Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys


Over one million people in the United States sustain brain injuries each year. The effects of these injuries can be long-lasting and sometimes negatively affect victims for the rest of their lives.

Symptoms of brain injuries can include:

  • Confusion and exhaustion
  • Dizziness and lightheadedness
  • Severe headaches
  • Double or blurred vision
  • Memory loss
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Lack of coordination
  • Slurred speech

Spinal cord injuries can leave victims permanently disabled.

In the United States, between 250,000 and 400,000 people are living with serious spinal cord injuries. Every year, about 11,000 people sustain spinal cord injuries. Most of these occur in auto and sports accidents, falls, and industrial accidents.

Symptoms of spinal cord injuries can include, but are not limited to:

  • Permanent loss of sensation
  • Loss of movement (paralysis)
  • Loss of control over bodily functions

Injuries to the brain and spinal cord usually have lifelong repercussions. Caring for someone who has sustained severe damage to the brain or spinal cord often falls on the immediate family members, causing a victim’s loved ones to sacrifice their personal lives and careers. A brain or spinal cord injury can impact an entire family and often leaves them without the necessary income to meet day-to-day needs.

Many brain and spinal cord injuries could have been avoided if the at-fault party had acted with more care. If that negligence is the reason you or a loved one was injured, you are entitled to compensation for your losses.
