PA Personal Injury Attorney Seeking Compensation for Victims of Spinal Cord Injuries in Allegheny County, Butler County, Westmoreland County, and Throughout Western Pennsylvania

According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center, there are approximately 17,000 new spinal cord injuries every year. The leading cause of spinal cord injury is from vehicle crashes, followed by falls and then acts of violence (gunshot wounds). These injuries have a profound effect on an individual’s quality of life, preventing them from participating in various activities and, at times from being able to care for themselves as well as affecting their ability to work. Contact us today to speak with a skilled catastrophic injury attorney.

Individuals who suffer from spinal cord injuries can also experience the following health issues:

  • Loss of bladder/bowel control
  • Loss of sensation
  • Paralysis
  • Skin breakdown or skin ulcerations
