Our San Diego firm’s spinal cord injury attorneys do not think that living with paralysis or even recovering from it is an easy thing to do. That being said, it is a good sign that Robitaille was able to continue outpatient therapy from the comfort of his home.
On February 3, 2010, Robitaille was in a car accident and injured his cervical spine. A week after the auto accident, Robitaille underwent surgery to stabilize his vertebral compression injury at Millard Fillmore Gates Circle Hospital at Gates Circle. Experts are in the Buffalo area are taking it day-by-day, week-by-week to see how Robitaille is coming along in his rehabilitation and therapy. They are hopeful that he’ll be able to return to work broadcasting games for the Buffalo Sabres.
