Spinal cord injuries are among the most physically and financially devastating medical conditions a person may experience. And, to date, there are no permanent solutions for treatment. With approximately 276,000 individuals currently dealing with this debilitating condition throughout the United States, it’s a pressing research topic for medical professionals.
1.2 million lawyers are currently practicing in the United States. They vary greatly in skill, experience, commitment to their clients, and willingness to zealously litigate a personal injury case. Yet the practice of law, unlike fields such as medicine, comes with no residencies, no mandatory internships, and no state-required certifications. This means that anyone with a license to practice law can market themselves as a personal injury lawyer—even if they have no experience, no respect in the legal community, and no idea how best to manage your case.
