An Attorney Is Necessary For These Cases
Spinal cord injury cases are often incredibly complex. An Ontario spinal cord injury lawyer will have the experience and the resources at their disposal to take on any opponent. These cases often involve:
An extensive investigation into the cause of the incident.
Working with medical experts to determine the total cost of care expected during the victim’s lifetime.
Extensive negotiations with the defendant’s insurance carrier and legal team to reach a fair settlement.
If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your Ontario car accident attorney will prepare to take your case to trial. Individuals do not have the financial resources or experience necessary to handle all of these steps.
Spinal Cord Injuries Are Devastating
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) says that there are approximately 300,000 people living with disabilities from spinal cord injuries in the United States. There are around 18,000 new spinal cord injury cases each year. The NSCISC states that these injuries primarily occur due to:
Vehicle accidents (38.3%)
Sports and recreation incidents (8.2%)
Medical or surgical mistakes (4.6%)
Treating these injuries can be costly. For the first year of care alone, costs range from $359,000 to over $1.1 million, with each following year of care ranging from $43,000 to $191,000. This does not factor in non-medical costs such as the loss of income or future earning capacity of the victim, costs to modify vehicles or homes, or the immense emotional and psychological damage of the victim and their family.
