Spinal Cord Injury

A victim of a spinal cord injury suffers greatly.  Specialized knowledge is required to understand the anatomy and medical issues of a spinal cord injury, along with the types of lifetime care, services and equipment required.  Our personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in these specialized cases.
