As we recently discussed, spinal cord injuries are costly injuries. For many people who suffer these injuries, thinking about the cost is enough to bring sheer terror to their world. When the accident wasn't your fault, these thoughts can be devastating. In this case, you might decide that you are going to take action to reduce the financial impact of the crash.
We can help you to learn about what types of damages you might seek compensation for. You might be surprised at some of the damage types that you might be able to claim. Pain and suffering, medical bills, loss of consortium, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages and other damages are often possible in these cases.
This brings up an important point -- you need to keep track of how your life has changed since the accident. In some cases, keeping a journal can accomplish this. You should include even seemingly little factors that have changed. For example, if you can't check the mail now or you are unable to do your previous job, include those factors in your journal. If you need help getting dressed now or can't cook for yourself, write those down.
When you seek compensation, the more information you have, the better. We can help you to find out what information you need so that we can build your case. We know that you have a lot on your plate right now. We can help you with the legal components of your life so that you can work on healing and learning ways to cope with the limitations that you face now.
