SPINAL CORD INJURY ACCIDENTS

According to Rick Hansen Institute, over 86,000 Canadians are currently living with a spinal cord injury*.

The spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the human body. Making up the central nervous system, it acts as the route for all nerve signals between the brain and the body. As such, any damage to the spinal cord can cause life-altering, irreversible damage. Often resulting in partial or complete paralysis, this is among the most harrowing injuries an individual can suffer. Changing the lives of casualties and their families forever, wading through vast amounts of medical and professional advice can be confusing. It’s distressing and overwhelming when you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury that wasn’t your fault. When things get tough, count on our spinal cord injury lawyers to look out for your best interests.

Spinal cord injury is commonly caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents and slip and fall accidents. Not only do victims have to deal with day-to-day issues resulting from a spinal cord injury but they may face employment, housing, education and mobility discrimination too. Placing a financial burden on those affected, our spinal injury compensation specialists are here to ensure you get the spinal cord injury settlement and disability benefits you deserve.

When spinal cord injury occurs, an immediate medical assessment is crucial to avoid further damage. Paralysis from a spinal cord injury will be referred to as tetraplegia, where arms, hands, trunk, legs and pelvic organs are affected or paraplegia, where all or part of the trunk, legs and pelvic organs are affected.

Symptoms of spinal cord injury include:

• Difficulty breathing
• Inability to feel heat, cold, or pressure
• Loss of bladder/ bowel control
• Loss of movement
• Muscle spasms

 

In the immediate aftermath of a car accident involving whiplash, a motorcycle collision or any other incident causing significant damage to the body, these emergency signs may prove spinal cord injury has occurred:

• Difficulty breathing
• Inability to balance or walk
• Loss of bladder/ bowel control
• Numbness of the hands and feet
• Paralysis in any body part
• Severe back pain or neck pressure
