A diagnosis of paraplegia following an accident is devastating not only to those living with the injury, but also to their families. Financial compensation is a primary concern when facing overwhelming medical expenses and an uncertain future. Families should not have to meet the challenge of paraplegia, quadriplegia or other severe spinal cord injuries alone.
At Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP in Vancouver, our goal is to help you recover full and fair compensation for your severe spinal cord injury. Compensation for such injuries may include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, out-of-pocket expenses (including medical expenses), the cost of future care, past and future wage loss, and loss of earning capacity.
The Physical and Financial Challenges of Paraplegia
Many people with paraplegia regain independence through medical treatment and the use of assistive devices. However, the process can be long and costly, and taking the necessary time to gain such independence is important. Patients typically need time for physical and vocational and physical rehabilitation to get back to work.

We are able to access that care quickly for our clients through private referrals to an extensive network of specialists where medically necessary.
