Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal Cord Injuries Can Have Life-Changing Effects. Personal Injury Lawyer Tim Leigh-Bell Can Help.

A spinal cord injury can permanently change your life and the lives of your family members. In many cases, these injuries require months or even years of therapy and rehabilitation. More severe cases can leave victims permanently disabled and in need of a lifetime of care. If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury in a serious accident, a personal injury lawyer can help you understand your rights and the benefits to which you may be entitled for your injuries and economic losses.

The Law Office of Timothy H. Leigh-Bell offers efficient, dedicated legal services to accident victims and their families in Mississauga, Milton and throughout the Greater Toronto Area. We understand the serious nature of your case. Our experienced legal team will protect your rights, seek to maximize your settlement and minimize the hassles of dealing with insurance agencies by negotiating on your behalf.

Compensation for Spinal Injury Victims

Spinal cord injuries are often caused by serious accidents such as car crashes, motorcycle accidents, other motor vehicle accidents, swimming pool accidents, sports injuries or falls from great heights. Depending on the location of the injury and severity of the damage, individuals could suffer from:

  • Total paralysis (quadriplegia)
  • Partial paralysis (paraplegia)
  • Temporary paralysis
  • Limited sensation and/or function in certain areas of the body (incomplete spinal injury)
  • Other types of nerve damage

Victims of spinal cord injuries often require ongoing care following initial treatment at hospital or rehabilitation centres to achieve maximum recovery. We work diligently to obtain coverage for unique expenses such as wheelchairs, occupational therapy, home modification, vehicle modification, vocational counselling and other rehabilitative needs.

You may also be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life as well as economic losses such as lost wages during recovery, loss of work capacity or loss of opportunity if your injury resulted in permanent disability. We will analyze your situation and provide straightforward advice about your options for pursuing maximum recovery.
