Jonathan Sigworth: Spinal Cord Injury Awareness

Jonathan Sigworth, a former Wesleyan student and now a junior at Dartmouth College, fell from a 70 ft. cliff in northern India in 2006 and became a quadriplegic.  Three years later, to encourage his Indian peers, Jonathan made this short film telling his story and the stories of four of his quadriplegic friends.  More than Walking is a film about tragedies and opportunities, wheelchair rugby and new beginnings; it shows that out of the nightmare of an accident can come a gift of life.

Come hear Jonathan speak about his family’s current efforts towards spinal cord injury awareness in India and view his 20 minute documentary “More Than Walking” (Best Undergraduate Documentary,  Ivy Film Festival, 2010)

Refreshments will be served.

Date:   Tuesday, March 22nd
Time:   4:30 PM- 6:00 PM

    If you have suffered a spinal cord injury, for example due to a road collision, a violent assault, a workplace accident or an incident during a sporting or recreational activity, you will be going through a period of enormous adjustment. For this, you are entitled to every opportunity to improve your quality of life as best you can in the circumstances and spinal injury claim lawyers will help you to achieve that.

  2. Taxi Injury Compensation Claim

    We assist the personal injury solicitor who will be responsible for contracting the other side, assessing how much money the claimant might receive at court and entering into negotiations on the behalf of the victim. It is easy for the victim and all situations are handled by the solicitor. The solicitor will also be responsible for gathering evidence to show that the accident was the fault of the defendant and evidence to show how much the defendant should pay to compensate the victim of the accident.
