Legal counsel needed after car accident related spinal cord injury

One of the most devastating injuries that can result after a motor vehicle accident is damage to the spinal cord. While back injuries are serious they can often be rehabilitated and reversed. However, spinal cord damage is irreversible. Even after years of physical rehabilitation and therapy, a full return to pre-accident functionality is almost always unattainable. This is a life-changing diagnosis and requires experienced legal counsel.

Catastrophic injuries affect the victim and their loved ones

Catastrophic injuries, including spinal cord injuries, severe burns, amputations and traumatic brain injuries, can be devastating for the person who is stricken with the injury. The effects of the injury can also have a profound impact on the family members that are close to the victim. For some victims, the sole reason for seeking compensation is to try to make life easier for their loved ones.
