What Damages Can I Demand for My Spinal Cord Injury?
As a victim of a catastrophic personal injury incident, you’re entitled to the damages you’ve sustained and any related future damages you may incur. These damages can be physical, mental, emotional and financial.
Through a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim, you could seek:
- Your physical damages: These include your physical pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and any disability you experience. Such damages may be intangible, but your attorney can place a monetary value on them.
- Your mental and emotional damages: Your injuries have left you suffering mental and emotional harm. Therefore, you can demand such damages as mental anguish and loss of enjoyment of life.
- Your financial damages: Since your incident, you may have bills piling up—bills for hospital stays, diagnostic tests, physical therapy, extended care, house cleaning and more. In addition, you might have experienced a loss in your earning potential and need to replace damaged property from the accident. You can include all these economic losses in your request.

How Can a Modesto Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Help Me Recover Damages?
One of our spinal cord injury lawyers can handle many tasks to help you recover the damages you both deserve and need. One of the first things your team will do is determine what damages you can claim, speaking with your doctor and other experts to gather information. Then, we’ll help you list those damages in your lawsuit or claim.
After they have prepared your claim or lawsuit, your lawyer will present it to the other party and attempt to negotiate a settlement with the insurer and opposing legal team. Generally, insurance companies want to avoid trial, so the insurer in your case may agree to negotiate in good faith to avoid trial.
However, some insurers refuse to negotiate fairly. If the insurer in your case takes this approach, your lawyer will ready your case for trial. Your lawyer will argue for a fair trial verdict at trial, presenting evidence and countering the at-fault party’s arguments before a judge and jury.
What Is My Modesto Spinal Cord Injury Case Worth?
We can’t make this determination without reviewing the details of your case. First, your spinal cord injury lawyer will need to know what all your economic and noneconomic damages are worth . For example, your lawyer can refer to your medical bills and speak to experts like a neurosurgeon to determine the value of your monetary damages.
Then, to calculate your intangible damages, such as your physical pain and suffering, your attorney must attribute monetary values to them. Your lawyer will use a formula insurance companies and other lawyers typically recognize. There’s a good chance the other party in your case will approve of the method your lawyer uses. If so, they might be more willing to approve a payout that fairly compensates the damages the at-fault party inflicted upon you.
