Back & Spine Injuries
Waterbury Catastrophic Injury Attorney
Motor vehicle accidents,
construction accidents, sports injuries, and even
medical negligence have the potential to result in life-altering back and spine injuries.
An injury to the spinal cord places a tremendous burden on a victim and
their families, leaving them to deal with massive medical expenses, an
inability to work, and a drastic change in quality of life. In the worst
cases, a spinal cord injury can result in paralysis and require a lifetime
of constant, specialized care. These financial, physical, and emotional
burdens can add up to a future filled with uncertainty.
If you or a loved one has suffered a back or spinal cord injury caused
by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to substantial
compensation. You should immediately contact an experienced Waterbury
personal injury lawyer at Brennan Law Firm, LLC. With the long-term costs of
catastrophic injuries, it is critical to work with a seasoned attorney who knows what it takes
to maximize compensation and ensure that your future needs are met.

funeral and burial costs, pain and suffering prior to death, loss of companionship
and support, and more.
