Accidents resulting in spinal cord injuries can be debilitating and life changing. When these types of injuries occur, it is important to have an experienced spinal cord injury lawyer on your side.
Spinal cord injuries are unexpected and can be severe. These kinds of injuries range from severe (permanent, total disability) to more moderate cases (mobility can be maintained or restored). Regardless of the severity of the damage to a spine, spinal cord injuries are very painful, life changing, and may persist for a lifetime.
According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (2015), approximately 12,500 acute spinal cord injuries occur each year, a relatively low number considering the US population. Most spinal cord injuries occur predominately in young people, with the most common age of initial spinal cord injury as 19 years. 50 percent of all injuries occur in individuals under 25 years of age. Regardless of the age of the person when they are injured, it is important to understand the progression and rehabilitation of these injuries.

We are familiar with treatments, rehabilitation techniques, and life care plans. We will put our knowledge and resources to work for you to help you get the compensation your need and deserve, so you can focus on getting well.
The science behind spinal cord injuries is constantly changing and highly technical. A spinal cord injury lawyer who handles these cases should have extensive experience and knowledge in the field.
