Brain And Spinal Cord Injuries
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control:
- 1.5 million Americans each year sustain a brain injury
- Of those, 50,000 die and over 2.5 million are treated in hospitals
- Many of these victims are children, who are at higher risk
- Approximately 500,000 children suffer serious brain injuries as a result of accidents each year
Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries are often permanent, always life altering, and undoubtedly have major affects on the lives of the victims as well as their families. These types of injuries can occur through the fault of another and can occur through surgical error, an automobile or motorcycle accident, construction site accidents, defective products or a machinery malfunction.
Brain and spinal cord injury victims, as well as their families, need a lawyer who understands the medical, physical, economic and psychological impacts of these traumatic injuries. Attorney Shannon J. Sagan has the skills and experience necessary to fight for full and fair compensation for those who have sustained such injuries to cover medical expenses, rehabilitation cost, lost wages, supplies and equipment, and compensation for pain and suffering.
