Spinal Cord Injuries
North Vancouver Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
Spinal cord injuries are some of the most severe injuries that can occur as a result of a car accident or other traumatic event, as they often result in permanent changes in strength, sensation and other body functions below the site of the injury. This sudden and unexpected disability and impairment of function can lead to lifelong medical needs, and can place a tremendous financial burden on an accident victim and their family.
Given the severity of this type of injury, the importance of access to quality medical attention and rehabilitation services cannot be understated. In the initial stages following such an injury a great deal of physical rehabilitation is often required to maximize a person post-accident mobility. Later, ongoing medical care, home modifications and other long-term assistance is required to assist in the transition to a new way of life. Therefore, if you or a loved one have suffered a spinal cord injury as a result of a car accident or other traumatic event, it is very important that you speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible about your legal rights.
