Spinal cord injuries are different than other types of injuries and require some extra considerations when determining fair compensation. It is important to factor in the future costs associated with the injury and not just the medical bills to date after the accident. The cost of specialized equipment and dedicated caregivers as well as the loss of companionship and victim’s pain and suffering may also be able to be taken into account.
