SEVERE INJURIES

Severe Injuries cover a broad spectrum of legal issues when one has been physically or emotionally injured, and/or personal property has been damaged. In legal circles, severe injuries and personal injury can also be known as “tort” law, the French word for “wrong.”

Personal injury or “tort” law is the body of law that allows one to be compensated in the event that someone’s carelessness, recklessness or intentional misconduct injures or damages you or your personal belongings.

BIRTH INJURIES
Birth injury is sustained during the birthing process and can result in nerve damage, bone breaks, or brain injury.

No matter how the permanent injury happened, the diagnosis is scary and unsettling for the victim’s entire family and loved ones.
SPINAL CORD INJURIES

Kidneys are vital organs that filter blood in the body.  When injured, there are serious consequences, even death.
