The spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that extends from the base of the brain to the lower back/pelvis. The brain and spinal cord together make up the central nervous system, which controls the messages your nerves send to all other parts of your body to manage your voluntary (muscle movement) and involuntary (temperature regulation and blood pressure) functions.
Victims of spine injuries, as well as their close friends and families, will require lawyers with specific expertise in the medical, physical, financial, and emotional impact on the victim. Our legal team has represented numerous clients who sustained catastrophic injuries and understand that injuries to the spinal cord have long-term consequences that must be addressed early to ensure that the victim’s health is not irreparably harmed.
Injuries to the spinal cord are often permanent and life-changing. They have a dramatic effect on the lives of victims and their families. The Ottawa lawyers at our firm have the knowledge and practical experience in spinal cord injury litigation necessary to ensure you receive full and fair compensation for all expense and suffering.
The costs to care and support a victim of a serious spinal cord injury over his or her lifetime are staggering. We can calculate those costs for settlement purposes.
