Types of Injury Claims We Handle

Cases involving medical science can quickly become complex. These matters are often buried in documentation, paperwork and medical records. It is crucial that your attorney has the experience necessary to examine this information and develop the strongest case possible. Once you are healthy enough to do so, it is crucial that you speak with an attorney.

We can provide direction regarding a possible lawsuit based on your injuries, the accident and the doctor's prognosis:

  • Back injuries - The back is made up of a complex series of muscle groups stretching from the hips to the shoulders. Any serious impact or jarring motion can cause a muscle strain or muscle sprain that can limit range of motion.
  • Neck injuries - A common soft tissue neck injury is whiplash, also known as a cervical strain. These injuries can lead to difficulty sleeping, chronic headaches and loss of motion when turning the head.
  • Spinal cord injuries - Among the most serious injuries to the back are spinal cord injuries. Depending on where the injury occurs along the length of the spine, individuals might suffer numbness in the extremities (arms and legs), tingling, loss of range of motion or even paralysis.
  • Spinal column injuries - The rings of bone that protect the spinal cord are known as vertebrae. Trauma to these vertebrae can lead to a bulging disk, compression fractures, or herniated or ruptured disks. These types of injuries can create pain from the nerves located throughout the vertebrae.
  • Nerve pain - Trauma to the back can often cause numbness and tingling throughout other extremities, which is known as radiculopathy. This is pain that radiates from the nerves and travels throughout the arms, hands, legs, and feet.
