Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury can change your life forever. Many spinal cord injuries typically occur as a result of automobile and recreational vehicle accidents. It could also be as a result of simply engaging in everyday activities. The severity of the injury to the victim and damage to the spinal cord may cause complete or partial paralysis to the legs and arms.
Based on the extent of the damage, the spinal cord injury may be deemed catastrophic. For car accident claims, catastrophic impairments have a specific definition under the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). Both paraplegia and quadriplegia are injuries defined as catastrophic impairments under the current SABS guidelines. A spinal cord injury has a dramatic impact on the lives of both you and your family members.
It is difficult navigating the system without help. Longo Lawyers work for the victim, achieving the compensation that is rightfully deserved after a life-altering injury. A victim of a spinal cord injury will require a comprehensive team of legal and healthcare professionals to ensure the necessary financial security and clinical support are in place throughout their lifetime. Home modifications, home-based care, medical treatments, emotional support systems and future healthcare costs are factors that must be taken into consideration after a spinal cord injury.
