Legal Support for Spinal Cord Injury Patients
Many people living with a spinal cord injury are doing so due to the negligence
or recklessness of another party.
Car accidents, for example, are a leading cause of serious spinal damage and paralysis.
When their injury is caused by a third party, they should be able to receive
compensation from those who are liable. Sometimes a design or manufacturing
defect in the vehicle also contributed to cause the injury – make
sure these issues are fully investigated for you.
Strong-Garner-Bauer P.C. offers comprehensive and compassionate legal counsel
to people who need to file a personal injury claim after suffering a spinal
cord injury. We have more than 40 years of total experience focused on
helping those in need receive the compensation they deserve so they can
