If you have suffered from a serious back and neck injury, you may face a long road to recovery. Medical treatment, physical therapy and even surgery are sometimes necessary, but how will you afford it?
When someone else is at fault for your injury, you have the legal right to hold the individual accountable and to recover compensation for the personal injury.

Our attorneys have extensive experience dealing with insurance companies, filing claims, negotiating settlements and taking cases to trial if necessary. We can do what is required to protect your rights and recover personal injury compensation and to help you deal with the costly medical expenses related to your injury.
Your neck and back contain the network of muscles, bones and nerves that send out signals to other bodily systems. Severe impact from a fall, car accident or work injury can damage your neck and spine, and often such injuries turn even simple tasks into difficult endeavors.
Common neck and back injuries include:
Whiplash is the most common type of injury experienced in car accidents and especially in rear end collisions. With whiplash, you may not experience any pain until several days after the accident. The resulting neck injury can be minor or it can be extensive. Getting immediate medical treatment is important because you can sometimes avoid having a minor injury turn into a chronic condition.
In addition, if someone else’s negligence caused your injury, it makes your case much easier to prove when a medical professional documents the injury, takes x-rays and begins treatment.
When dealing with the responsible individual’s insurance company, or making major medical decisions, it is wise to consult with an experienced lawyer as soon as possible. We can offer legal advice on the best way to proceed so that your personal injury expenses get covered.
