Children With SCI
Compensation for Child Spine Injury Victims
Injuries impact children differently than adults, particularly in terms of recovery. In many cases, children simply recover better than adults. An injury that might have been traumatic for a 40-year-old may not be nearly as traumatic for a 10-year-old. However, the differences between child victims and adult victims are not entirely positive. There are challenges that arise for children that might not have arisen in spinal cord injury (SCI) cases involving adults. At Aitken Aitken Cohn, our attorneys know how to overcome these challenges.
Challenges in Cases Involving Children
In cases involving child spinal cord injury victims, our lawyers are well aware of the need to carefully review how the injury is going to impact all aspects of the child's life. How will it impact education? How will it impact socialization? Only with answers to these questions can we seek the appropriate amount of compensation.
Children have longer life expectancies than adults. This is a fact that changes the way we handle the case. If a spinal cord injury is severe enough to require continuing medical attention, we must work hard to get the compensation to cover the costs of that medical attention for the rest of the child's life, which is often a significant amount of time.
The way a child's body reacts to a spinal cord injury at first may not immediately reveal all of the problems that will arise over time. We work with top medical experts who have the ability to proactively spot potential problems, helping us ensure that the compensation we seek will be enough if such problems arise later on.
