A spinal cord injury occurs when the spinal cord is damaged (for instance from a traumatic event such as a motor vehicle accident or fall) and results in paralysis (partial or complete). Paraplegia is the complete or partial paralysis of one’s legs typically resulting from damage to the spinal cord in the back. Quadriplegia is the complete or partial paralysis of all four limbs from the neck down resulting from damage to the neck.

Along with support from medical professionals, organizations such as Spinal Cord Injury BC (formerly the BC Paraplegic Association) offer tremendous support to help those with spinal cord injuries to adjust, adapt, and thrive. From a legal perspective, it is critically important to retain a lawyer experienced with handling spinal cord injury cases.
