When pursuing compensation for a spinal injury, the amount you may receive can vary significantly depending on several factors. These factors include the severity of the injury, the impact on your life, the circumstances of the accident, and applicable insurance policies. Here are the types of compensation you may seek with guidance from Woron and Dhillon, LLC, in Columbia, SC:

  1. Medical Expenses: Compensation can cover past, current, and future medical costs related to the spinal injury. This includes surgeries, hospitalization, doctor’s visits, medications, rehabilitation, assistive devices, and ongoing medical care.
  2. Lost Wages: If the injury has caused you to miss work, you may be entitled to compensation for your lost income, including wages, salary, and employment benefits.
  3. Pain and Suffering: Spinal injuries often result in significant pain, suffering, and emotional distress. Compensation may be awarded to address these non-economic damages.
  4. Loss of Consortium: Spinal injuries can impact personal relationships. In some cases, compensation may be available for the loss of companionship, support, and intimacy experienced by family members.
  5. Property Damage: If your property, such as your vehicle, was damaged in an accident that caused the spinal injury, compensation may cover the repair or replacement costs.
  6. Rehabilitation Costs: Spinal injuries often require extensive rehabilitation and physical therapy. Compensation can include the costs associated with these therapies.
  7. Home Modifications: If your home needs modifications to accommodate your spinal injury, such as wheelchair ramps or bathroom accessibility improvements, compensation may be available.
  8. Adaptive Devices: Compensation can cover the cost of adaptive devices and assistive technology required due to the injury.
  9. Transportation Expenses: Expenses related to transportation for medical appointments, therapy sessions, and daily living may be included in compensation.
  10. Future Damages: Spinal injuries can have long-term effects. Compensation may account for future medical expenses, ongoing therapy, and lost earning potential.
  11. Punitive Damages: In cases involving extreme negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party and deter future misconduct.
