Work with a spinal cord attorney after your back injury

Back and spinal cord injuries complicate the lives of those who suffer from them in a wide variety of ways, and many people with these ailments must stay on bed rest and miss significant work time. When you suffer a back injury, the dynamic lawyers of Salter, Healy, Bassett & Rivera fight on your behalf by leveraging our 30 combined years of trial law experience to obtain compensation for you. We give you personal attention throughout your entire case, thoroughly researching your medical history so the defense can’t claim that you are lying about your injury.

Spinal cord injuries can have painful consequences

Back and spinal cord injuries can result from a wide variety of causes, the most common of which include car accidents, hard falls, motorcycle accidentstruck accidents, hernias, fractures and muscle tears. Many back injuries become chronic problems, meaning that the victim may require lifelong medical and therapeutic care. Victims often re-injure their backs, making the pain even worse.
