Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
If you have ever experienced back pain, you know how debilitating it can be. A spinal cord injury causes pain and disability on a much larger scale. These painful injuries can be obtained during a car crash, slip and fall or other accident and can take years to heal – some spinal cord injuries never heal, leaving their victims in a wheelchair.
Such injuries often damage the soft tissue, nerves, and bones surrounding the spinal cord. They may result in partial or full paralysis and can even shorten the life expectancy of the victim.
A spinal cord injury can have a devastating impact on someone’s life and the lives of their loved ones. On top of the physical and emotional consequences, there are other issues such as care costs, house and car modifications, loss of income, and immediate need for acute rehabilitation and retraining.
Many of the financial costs are hard to foresee at the time of injury and arise later in the injured person’s life. This can make the legal and insurance maze even harder to navigate. At Hooper Law, our team of spinal cord injury lawyers understand these issues and have years of experience helping people like you. We fight hard to get you and the ones you love the care, benefits, and compensation you deserve, leaving you free to concentrate on your rehabilitation.

Muir v. City of Brantford - May 7, 2010 A case in which the Plaintiff (represented by Rob Hooper) was rendered a quadriplegic after losing control of his bike in an attempt to avoid two pedestrians traveling towards him off the side of the bike trail located along the Grand River in the City of Brantford. The trail had little to no recovery zone at the area where the incident happened, in addition to the presence of loose rocks and boulders. The Plaintiff brought an action against the City of Brantford alleging that the City acted with reckless disregard in designing, building and maintaining the trail and thereby breached a duty owed to him. The failure of the City’s inspection system to notice and address unraveling pavement and the presence of loose rocks and boulders in such a dangerous location on the trail was considered “reckless disregard.” The City, however, was found to have shown no “reckless disregard” with regards to the location of the trail or the standards in designing the trail. The Plaintiff was found 60% contributorily negligent for the incident. The Judge awarded the Plaintiff $1,116,220.70.
