Neck and spinal cord injuries can be caused by all kinds of accidents, from car or motorcycle accidents to diving accidents or falls. These injuries can range in severity from mild to catastrophic.  Where the spinal cord or neck injury is more severe, it can result in chronic pain disability even without a fracture or paralysis. Spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, whether partial or complete, are among the most severe injuries that people can suffer, and frequently have a devastating impact on a person’s ability to work and enjoy life. Severe injuries such as these always involve the entire family both in the rehabilitation effort and in the injured victim’s long term care and support.

Cases involving serious neck or spinal cord injuries require experienced lawyers who are familiar with the legal challenges, the medical and rehabilitation efforts, and the financial pressures facing the injured person and his or her family, both in the short and the long term.

At McNally Gervan we have helped hundreds of seriously injured accident victims and their families manage the complex legal, insurance and rehabilitation landscapes to help them and their families get the support they need and the compensation they deserve.  Below are a few of the resources that may assist families of people suffering from spinal cord injuries (no entity included in this directory has paid to be listed.)
