Brooklyn, NY Spinal Cord Injury Attorneys
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) between 12,000 and 20,000 people every year suffer a spinal cord injury. The most common cause of spinal cord injuries is a car accident, although spinal cord injuries are often caused by falls, violence or sports as well. Spinal cord injuries are devastating, and go beyond the loss of mobility. If you, a family member or other loved one has quadriplegia or paraplegia, it can be very difficult to come to grips with the limitations of your condition.
