When you suffer a back or spinal cord injury, your whole life can come to a standstill. You may be left unable to lift anything or even stand for more than a few minutes. This can severely limit your ability to work and can even force you to stop doing things that bring joy and meaning to your life.
In addition to the impact a back or spinal cord injury has on your life, these types of injuries also require extensive medical treatment, including expensive physical therapy or rehabilitation. Your worry about being able to pay your bills is typically only matched by the frustration you may feel because of pushback from the insurance company.
You may be searching for help and an experienced personal injury attorney is where you will find it.
