Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

June 21, 2015

The most common form of paralysis is a result of spinal nerves becoming damaged. A spinal cord injury can permanently change a person’s motor skills, strength, senses, and emotional state. Whether a complete or incomplete paralysis, the victim will have an altered lifestyle.

A complete spinal cord injury results in paralysis below the site of the injury. There’s no feeling or movement and both sides of the body are affected equally. An incomplete spinal cord injury occurs when only part of the cord is damaged. People with incomplete injuries may retain some feeling and movement. Thanks to advancements in medical treatment, incomplete injuries have become more common.

There are approximately 86,000 Canadians who are coping with spinal cord injuries. This number is added to every year, with another 4,300 more people experiencing injuries to their spines. That means there are 11 people each week who are diagnosed with a spinal cord injury.

Whether these injuries occur from sport related accidents, vehicle collisions, falls, or disease; the cost can range from $1.6 to $3 million for financial care. When these injuries are the result of another party’s negligence, it’s important to find the proper legal representation.

It’s important to have a lawyer who is qualified to handle your case. While being in an injury can be a devastating experience, the team at Pace Law Firm will fight to make sure you have the right representation. You also don’t have to pay until they win or settle your case.
