Advice About Spinal Cord Injury Claims
The consequences of a back or neck injury — especially a spinal cord injury — can be very serious. The outcome of a catastrophic injury to the neck, back, or spine can be paralysis, paraplegia, or quadriplegia. These injuries severely limit the injured person’s work and daily living activities.
Herniated disks, spinal cord contusions, and other injuries causing nerve damage and severe pain can also be life-changing. Severe pain can make life miserable, affecting your ability to sleep, work, and find joy.
