A spinal cord trauma can occur from a variety of activities such as a sporting accident, an accident or some are born with it. When you have a spinal cord injury it can change the way the spinal cord functions causing either temporary or permanent damage.
When a spinal injury occurs individuals will experience a loss of muscle function, sensation and/or autonomic functions of the parts of the body served by the spinal cord below the placement of the damage on the spinal cord. In the majority of cases the damage results from physical trauma such as car accidents, gunshots, falls, or sports injuries, but it can also result from non-traumatic causes such as infection, insufficient blood flow, and tumors. Depending on how your body is affected on a daily basis, you may qualify for the Disability Tax Credit under a number of different sections. If your ability to walk - even short distances has been affected, you may qualify. If it takes longer than the average person to dress yourself due to pain or limited mobility, you may qualify.
