Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

Spinal cord injuries can be incredibly debilitating, frustrating, and burdensome for the injured party and their families. Aside from the excruciating pain of suffering such an injury and then going through the extensive medical treatment, the worst part is the negative impact it can have on your life. Routine tasks that were once simple such as exercising, walking your dog, or enjoying play time and physical activities with your kids may now be virtually impossible.

If you or one of your loved ones has suffered a devastating spinal cord injury in Ontario as a result of someone else’s negligence, our Toronto spinal cord injury lawyers at Mirian™ Law Firm are here to help with your case.

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?

A spinal cord injury is caused by moderate or severe damage to the spinal cord. This damage, whether it’s caused by a physical assault, a slip and fall, animal attack, or car accident can result in temporary or permanent impairment of the spinal cord.

Depending on the exact location and severity of the injury, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Loss of motor skills throughout the body
  • Minimal to extreme pain in the upper or lower back
  • Reduced or total loss of muscle functionality
  • Numbness or a tingling sensation throughout your extremities
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control
  • Frequent uncontrollable muscle spasms
  • Laboured breathing and difficulty coughing or clearing your throat
  • In extreme cases, Tetroplegia or paraplegia

Back injuries vary in degree of severity, but if you experience any one or more of these symptoms following a traumatic incident, you should seek immediate medical attention.

Once you’ve received a diagnosis and your doctor has implemented an appropriate treatment plan for your recovery, our spinal cord injury lawyers in Toronto and the GTA are prepared to start working on your case.

What are the Different Types of Spinal Cord Injuries?

Upper and lower back injuries come in a variety of forms and can occur anywhere and anytime. Common causes of a back injury include trauma endured in car accidents, slip and fall accidents, physical assaults, and sports injuries. In some cases, you might not even notice or feel the symptoms of a back injury until much later in life. That’s what makes them so hard to diagnose and litigate in personal injury lawsuits.
