, such a claim could be the only chance that a victim has for getting the money to pay for his or her medical care and recovery.
At Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, we know how difficult life can be for a spinal cord injury victim. We also know that the extent of one’s injuries may not be immediately apparent until after some time has passed since the event, and until after a certain amount of healing has occurred. For this reason, we will not finalize an individual’s damages claimed until after we are medically certain that the full extent of his or her injuries have been revealed — both after sufficient time has been given for healing to occur and after an expert medical review of the individual’s injuries has been completed.
Even the most minor medical treatments for various conditions are exorbitantly expensive these days, and spinal cord injury treatments are absolutely unaffordable. This is why it can be vital for injured California residents to pursue claims for restitution following such an injury in a car accident that was caused by another individual’s negligence.
In addition to money for medical care, injured victims of car accidents may also be able to seek other damages depending on the nature of the suit at hand.
