Spinal Cord Injuries
We take our bodies for granted… that is, until our bodies are broken
For the majority of us, it is impossible to fathom what life might be like without the use of our limbs. Loss of movement, bowel and bladder control never cross our minds. Pain from nerve damage, difficulty breathing, coughing and clearing mucus from the lungs, and changes in sexual sensitivity are foreign concepts, only thought about in the abstract. We are the lucky ones. For the estimated 273,000 people in the U.S. with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), taking a normally functioning body for granted is not an option.
Estimates published by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center state that 12,000 new cases of spinal cord injury occur in our country each year. The common causes of SCI include:
- Motor Vehicle (36.5%)
- Falls (28.5%)
- Violence (14.3%)
- Sports (9.2%)

Once we determine that you have a case, we will work diligently to get you the highest level of compensation we possibly can.
We understand the devastation spinal cord injuries can bring to an individual’s life.

Ask yourself this question… who does the adjuster work for? The adjuster works for the insurance company, they do not work for you.
