Do not overlook the costs of medication when filing an injury claim. Doctors may prescribe to relieve pain, prevent inflammation, prevent infection, and for the many other complications that spinal cord injury patients might experience. Patients may also require medication to treat depression and anxiety that might be associated with a spinal cord injury.


Rehabilitation for spinal cord injury may include physical therapy to increase strength and improve mobility. Your doctor may include in-patient physical therapy in a rehabilitation facility to help you regain your voluntary functions. Patients may also go to outpatient physical therapy appointments for the rest of their lives.


Your claim may also include costs for any surgeries you require. Spinal cord injury patients may require surgery to stabilize the spine, treat conditions that cause spinal compression, and for other complications. 

Valuing Your Spinal Cord Injury Case

The amount of compensation we pursue depends on the type of treatment plan your doctor sets up for you. It should account for treatment you already received, as well as treatment you will require in the future.

In addition to the medical treatments listed above, you may also receive compensation to account for:

  • Home modifications
  • Vehicle modifications
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Loss of pension or benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Reduced quality of life
