The Swope, Rodante P.A. Award for Service to the Catastrophic Injury Community

Swope, Rodante P.A. Award for Service to the Catastrophic Injury Community

For over 35 years Swope, Rodante, P.A.’s team of personal injury attorneys have fought for justice on behalf of our clients, many of whom are victims of spinal cord injuries and/or traumatic brain injuries. From the moment an injury occurs people with catastrophic injuries require help from a multitude of individuals and organizations. While for some providing this help is part of their job, they go above and beyond those duties making a big difference in the lives of not only the injured person but also their families. For others providing assistance is something they do because they are  passionate about helping others and the return they get is the satisfaction of knowing they made a difference. For Swope, Rodante P.A. the individuals who rise up providing help and support to the victims of catastrophic injuries and their families are the extraordinary hero’s we want to thank.

If you know someone who gives back to the catastrophic injury community and would like to nominate them for this award we would like to hear from you. Please read about the details of the Swope, Rodante P.A. Award for Service to the Catastrophic Injury Community below.
