Personal Injury Lawyer
A catastrophic personal injury can be life altering. Enormous expenses can result, and the
effects can last many years. Victims require extensive medical treatment, repeated surgeries,
medications and therapies.
At Ragland Law Firm, we are committed to seeking justice for victims of serious personal
injury, such as burns, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and fractures.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Also known as �TBI�, a traumatic brain injury results from the penetration of the skull or
a severe blow to the head, causing impairment of the brain�s ability to function. A brain injury
can manifest itself in memory loss, confusion, impaired motor skills, mood swings and coma.
Many victims never fully recover from a brain injury. In some cases, extensive physical
therapy and rehabilitation are required. Over the last twenty years, Ragland Law Firm has
represented many victims of traumatic brain injury.
Severe burns can cause permanent scaring and disfigurement. If the deeper layers of the
skin are damaged, the immune system and other body functions can also be effected.
According to the American Burn Association, over 1 million people sustain burn injuries
in the United States each year. The victims of these injuries suffer severe mental anguish and
excruciating pain. As with other serious personal injuries, Ragland Law Firm is experienced in
obtaining fair compensation for victims of serious burn injuries.
Spinal Cord Injury
The spinal cord is a collection of nerves that connects all of the body�s muscles and
nerves to the brain. A spinal cord injury can result in severe and permanent disability, including
paralysis of the arms and legs (quadriplegia) or paraplegia (paralysis of the lower body). Victims
can also experience loss of bladder and bowel control, breathing problems, and muscle spasms.
Fewer than 1% of spinal cord injury victims recover completely.
Most victims of spinal cord injury require long term medical care and rehabilitation. The
medical bills can easily exceed 1 million dollars. Only an experienced personal injury specialist
should be retained to work on this type of difficult injury case. If you or a loved one has
suffered a spinal cord injury, Ragland Law Firm has the necessary experience and resources to
handle the challenges of a spinal cord injury case.
Contact a personal injury specialist
A money recovery, regardless of amount, cannot undo the tremendous emotional and
physical damage resulting from serious personal injury. However, the recovery can lessen the
financial hardships and therefore greatly reduce those stresses on the victim, family and other
support givers. The victim can experience greater comforts afforded by having the money
necessary to obtain needed medications and therapies. If you have been a victim of a serious
personal injury, contact Ragland Law Firm to discuss the details of your case.
