Birth Injury and Cerebral Palsy Cases, which are some of the most catastrophic cases that a lawyer can handle. I’ve also handled Brain Injury cases of adults and children, Spinal Cord Injury cases, Paralysis cases and Wrongful Death cases—that’s one of the things that hurts families the most is when a family member dies and they shouldn’t have.
