Always Nice to Report a Positive SCI-Linked Outcome

Spinal cord injuries are often catastrophic and life-changing, and for obvious reasons.

We note why that is true on our personal injury website at Tabor Law Firm in Indianapolis.

For starters, we duly point out that the spinal cord is "the central hub" for the body's nervous system. When it is injured, the system often has a hard time communicating with brain impulses that control body movements.

And here's something, too, of course: When the spinal cord is badly injured (as it frequently is in a spine-related injury frequently following high-impact accidents), extremely serious outcomes can result.

In some cases, those include partial or even total paralysis.

We pass along in today's post a recent story about a former college football player who was paralyzed in a game back in 2010. Eric LeGrand is now 27.

Despite the obstacles he faces, LeGrand is known and respected as an optimistic fighter who never gives up, and keeps high hopes for the future. LeGrand recently reached the impressive milestone of raising $1 million through his Team LeGrand charity. All the money is targeted for spinal cord injury research efforts made through the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

That kind of news is always good to hear, as are stories that spotlight advances made in SCI treatments and therapies.

Good news is tempered by reality, though, and it should never be forgotten that many SCI victims need ongoing assistance to help them with life-long challenges.

Our law firm always stands ready to assist individuals and families affected by a SCI, working tirelessly and compassionately on behalf of our clients who have suffered spinal cord injuries because of another party's negligent behavior.

And we note on our website that, in doing so, we always take a "big picture" approach in the work we do, taking into account every way this devestating injury can impact both the victim and their family's lives.

That means strong efforts to obtain a maximum legal recovery for every client we are privileged to assist. We can help you when you need it the most. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.
