Governor Jerry Brown signed crushing legislation back in the 70′s, that limits a wronged patient’s pain and suffering damages to $250,000 (Source.) The law was passed in response to a strike by doctor’s unions. After the law was passed, the California Supreme Court found it unconstitutional and when a new justice was ultimately appointed, the ruling was reversed. Of course back in the 70′s that was probably a lot of money for a person who was rendered disabled by a terrible quack. But clearly, today that may barely cover the attorney’s costs for discovery and the hiring of medical experts to prove your case. This means you need to hit the ground running right away from the time of your injury.
Spinal cord injury has become epidemic in modern society. Despite advances made in the understanding of the pathogenesis and improvements in early recognition and treatment, it remains a devastating event, often producing severe and permanent disability. With a peak incidence in young adults, traumatic spinal cord injury remains a costly problem for society.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, lifetime costs of care for someone with a serious spinal cord injury can range from $1 million to $5 million, depending on the age of the person at the time of injury and the severity of the injury. Improvements in rehab care are leading to longer life expectancy among patients with spinal cord injury — and bigger medical bills.!! #indianalawyer http://billhurst.com
