Paralysis Injuries May Lead to Substantial Damages
First-time injury plaintiffs may not realize that the damages they’re entitled to receive can change significantly depending on the severity of their injury. Let’s take a look at a brief example that will clarify the concept.
Suppose that you are injured in a car accident by a distracted driver who was texting at the time of the accident. The defendant-driver was clearly negligent and is liable for the damages that you suffered as a result. Now, suppose that the accident could have led to one of two results: 1) you suffered a permanent paralysis injury, or 2) the impact spared your spinal cord, leading to broken bones and other non-paralysis injuries.
Though the damages in both scenarios are likely to be significant, the paralysis injury is certain to have fundamentally life-altering consequences and may give rise to larger damages claims as a result. For example, the paralysis may render you incapable of working for the rest of your life. You may even be rendered incapable of engaging in any recreational physical activities or sexual activities. The psychological burden of these impairments is likely to be damaging as well.
Damages for paralysis injuries may cover the following losses:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of marital consortium
- And more
Given that the damages are likely to be significant in a paralysis injury lawsuit, it’s important that you not only secure a “win,” but that the damages recovery you obtain closely reflects your actual losses. If your total damages are $1 million, for example, then a settlement compromise in which you receive $500,000 may not be satisfactory.
At the Florida Law Group, we are willing and able to pursue trial litigation when early compromises fail. This aggressive approach to litigation, as well as our reputation as tenacious litigators, allow us to exercise leverage during settlement negotiations, maximizing the potential damage recovery.
