Complex spinal cord injury cases require special attention

The spinal cord is one of the most amazing, intricate and unknown areas of the human body. It serves as the central nervous system "hub" and it is responsible for housing most of the sensations associated within the human body. If the spinal cord suffers an injury, it could render it unable to do its job properly. This could leave a person, who is the victim of a personal injury accident, with a long term spinal cord injury.

Finding negligence after a truck accident

It has been days or weeks since the devastating truck accident that left you or loved ones with severe injuries. Now that your health is somewhat stabilized, you are wondering what comes next?

A full investigation will need to be conducted in order to determine the cause of the suspected drunk driving accident.

Police reports and negligence in drunk driving accidents

After an accident, an injured person may be asking how it happened. Some car accidents are directly caused by the fact that another driver was impaired behind the wheel.

In any such case, the police report on the accident will likely be a major part of the evidence for the injured person's lawsuit.
