What damages can be recovered following a spinal cord injury?

California law attempts to balance the scales of what was taken from a person when he suffers an injury due to another’s careless conduct, including compensation for past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, surgery costs, lost income, diminished earning capacity, property damage, and pain and suffering.

Non-economic damages include:

  • pain and suffering
  • mental anguish
  • inconvenience
  • physical impairment or disability
  • disfigurement
  • loss of enjoyment of life
