Spinal Cord Injuries Lawyer For North York

Serious spinal cord injuries are easy to diagnose as traumatic damage. They can result in severe, lifelong pain and disability that may include total paralysis. If your spinal injury is labelled catastrophic, you may be eligible for millions of dollars in compensation.However, even relatively minor injuries to your spinal cord may cause you damage and loss. Minor injuries to your back can be caused by a slip-and-fall, sports accident, motor vehicle accident, work-related strain or any other incident that puts strain or pressure on your spinal column. You may assume that they will heal quickly, but if you are still experiencing pain, stiffness, tenderness or diminished ability to work some time after your accident, you may need compensation for:

  • Lost wages while you recover
  • Costs of hospital, medicine or rehabilitation
  • Costs of personal care
  • Costs of retraining, if you are unable to return to your previous job
  • Care for yourself, your family and your home
  • Assistive devices such as wheelchairs, canes and modifications to your home
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses

You may even be eligible for disability benefits, either short or long term, as a result of your spinal injury.

Just because you are not permanently paralysed by a spinal injury does not mean that your life can go on as it was before. Spinal injuries, even minor hairline fractures, can cause loss of mobility, chronic pain and emotional difficulties that can severely impact your life.
