A major accident is traumatic in a number of ways, but spinal cord injury can be catastrophic. It not only affects a person’s mobility; it can potentially lead to complete paralysis and/or chronic pain. If you have been in an accident and have suffered major damage to your spinal cord, call injury lawyers in North York who practice injury cases of this type: Rooz Law.
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 even be eligible for disability benefits (either short or long term) as a result of your spinal injury.
Just because you are not permanently paralyzed 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.
