Approximately 20,000 Ontarians live with a spinal cord injury and there are an estimated 1,200 new cases each year.
As spinal cord injury lawyers in Brampton, we help people across the Greater Toronto Area when their injury was caused by the negligence, carelessness, unlawful behavior, poorly maintained equipment, unsafe conditions, or a lack of adequate supervision at a school, college, or university.
Most spinal cord injuries are caused by one of about five reasons:
- Car and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of spinal cord injuries and account for nearly half of all new such injuries every year
- Workplace accidents
- Sports and recreation injuries
- Alcohol-related incidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
Repairing A Damaged Life
When you suffer a spinal cord injury, recovery is slow, painful and expensive. If the damage is permanent and you are confined to a wheelchair, the injury can destroy your plans for enjoying your family as you once did, participating in fun activities, pursuing your job or career, or generally living a full life.
Money cannot return these things to you. But it can cover the ongoing costs of care and treatment whether it’s provided by healthcare professionals or by a family member. At the same time, you will need to replace your lost income – both your current salary and what you might have earned had you not been hurt so badly.
At Gosai Law, we handle spinal cord injury claims with the care, compassion, and attention you deserve.
We conduct a thorough investigation into the cause and future impact of your spinal cord injury. We use that information to assess what your needs are now and what they will likely be in the years to come. We work with the medical, rehabilitation and qualify-of-life professionals to help you develop an action plan that fits your situation.
