Spinal Cord Injury

At Oatley Vigmond, we understand that the best recovery outcomes require more than competent legal representation. Because personal injury cases take an average of two years to reach their conclusion, immediate and ongoing support is often required. Knowing this, we stand by our clients from their first call to their final contact with our firm, ready to accommodate their needs both inside and outside of the courtroom.

PEOPLE COME FIRST – Oatley Vigmond’s Mandate

Our Oatley Vigmond team is passionate about the well-being of our clients. This is demonstrated by our policy of no-charge consultations and no legal costs unless your traumatic spinal injury case is successful.

Most individuals suffering from traumatic spinal injury are hospitalized for extended periods. They are often rendered incapable of returning to work. Paying for rehabilitation and intensive care is hard enough; having to plan financially for a life without employment income can be overwhelming.

We help our clients achieve financial security so that they can look past these stressors and focus on their recovery. Spinal injury survivors who have chosen the Oatley Vigmond team have consistently obtained settlements that help them achieve stability and normalcy.

Part of our commitment to our clients’ well-being involves engaging with high quality health care specialists to assist with the recovery process. We connect traumatic spinal injury survivors with psychiatrists, neuropsychologists, speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, social workers, rehabilitation support workers, and more.

TRANSPARENCY – Understanding Our Approach to Spinal Injury

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is a life changing event. Apart from the significant pain caused by the injury, a person who has suffered an SCI requires extensive treatment and support in order to maintain a semblance of a normal life.

The losses associated with a spinal cord injury are tremendous. Not only does the victim require significant medical and rehabilitation support, but simple tasks need to be done with the support of an attendant. Many everyday activities, such as the ability to use the washroom or prepare a simple meal may require substantial assistance. The cost of obtaining this type of support over a lifetime is in the millions.

The personal injury lawyers at Oatley Vigmond work with a range of medical experts to help plan your future care needs. They are dedicated to ensuring you receive the most compensation possible to allow you to cover the cost of care and support.


When you choose Oatley Vigmond Personal Injury Lawyers LLP, you are recruiting a multidisciplinary suite of carers who are fully invested in your recovery. Securing adequate financial compensation is only one part of our promise to you. From the first point of contact, we begin assembling a care team that will handle all of your legal, insurance, and medical needs. During our 40-year history, we have cultivated an extensive network of health care specialists that can be drawn upon to accommodate any treatment required for your long-term well being. Our skilled Accident Benefits Specialists take an active role in developing a comprehensive community care program that will help your family recover from this devastating ordeal.


There is no cure for the permanent impairments resulting from SCI, but proper compensation can help victims overcome the personal and financial losses that they are forced to endure. Oatley Vigmond Personal Injury Lawyers LLP have secured multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements to cover the costs of specialized physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation support workers, accessibility modifications for residences and vehicles, and more. Operating under the highest standards for ethical conduct, professionalism, civility, and collegiality, our legal team has secured some of the largest verdicts and settlements in Canadian history:

  • $24-million verdict in favour of a young male passenger who suffered spinal cord injuries during a drunk driving incident. This case stands as the largest joint damages verdict awarded in Canadian history.
  • $4.7-million settlement paid to a 19-year old college student injured after the municipality was found guilty of neglecting to maintain safe road conditions.
  • $2.5-million settlement awarded to a mother of three who suffered severe spinal injuries as a result of municipal failure to practice proper winter road maintenance.
  • $2.3-million settlement awarded to a single mother in her 30’s after an ATV crash left her with catastrophic brain and spinal damages. Oatley Vigmond Personal Injury Lawyers LLP also assembled an integrative rehabilitation team to provide ongoing attendant care, housekeeping, and home maintenance.
