Vancouver Lawyers for Spinal Cord Injury Claims

Trauma to the spinal cord is one of the most serious injuries that can arise as the result of a car accident. Spinal cord injuries can range in severity, from compression fractures to permanent paralysis. These injuries can dramatically alter an individual’s life, and without experienced and knowledgeable legal representation you risk settling your ICBC claim for less than you are entitled to.

Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP is one of Vancouver’s most respected law firms for personal injury litigation. We have acted for a number of individuals who have suffered debilitating spinal cord injuries in a variety of types of accidents, including car accidents and sporting activities such as skiing and snowboarding.

We strive for excellence in our practice and maintain a consistent focus on client care. You can come to us with your questions and expect straightforward advice and strong advocacy.

Working Side by Side With Medical Teams

Paraplegia and quadriplegia involve the impairment of motor and sensory function in the legs and in part or all of the trunk and arms resulting from an injury to the spinal cord below the level of the neck. These injuries have a devastating effect on the victim’s life. The recovery process is extremely challenging — not only for the victim, but also for his or her family.

Experienced, effective legal representation throughout your claim can ensure that you receive full and fair compensation for these devastating injuries. Compensation for spinal cord 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.

At Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP, we understand the importance of prompt access to specialized medical care for those who have suffered a spinal cord injury. We are able to access that care quickly for our clients through private referrals to an extensive network of specialists where medically necessary. Call our lawyers to find out more about this very important service that we offer to our clients.

Our lawyers work closely with members of your medical team who are tasked with devising and executing an appropriate plan for treatment. Because we work closely with you, your family, and your doctors, our lawyers can identify all of the ways in which your spinal cord injury has impacted your life, making us well-positioned to advocate on your behalf and pursue compensation for all relevant damages.

Armed with the best medical evidence available, the lawyers at Sugden, McFee & Roos LLP are able to advance an effective spinal cord injury claim through ICBC, ensuring that our clients receive full and fair compensation for these life-changing injuries.
