Spinal cord injury disconnects the brain from the body below the injury site. The level of injury is predictive of the parts of your body that will be affected. Success in recovery depends on management of complications. See article on Your Spinal Cord Injury: Hope and Recovery.
Help for recovery from spinal cord injury can be obtained with sufficient resources and a comprehensive rehabilitation plan. There are always good reasons for hope. Courage, determination and hard work promote rehabilitation to a greater extent than ever before envisioned. You are entitled to the best care and compensation.
The most damaging weapon of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the improvised explosive device (IED), is leaving a signature wound on our heroic troops: traumatic brain injury (TBI). Between 10 and 20% of our returning soldiers might have suffered a TBI without really being aware of it. Deficits may include cognitive, emotional and physical limitations, a change in personality, and the inability to care for themselves or their loved ones. The U.S. Congress is considering legislation to provide services available in the civilian arena to wounded warriors. Maximizing recovery of our returning troops from traumatic brain injury should be a priority for us all. Without proper treatment of TBI, because of the changing nature of warfare from that period to this, our returning troops may some day be homeless in numbers that dwarf our Country's experience from the war in Vietnam.
Wrongful death is profoundly about family life. The presentation of your case requires deep and intimate knowledge of your family. How will each day in your life be different? The jury must be convinced of the profound loss you have suffered in order to reach a fair verdict.
