What damages is a spinal cord injury victim entitled to?

The purpose of a personal injury award is to “make the victim whole” as they were before the accident. For example, the at-fault party is liable for medical expenses, loss of income, and pain and suffering. But a spinal cord injury victim often faces a permanent impact on their life. There is often medical equipment and ongoing medical care needed. They may also need modification to their home to make it wheel-chair accessible, as well as specially modified vehicles. These are all expenses that can be included in the final award or settlement the victim received.
