Doctors who treat patients with neck and back injuries often see those patients over quite a long period of time. These types of injuries can be difficult to treat, and often develop into chronic pain cases. Surgery may be recommended. A person may be ordered to rest for weeks or months before returning to ordinary activities. After a car accident that causes a back or neck injury, patients often do not feel the full extent of the injury until at least 72 hours afterward. This is a compelling reason to consult with a knowledgeable, experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Philadelphia Injury Lawyers is available to evaluate back and neck injury cases.
What you say and do in the minutes, hours and days after a car accident or any accident can have a big impact on the outcome of a personal injury claim or lawsuit. For this reason, we at the Philadelphia Injury Lawyers remind our clients:
- To get prompt medical attention after a back or neck injury
- To follow doctors’ orders
- Not to engage in lengthy discussions with insurance claims adjusters or law enforcement investigators without legal counsel
- Not to sign any waiver or accept a check for compensation after an accident before discussing an accident and injuries with an attorney
When we represent a back or neck injury sufferer after an accident, we can represent those clients with their best interests in mind. Let us explain how we can advocate on your behalf after you have suffered a neck or back injury with consequences such as:
- Muscle spasms
- Muscle strains
- Soft-tissue inflammation and pain
- A ruptured or herniated disk (sometimes spelled disc)
- A cracked neck bone (cervical bone)
- A fracture or dislocation of the spine, whether at the neck or lower, on the back
- A fractured vertebra
Even if your back or neck injury is not a catastrophic spinal cord injury, you may face expensive treatment. You may miss work. You may end up with chronic pain. You deserve to know your rights. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation from any and all relevant sources, such as a driver whose traffic violation put you in harm’s way or a property owner who did not repair a defective stair railing along a stairway where you fell.
Serving Philadelphia and surrounding areas, the Philadelphia Injury Lawyers offers no-obligation, free initial consultations regarding soft-tissue injuries as well as catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord injuries.
