You deserve compensation for a spinal cord injury

Living with a spinal cord injury is something no one wants to have to do; when you go from a fully functioning body to one that won't respond, it can not only be frustrating but result in the loss of your job or the ability to do the things you once loved.

Is there a cure for spinal injuries?

Despite advances in technology, there is no cure for a spinal cord injury. Once damage is done, it is difficult for the body to recover due to the way the nerves need to heal. Unfortunately, the spinal cord does not recover in the same way as other parts of the body, making any complete injuries likely to be permanent. Although a cure is not available at this time, those with spinal cord injuries can benefit from a number of potential treatments including rehabilitation, neuroprotection, assistive devices and others.

You may seek a lawsuit for a slip-and-fall accident

When you suffer a slip-and-fall accident, the last thing you think will happen is that you'll suffer a serious spinal injury. Unfortunately, even a short fall can result in fractures, disk dislocations and other issues as you attempt to catch yourself or impact your spinal column.

Left-hand turns are particularly dangerous for drivers

If you're involved in a left-turn accident, you probably already know that the person who turned left in front of you is likely to blame. In most cases, the person making a left-handed turn will be the one found to be at fault for a crash due to the way the road signals and layouts are designed; in fact, a 2007 study showed that around half of all crashes in intersections in Canada involved a left-turning vehicle.

Suffering from a drunk driving crash? You deserve to be heard

If you've suffered a spinal cord injury after a crash with a drunk driver, you know that the pain can be intense and lasting. One injury that you might be dealing with is a thoracic or lumbar spinal fracture. This fracture can cause moderate to severe back pain, and it gets worse when you move, making recovering very difficult.
