Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer
A spinal cord injury is a devastating, life-altering injury. Whether caused by an auto accident, a truck accident or work related accident, a spinal cord injury can limit a person’s ability to perform tasks once taken for granted such as walking, standing, sitting up, moving one’s arms, and control over other bodily functions.

Costs of Spinal Cord Injuries
While there have been great advances in treating spinal cord injuries in recent years, the cost of this medical care can be very expensive even with health insurance. However, even the best medical care often cannot restore an injured person’s ability to walk or to have a fully functional body. These lasting injuries create significant financial burdens for those suffering a spinal cord injury, including the cost for lifetime medical care, modifications to the home and vehicle as well as a potential loss of future salary and wages.
A person suffering from a spinal cord injury caused by the negligence of another person or company shouldn’t have to bear the financial burden alone.

Accidents cause thousands of spinal cord injuries across the United States each year. Those injured may need costly adaptive equipment, vocational retraining, or full-time professional care.

- Workplace Accidents in industrial facilities, warehouses, construction sites, oil and gas well sites, offshore in a maritime setting, and elsewhere
