When instances of medical malpractice happen, they can unfortunately result
in serious spinal cord injuries, some of which lead to paralysis and wrongful
death. The spine protects the spinal cord, a column of nerves along the
middle of your back and neck, which sends vital motor and sensory information
between the brain and nerves of the body. When the spinal cord is damaged,
signals can no longer travel between the impacted nerves and the brain
and may result in paraplegia, quadriplegia and other serious, irreparable harm.
At Rheingold, Giuffra, Ruffo & Plotkin LLP, we have handled
medical malpractice cases for almost four decades, including cases that
have resulted in spinal cord injuries. If you or a loved one was injured
