A serious spinal cord injury is a life changing event, with profound physical, emotional and financial consequences. Physically, there may be certain things you are no longer able to do by yourself, or for which you now need help. Emotionally, you are likely struggling to deal with your injury and loss of independence. Financially, you are likely wondering about the future, asking questions like:
“Will I be able to return to work?” and
“Who will look after things around the house?”
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury or spinal cord injury, you need a lawyer who understands what you are going through, someone who can help you with the medical and legal issues you face. More importantly, you need someone who will work to ensure you receive the care you need, such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, vocational counselling, attendant care, psychological counselling and nursing.
Depending on the cause of your spinal cord injury, a variety of types of financial assistance may be available to you, including,
- Canada Pension Plan disability
- Liability insurance (property or auto)
- No-fault insurance (auto)
- Long term disability insurance
At my law firm, I strive to ensure that cases are properly developed. I use my experience in personal injury to ensure the right medical specialists are obtained, and to ensure they are asked the right questions, such as, “would my client’s injuries have an impact upon their ability to work, do housework, look after their children” etc. Likewise, I use my experience and economics background to ensure that the necessary financial experts are retained, be they accountants, economists, actuaries or life care planners, so that financial losses can be accurately determined.
