Accessible House Built For Man With Spinal Cord Injury

Some of the most difficult impacts that individuals dealing with spinal injuries experience are related to issues of mobility. Some individuals are able to retain movement below the injury site and others do not. Whatever the case may be, supports are often needed to help these individuals get out of the house or even move through their own homes.

One Toronto man, who was paralyzed due to a severe spinal cord injury, was able to work around his mobility problems within his previous home by having a “universal design” home built.

In 2007, Domenic Cuda was involved in an ATV accident that forced him to rely on a wheelchair. After his accident, it became apparent that he needed a more accessible home. Cuda approached his former employer, Losani Homes, to build an obstacle-free home for him and his family. Thanks to his new universally designed home, he now has the ability to easily move within his own home and even tend to his own vegetable garden.

Unfortunately, ATV accidents that lead to spinal cord injuries and even death seem to be on the rise in Ontario. By mid-2015, it was reported that there were nine fatalities involving ATV’s. By contrast, in 2014 around the same time-mark, only one ATV injury had occurred.

Individuals who experience injuries due to an ATV accident are wise to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to pursue adequate accident benefits and compensation.
