Abbotsford Lawyers for Spinal Cord Injuries

While any spinal cord injury can be difficult to recover from, severe spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia can be particularly devastating for patients and their families. Kane, Shannon & Weiler LLP supports those who have suffered serious spinal cord injuries in seeking the benefits and compensation they need to cope with such lifelong injuries.

Spinal cord injuries often require specialized medical treatment and extensive follow-up care. Even treatable injuries such as herniated disks can cause extreme pain and may limit an individual's mobility and ability to work for some time. Our firm assists those struggling with the effects of spinal cord injuries in obtaining accident benefits and compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Ongoing rehabilitation
  • Loss of income while treatment is ongoing
  • Potential loss of future income
  • Loss of enjoyment in life, if injuries lead to permanent disability

Those who suffer from paraplegia or quadriplegia may also be eligible to make a claim for long-term disability benefits. These cover the costs of any anticipated future medical care, mobility aids such as wheelchairs, attendant care, vocational counselling and psychological counselling to cope with the emotional effects of paralysis.

Disability benefits are often provided as a lump-sum settlement, so it is important to ensure all possible assessments for future needs have been made. Our lawyers are fully prepared to assist clients with claims that may require additional medical and economic assessments associated with their injuries to ensure a fair settlement.
