Suffered a spinal cord injury? Find the best legal representation in Toronto and Ontario.

A spinal cord injury extends far beyond physical pain, surgeries, and disruptions to daily life; it also carries a substantial financial burden. The costs associated with medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care can soar into the millions, making it essential to reach out to the legal team.

 

It’s a challenging time that brings about critical decisions regarding your immediate and long-term care. It’s completely natural to seek advice from the medical community, but it’s also important to consider the financial aspect. The complexities of spinal cord injuries include the need for customized care plans, specialized rehabilitation, and uniquely structured financial support for the affected individuals and their families.

With over 86,000 Canadians currently living with traumatic spinal cord injuries, and 4,300 expected to join this statistic by year’s end, our commitment to understanding the challenges of these unique cases is unwavering.

WHAT IS A SPINAL CORD INJURY?

Spinal cord injuries occur when there is damage to the nerves in your spinal cord as a result of a car accident, slip and fall or any other accident. Once you sustain a spinal cord injury, it usually leads to permanent complications in your body.

What are the symptoms?

  • Extreme pain
  • Weakness or loss of coordination
  • Paralysis
  • Numbness or loss of sensations in your hands and feet
  • Loss of bladder and bowel control

The spinal cord is a very sensitive extension of the brain and is as important as the brain or the heart when it comes to bodily functions. It communicates messages from the brain to the various parts of the body and regulates your ability to move.

Types of Spinal Cord Injuries We Handle at Claim Settlement:

Complete Spinal Cord Injuries

  • Quadriplegia (Tetraplegia): Our legal team specializes in cases involving quadriplegia that can cause damage to the spinal cord in the neck (between the first and fourth cervical vertebrae), this severe condition affects arms, hands, trunk, legs, bowel, and bladder. 
  • Paraplegia: This paralysis impacts all or part of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs. Typically arising from damage to the spinal cord in the thoracic (mid-back) or lumbar/sacral (low-back) region, paraplegia allows for preserved arm and hand functions.

Incomplete Spinal Cord Injury

The most common type, accounting for over 60% of spinal cord injuries, incomplete injuries occur when only part of the cord is damaged. This can result from tears, spinal cord compression, or other injuries. Individuals with incomplete injuries may experience partial paralysis but retain some feeling and voluntary movement on one or both sides of the body.

  • We recognize the challenges presented by partial paralysis, resulting from tears, spinal cord compression, or other injuries.
  • Our legal experts work to secure settlements that comprehensively address ongoing challenges, while acknowledging retained feeling and voluntary movement on one or both sides of the body.
