Back & Neck Injuries Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Personal injury law encompasses many different accidents and injuries, but injuries to the neck and back are some of the most common cases that a personal injury attorney will see. Because injuries to the neck or back can significantly decrease a victim’s quality of life, you will want to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as you can.

Neck and back injuries can happen for a number of different reasons. From car accidents to slip and fall accidents, an injury to the neck or back can happen just about anywhere. But if an accident occurs that is not your fault but leaves you injured, you could find yourself with high medical bills you can’t afford to pay and an inability to return to work.

With the help of a personal injury attorney, you can sue for compensation to help you through the rest of your life. But in order to receive compensation that you deserve, you need to know if you have a real case on your hands.

If you have a neck or back injury and you’re wondering if you have a case worth following through with, this guide can help you out.

About Neck and Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries can happen from a variety of accidents and may appear in various levels of intensity. Whether you tripped and fell in a public place and slipped a disc or you became paralyzed after a serious car accident, neck and back injuries can mean serious business. However, you may have a personal injury case no matter how small or how severe your neck and back pain are.

One of the most common ways your neck or back may be injured is if your vehicle is rear-ended by another vehicle. Neck injuries may be the cause of whiplash, damage to the soft tissue, herniated discs, fractures to the neck, or cervical dislocations. Back injuries are also common, frequently resulting from dislocation, compression fractures, burst fractures, soft tissue injuries, or injuries to the spinal cord.

However, any injury to the neck or back does not constitute a personal injury case. If you hope to take a guilty party to court to receive compensation for your damages and injuries, you must be able to prove that the individual is completely at fault.

Proving a Neck and Back Personal Injury Case

When determining whether or not you have a personal injury case worth taking to court, the details of the accident are more important than the details of the injury. Because you need to be able to prove that the accident was caused because of the fault of another individual, you will need sufficient evidence to prove blame.

In order to prove negligence and secure compensation for a personal injury case, you need to address four key elements. Those elements include duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

  • Duty of Care: When determining whether or not you have a personal injury case, you must first determine that there is a duty of care. This duty of care means that the individual who caused the accident had an obligation to protect other individuals from getting injured.For example, when a driver gets behind the wheel of their vehicle, they have a responsibility to drive safely. Store owners or landlords have a responsibility to protect visitors on their land. Under duty of care, these individuals must take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of those around them.
  • Breach of Duty: After you have determined that the individual had a duty to care for you, you must prove that they did not act within reasonable means to protect you or those around you. If the individual has created a dangerous atmosphere or acted dangerously, they would have breached their duty of care.Driving recklessly is one way the duty of care would be breached. Knowingly ignoring spills or cords is another way that duty of care was breached.
  • Causation: After establishing that the individual has breached a duty of care toward you, you must be able to prove that their actions led to your injuries. In order to have personal injury case, you need to show that the individual’s actions directly led to your injuries.It is important to note that a breach of duty does not necessary lead to causation. If the actions of the individual did not contribute to your accident, it does not matter if they acted negligent.
  • Damages: The final thing you must show in order to have a personal injury case is damages. Damages can include injuries to your body, harm to your property, or even emotional injuries.Your damages will help you determine your settlement if you win the personal injury case.

Getting Compensation for Your Neck and Back Injury

If you have a strong personal injury case on your hands, you will be able to receive compensation for your neck and back injury. With this compensation, you can receive money to help pay your medical bills, receive treatment in the future, and make necessary changes to maintain your quality of life. However, if you want to get the compensation you deserve, you will probably need the help of a personal injury attorney.

When looking to get compensation, you may be met with a settlement amount that you believe will cover your bills and needs. However, the insurance provider of the other individual is looking to pay you as little as possible. Because they are a business and will only want to pay enough to end the case, you may find that the amount they offer you isn’t really the amount that you need.

With the help of a personal injury attorney, you can guarantee that you’re getting the right settlement for you and your needs. Because a personal injury attorney will be able to see what expenses and treatments you may need in the future, you can rest assured knowing you’re getting the most money possible from your personal injury attorney settlement.

If you’ve sustained an injury to your neck or back because of another individual’s negligent actions, don’t suffer the consequences without a legal fight for the compensation that is owed to you. With the help of a personal injury attorney, you can receive the full compensation you deserve to cover your medical bills, your lost wages, and any potential future expenses that you may have because of your injury.
