Our Birmingham Injury Lawyers Can Fight for Your Compensation
The primary basis for most spinal cord injury cases is derived from negligence.

Our firm understands how devastating these serious injuries can be, resulting in severe disability, emotional strife, and serious financial debt. Whether you’re faced with ongoing medical treatment and loss of employment, we are dedicated to protecting your rights until you are rightfully compensated.
You may be entitled to receive compensation for losses such as:
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Past medical expenses
