In car and other motor vehicle accidents, the back and the neck are vulnerable to severe injuries that can restrict your ability to perform daily activities, and in some cases, can be life-threatening. Even in cases where your injuries are not life-threatening, it is often difficult to come to grips with the pain, suffering and lasting effects of the injury.
At Cordisco & Saile LLC, we have helped clients with back and neck injuries get the compensation that they need to pay medical bills and other costs associated with their injuries. Our lawyers have won back and neck injury settlements for our clients that have enabled them to move on with their lives and get the medical treatment they need for the recovery process.
Injuries to the Neck, Back and Spinal Cord
When injuries are suffered to the back and neck areas, typically, they are related to the spine and spinal cord. The spinal cord is divided into three areas: the cervical spine (neck), the thoracic spine (middle of the back) and the lumber spine (lower end of the back). Most spinal cord injuries occur to the neck and to the lower back and can be very severe and painful.
These spinal cord injuries and other back injuries include:
- Disc herniations
- Disc bulges and tears
- Annular tears
- Muscle strains, sprains and spasms
- Quadriplegia and paraplegia
Treatment for neck and back injuries typically includes medication and surgery, including some cases where epidural injections are necessary. Many of our clients also need chiropractic care for years after the injury has occurred. Many disc and other injuries never fully improve and will need treatment for the rest of the victim’s life. You deserve full compensation for pain and suffering, medical bills, lost wages and other expenses associated with your injury.
