Nearly 12 million visits are made to hospitals each year because of spinal problems. Many of these injuries are the result of a traumatic injury like automobile accidents; falls; gunshots; or abuse. The CDC reports that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of spinal cord injury for persons under age 65. For individuals 65 and older, falls are the most common cause.

Insurance adjusters and insurance company lawyers often will attempt to characterize a victim’s spinal injury as a “pre-existing injury or condition” or that the injury was not caused by another’s negligence. The attorneys have the experience necessary to prove that a victim’s spinal injury was indeed related to a traumatic event caused by another’s negligence. We do this by thoroughly investigating the circumstances of an accident, and by actively communicating with your physicians, often taking physician’s depositions to prove the cause of our client’s injuries.
