Meanwhile, the changes to physical and emotional well-being are almost immeasurable. Our attorneys understand your struggle.

  •         Loss of motor function
  •         Loss of bowel and bladder control
  •         Loss of sexual function
  •         Loss of sensation or altered sensation
  •         Trouble breathing and coughing
  •         Chronic pain or intense stinging sensations
  •         Spasms or exaggerated reflex actions

As if these physical difficulties were not enough, a spinal cord injury can impact virtually every aspect of your daily life. It is common to experience physical, emotional, social, and financial repercussions after suffering such a severe type of trauma.

You know firsthand that spinal cord injuries can leave a terrible mark on the lives of victims and their families. The last thing you should have to deal with is the stress of resolving a legal case. Our attorneys will handle as much of the process as possible so you can focus on what matters.
