Spinal Cord Injury
A spinal cord injury can change your life forever. Many spinal cord injuries occur as a result of automobile and recreational vehicle accidents, while others may occur while taking part in various other activities. Depending upon the severity of the injury to the victim, damage to the spinal cord may cause complete or partial paralysis to the legs and or arms. There may also be changes to physical independence and bodily senses.
Based on the extent of the damage, the spinal cord injury may be deemed catastrophic. Catastrophic impairments have a specific definition under the Ontario Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule (SABS). Both paraplegia and quadriplegia are injuries defined as catastrophic impairments under the current SABS. Regardless of the situation, a spinal cord injury has a dramatic impact on the lives of both you and your family members.
