Spinal Cord & Back Injuries – Building a Strong Claim
When a spinal cord injury occurs, it is devastating and changes the person’s life forever. This is because this type of injury generally has a sudden onset and is irreversible. This has a profound effect, not just on the person, but on their entire family.
Who will pay for the immediate medical care? What about the person’s lost wages? Will they need changes to their home or extra equipment to manage their new life? These issues can lead to many physical, psychological and obviously, financial hardships as they adapt to leading a fulfilled and productive life with a spinal cord injury.
Dr. Sawyer has been personally touched by spinal cord injury as his mother became a paraplegic quite late in life. With that experience, he is committed to supporting victims of spinal cord and back injuries.
