Back and neck injuries most commonly occur in the workplace and the injured person has the option to file for a back injury claim as workers compensation and/or a back injury compensation claim. Whether your injury happened at work, or as the result of another accident, a back injury lawyer at The Doan Law Firm will able to help you reach the settlement you deserve.

Back and Neck Injuries

The most common causes of back and neck injuries are sports injuries, car accidents and an accident at work, most commonly a slip and fall. If your back and neck injury has occurred outside of the workplace as the result of negligence of another or their property, you have rights and could be entitled to either a back and neck injury settlement or a personal injury lawsuit.

There are a large number of injuries that the back and neck can sustain, including:

  • Bone Fractures
  • Nerve Damage
  • Ligament Tears
  • Muscle Strains

Some of the most common types of back and neck injuries will include:

  • Sciatica
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Herniated or Slipped Discs
  • Compression Fractures
  • Whiplash

The majority of back and neck injuries will involve the spine. Whiplash occurs most often as the result of a motor vehicle collision and is a traumatic event which will cause the head to whip (suddenly move) in one direction and then recoil into another direction. The damage can be extensive and can affect the joints, ligaments and discs. Furthermore, almost always the ligaments and muscles will be strained and often will be tender, inflamed and painful.

Victims that have suffered from whiplash will most often suffer from pain between the shoulder blades and the shoulders; suffer from headaches, pain in one or both of their arms as well. In ¼ or ½ of all whiplash cases, dizziness will occur and is most often the result of an inner ear injury.

Additional problems often associated with whiplash are:

  • Vision Problems
  • Arm Heaviness
  • Fatigue
  • Lower Back Pain
  • Ringing In the Ears

The majority of people will recover from whiplash in approximately six months, however, there are a number of victims (usually older or people with a history of back or neck problems prior to the accident) that will never recover fully.

From spinal cord injuries to whiplash, back and neck injuries can cause significant pain and suffering and are often life changing events, including but definitely not limited to economic loss. In addition to all of your medical bills, it’s likely you’ll be unable to work for a period of time. Your lawyer will be able to help ensure that you’re medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering are accounted for in your personal injury claim.

Often, insurance companies, therapists, doctors and others hired by the insurance company will attempt to downplay or discredit your injury and its significance. It’s essential that you have a qualified and specialized lawyer in back and neck injury law that can help you deal with the insurance companies and other lawyers. At The Doan Law Firm back and neck injuries are cases we have extensive experience in and our lawyers can lead you professionally and thoroughly through the entire process from the initial claim to settlement or verdict.

The most important part about hiring a lawyer that’s experienced and specializes in back and neck injuries is your pain and suffering damage recovery compensation will be maximized to the fullest possible. You don’t want just a personal injury lawyer. While they’re good and will be able to do a good job representing you, they practice in many areas of personal injury law; you need and deserve someone that specifically works day in and day out with these types of claims.
