Neck injuries and back injuries caused by car crash accidents can range from whiplash to more serious back and neck injuries where the discs are compromised, requiring injections and sometimes even surgery. After a car crash accident some people can no longer walk or move normally. In the worst case they endure severe back or neck pain for the rest of their lives.
When a car crash occurs as a result of another driver’s reckless behavior, the driver needs to be held responsible. The other driver’s insurance company in theory should pay completely for your out of pocket medical expenses and injuries you sustain. Unfortunately this is not always the case.
The insurance company will not offer you “fair value” for the injuries you sustain, even though the accident was not your fault. They will more than likely make a “low ball” offer. It is important to hire us to assist you with your claim.
There are several types of neck injuries and back injuries you can sustain after a car crash. Some of the more common injuries are as follows:
The level, degree and manageability of pain vary for every person. Some people can have a herniated disc and experience very little pain at all. Some people can have whiplash (muscle strain) and it will cause excruciating pain. No matter what type of neck injury or back injury you sustained, these injuries can limit your ability to walk, sleep, sit or even stand.
Life as you know it will have changed forever. Because only you know your level of pain, it is crucial that you do not try to minimize it to your doctor. The treatment that your doctor will prescribe is often based on your physical complaints and yourlevel of pain.
