Fighting for paralyzed and mobility-impaired accident victims
The spine is a complex structure that can be very sensitive to damage and very difficult to repair should damage occur. Not only does it contain dozens of individual discs and vertebrae, but it also houses the most important neural pathway in the entire human body - the spinal cord. For these reasons, even minor damage to this crucial structure can have a substantial and long-term effect on your quality of life. Serious damage can have a catastrophic effect, including paralysis or other lifelong mobility and vocational limitations.
