Ottawa Back Injury Lawyer

Spinal cord injuries create challenges for entire families. At Howard Yegendorf & Associates, we know that victims of these injuries very often require advanced medical care for as long as they live. In fact, 84 percent of people who suffer spinal cord injuries in Canada are under the age of 34, leaving them with the tragic possibility of decades of pain and lack of mobility, difficulties working, and expensive medical treatment that is not covered by OHIP. If you need to speak with an Ottawa back injury lawyer, we’re always here to help.Our lawyers are dedicated to achieving favourable outcomes for individuals with spinal cord injuries in personal injury claims.

Our lawyers have nearly 50 years of combined experience and are fully equipped to pursue full and fair compensation for the victims of spinal cord and back injuries, including those suffered due to motor vehicle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and injuries caused by dangerous products.

  • Loss of bowel and bladder control
  • Constant tingling in the arms and legs
  • Problems sensing heat and cold

Consumer products must additionally meet the requirement that they are reasonably fit for the purpose for which they are sold.
