Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury (SCI) can affect every aspect of a person’s life.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a serious accident causing spinal cord injury, our team of specialized personal injury lawyers are ready to provide compassionate assistance and advocacy, and get you and your family the compensation you deserve.
The results of a catastrophic injury to the spine can include a disc herniation or an injury causing paralysis. Our first priority is to assess the long-term needs for medical care, rehabilitation, and assistive devices based on the severity of the injury suffered. Having helped victims on both ends of the spectrum, we understand the tremendous physical, financial and emotional implications of quadriplegia or paraplegia. Our firm works closely with medical experts, care specialists and other relevant professionals to ensure you receive the best treatment possible.
Those suffering severe spinal cord injuries are faced with a multitude of obstacles – from learning how to live independently, integrating accessible features into the household, or adopting new methods of communication, all while completing physical therapy and treatments. The losses extend well beyond physical impairments. Complete SCI’s have detrimental impacts on a victim’s quality of life, hindering their ability to carry out everyday tasks such as dressing, feeding themselves, and using the restroom. Seeking the help of personal injury experts is necessary to ensure you and your family receive retribution for damages including medical expenses not covered by OHIP, long-term medical costs, lost wages, pain and emotional suffering, lifestyle changes, and inability to partake in cherished activities.
Although nothing can alleviate your physical and emotional hardships, a fair settlement can ease the financial burden on you and your family, and most importantly, provide piece of mind.
Our long list of satisfied clients is a testament to our ability to deliver results. Our firm will ensure that all aspects of the claim are pursued fully in order for the victim and family to receive full compensation. While our focus is to settle your case without going to trial, your representation at Fox Vanounou Porcelli LLP will also advocate for your rights in court should the need arise.
