Back & Spinal Cord Injuries

Has an Accident Left You With a Spinal Cord Injury?

Consult a Bossier City Personal Injury Attorney Today!

In the scope of personal injury accidents, injuries to the back or spine are among the most problematic. Not only do spinal cord injuries present serious health threats, but they can also be difficult to diagnose; identifying liable parties in cases of this nature can also pose problems. This is why you need a personal injury lawyer on your side as you file a claim for compensation.

While a doctor's main concern is to treat your back or spinal cord injury, an attorney's main concern is to determine what caused the injury and who is liable. The doctor might have therapeutic reasons for identifying the cause, but they're going to get paid either way. In contrast, when you hire Joseph A. Gregorio, A Professional Law Firm, we won't get paid unless we're able to ascertain and prove that your injuries were caused by the negligence of another.
