Birmingham Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
According to the National Spinal Cord Statistical Center, approximately 17,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury each year in the U.S. About 282,000 people in the U.S. are currently living with a spinal cord injury. Vehicle crashes are the leading cause of spinal cord injury, followed by falls, acts of violence (mostly gunshot wounds) and sports or recreational activities.
Statistics alone cannot describe the physical, emotional, social and financial damages suffered by people with spinal cord injuries. No amount of money can adequately compensate them for their significant losses. If you sustained a spinal cord injury because someone else or a company was negligent, your future depends upon the law firm you choose to represent you in a spinal cord injury case.
