Back and Neck Injuries

Back and neck injuries are often caused by car accidents, during a slip and fall accident at work, and sports injuries. If the back and neck injury occurs outside of work and is the result of someone else's negligence or on someone else's property, the injured person may be entitled to file a personal injury claim to a neck or back injury settlement.

The back and neck can sustain a number of injuries, including muscle strains, bone fractures, ligament tears, and nerve damage. Some common back and neck injuries include:
  • Compression fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Slipped or herniated discs
  • Sciatica
Most back/neck injuries involve injuries to the spine. Whiplash, which is due to a traumatic event that causes the head to move suddenly ("whip") in one direction and then recoil in the other direction, often occurs as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Damage can affect ligaments, discs, and joints and almost always, the muscles and ligaments have been strained and may be inflamed, painful, and tender. Whiplash victims can also suffer headaches, pain in the shoulders, between the shoulder blades, or in one or both arms. Dizziness occurs in one-quarter to one-half of people with whiplash injury, possibly due to an inner ear injury. As well, fatigue, problems with vision, ringing in the ears, heaviness in the arms, and low back pain are associated with whiplash.

neck injuryMost people recover from whiplash within six months or so, but some victims—usually older people or people who had a history of neck pain or back problems before the accident—never fully recover.

A back or neck injury, from whiplash to spinal cord injury, can cause pain and suffering and significant life changes, including economic loss. In addition to medical expenses, you may be unable to work. A neck and back injury attorney can ensure that your wage losses are compensable under your accident/injury claim with an insurance company.

Sometimes insurance companies, and even doctors or therapists hired by your Workers' Compensation insurance company may attempt to discredit or downplay your injury; it is important that a personal injury lawyer helps you deal with these insurance companies.

Most importantly, an experienced back and neck injury attorney will help maximum pain and suffering recovery with your neck and back injury compensation claim: Sometimes it takes years to recover from an accident. An attorney will take into consideration all future medical expenses, wage loss and pain and suffering that must be fully paid by the insurance company and/or parties responsible for your injuries in your back injury settlement or neck injury settlement.

I went to work as I had done everyday. I was told to put a 30 foot bundle of rebar on a trailer when the crane jammed as it had so many times before. In order to get the crane unjammed it would have to be run down to the back of the bay and slammed into the back of the bay to fix it. Well I went to do that when the bundle slipped pulling me to the ground. Which caused a low back injury. I had 5 low back surgeries. Which to this day the pain has bothered me for more than 25 years.

I recently have found out that my L4 vertebrae is broke as, my L5 is broke in different spots and the discussion is bad in between. I Had An Accident At Work. I ran over a very rough cattle guard which caused my air ride seat in my semi to bottom out on the metal bracket which then I felt something pop in my back. For a while I could feel my legs nor move my left leg until I was taken to the er and was there for about 4 hrs and the er doc told me nothing was broke but 2 days later I received a call from the same doc telling me that him and an orthopedic spine doc looked over the cray and found the L4 broke And my spine shifted forward. Got a cat scan done and also found small breaks in my L5 vertebrae and led to an mi and bone scan still awaiting results. 4 days after the incident at work I was let go for other reasons but before the Incident I was being told I was doing I great job and all smiles with my company and had no intention on letting me go. Now I'm out of work waiting on workers comp and possibly from the docs point of view with my back conditions I won't be able to work another day in my life . I can't even pick up my little girls and hold them which breaks my heart into pieces
