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.
