Compensation For Pain And Disability From A Neck Injury Or Back Injury
A neck or back injury can range from a relatively minor injury that will heal in a few weeks to a chronic condition that affects you for the rest of your life. For this reason, you should never accept an insurance company’s settlement offer for a spinal injury until you have a gauge on how the injury may affect your future.
At Britton Law, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, our personal injury lawyer represents people who have suffered back and neck injuries due to the negligence of other parties. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. We handle cases ranging from soft tissue damage, to fractures, to spinal cord damage resulting in paralysis.
Seeking Medical Care For Spinal Injuries
The most important thing to do following an injury in a fall, car wreck or other accident is to get proper medical care to help you get better.
Doctors typically treat neck and back injuries conservatively. Surgery is usually a last resort, after noninvasive treatment, such as physical therapy, does not result in improvement. It’s important to be patient and to follow your doctor’s treatment plan. If you discontinue treatment because you do not think it is working, the insurance company responsible for paying your injury claim will assume that you are no longer injured. More important, you may be left with chronic pain that persists for years.
We have experience with all types of spinal injuries, including:
- Fractured vertebrae
- Herniated disc or dislocated disc
- Lumbar strains (lower back injury)
- Severe whiplash (neck sprain)
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
