Toronto Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers
A spinal cord injury can lead to partial or complete paralysis of the arms or legs, as well as loss of sensation in certain areas of the body, muscle spasms, pain, and loss of bowel and bladder control. The degree of paralysis depends upon the level and the extent of injury to the spinal cord.
Pursuing Full Compensation and Benefits
The lawyers of McLeish Orlando LLP have been instrumental in obtaining compensation for the unexpected and often enormous health care costs associated with our clients' long-term needs for medical care, rehabilitation and assistive aids and devices. We also strive to obtain full compensation for loss of income and earning capacity, pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life.
In addition to obtaining compensation in a negligence claim for damages, if a client has suffered a spinal cord injury in a motor vehicle collision, we assist the injured person and eligible family members in obtaining their full and proper entitlement to the statutory accident benefits that are provided by the law of Ontario.
A Record of Success in Challenging Cases
Our law firm has achieved positive results for clients who sustained complete and incomplete spinal cord injuries, including those that resulted in hemiplegia, paraplegia and quadriplegia, also known as tetraplegia.
We work with a team of medical specialists and certified life care planners to project the future needs of the individual. Each recommendation in the life care plan is supported by a specialist in the appropriate field of medicine, from neuroscience to psychiatry.
Effective Use of Demonstrative Evidence
In addition to the testimony of medical experts, we use models, animation and other demonstrative evidence to explain how the spinal cord injury affects function. We may produce a day-in-the-life video to illustrate in a compelling manner the challenges our clients face because of the injury.
