A Spinal Cord Injury Attorney Brings Optimal Success
This serious type of injury involves damage to the spinal cord resulting in the loss of motor function including mobility of the arms, legs or a loss feeling in those extremities.
Too often, spinal cord injuries (SCI) are accompanied by other major health issues including traumatic brain damage, neck injuries, broken legs, and facial fractures. Worse yet, about 30% of persons with SCI are re-hospitalized for an average of 22 days during the years following injury.1
