The spinal cord serves two extremely important functions. The vertebrae that make up the spine, or backbone, connect the body together.
The bundle of nerves that travels down the spine carries all signals from the brain to the rest of the body.
Spinal cord injuries can result from an accident, motor vehicle crash, medical malpractice, or undiagnosed medical condition.
Spinal cord injuries can cause a host of temporary and permanent injuries including paralysis or even death.
When that spinal cord injury results or is made worse due to the negligence of another, a personal injury attorney in Jefferson County, Alabama may be able to help the victim seek justice in state or federal court.
The AAJ is committed to promoting a fair and effective civil justice system while supporting the work of attorneys representing plaintiffs.
