Know what points to address in a spinal cord injury claim

In a recent blog post, we discussed how a man recently walked for the first time following a spinal cord injury. These types of stories are rare, but they are a source of hope.

Breakthrough spinal cord treatment helps man walk

The Mayo Clinic announced that it has achieved great strides in spinal cord treatment.
