We handle all types of back injury cases.


A back injury case can be defined as any injury that is caused by the spine. The most common types of spine injuries include:

  • Herniated discs in the lower back (usually herniated discs are located in L4-L5 and L5-S1)

  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)

  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD) or spondylosis, which is a condition that causes pain and stiffness in the neck and shoulders.

  • Spine fractures; this includes both compression fractures and burst fractures, which occur when a vertebrae breaks due to trauma.

We are familiar with all neck injuries, including disc herniations and disc bulges.


A disc herniation is a condition that occurs when the inner gelatinous core of a disc pushes outward through the tough outer wall. This can cause severe pain, weakness and numbness in the arms or legs.


Disc bulges are very similar to herniated discs, except they do not go all the way through the outer layer of your vertebrae. Instead, they form an area of protrusion from inside your spinal cord where it has been pushed by pressure on an adjacent vertebrae. In some cases, you may be able to feel this bulge when you press on it with your finger.


The Spine


To make an informed decision about your case, you need to understand the anatomy of the spine. The human vertebral column consists of 33 bones (vertebrae). These bones are stacked on top of each other and held together by ligaments and intervertebral discs. Each vertebra has a large spine with a hole through which nerves pass through to connect muscles in the body with the brain. Within this hole is another section called an intervertebral disc that connects two adjacent vertebrae together like glue between two pieces of wood.


Discs come in different shapes, sizes and compositions depending on where they are located within your spine; some discs provide shock absorption while others act as stabilizers for movement throughout your day-to-day activities (i.e., bending over). Discs can also sustain damage due to age or injury – this can result in pain but also cause instability along your spinal cord or nerve root that supplies sensation/movement signals from one part of your body to another part – leading one side feel numb or weak compared to before their accident occurred!


We know how to explain neurological symptoms such as tingling and shooting pain.


If you have experienced a back injury, there is a good chance that tingling and shooting pain will be part of your life. These symptoms are called paresthesias and neuropathic pain respectively. While these experiences can be quite frightening, the good news is that we know how to explain them in a way that makes sense for you.


According to the Mayo Clinic, paresthesias are caused by damage to sensory nerves in your body following spinal cord injury or other neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis or stroke. They can be felt as “pins and needles” sensations or even shocks of electricity passing through certain areas of the body. Neuropathic pain may feel like burning or stinging sensations that come on suddenly and then subside slowly over time; it may also radiate outward from where it originates in order to make itself known throughout the whole body at once.


We understand the neurology of the spine, the spinal cord, and the nerves.


The spinal cord is the bundle of nerves that sends signals from the brain to the body. It is surrounded by the vertebral column, which forms a strong protective shell around it. The spinal cord is sometimes called the "information superhighway" of the body because it carries motor and sensory signals between your brain and other parts of your body.

The spinal cord can be injured when there's trauma or damage to any part of it (including compression) or its coverings (vertebrae). Spine injury lawyers can help you understand how these injuries happen, so you know what to look out for if you or someone close to you has been injured in an accident that might have caused damage to their spinal cord, including:

  • Compression fractures to bones in their spine;

  • Herniated disks; and/or

  • Compression across joints in their spine

We know the difference between a painful spine injury and a devastating spine injury that causes partial or complete paralysis.


A painful spine injury is a disc bulge. This means the center of your spinal disc has moved out of place, but it's not far enough to cause any nerve damage. If you have a bulge, you may be able to feel it with your fingers and it may hurt when touched by another person's hand.


The difference between a painful spine injury and a devastating spine injury (like an actual herniation) is the degree of displacement—that is, how far out of place the center of your spinal disc has moved. Disc herniations are much more serious than simple bulges because they can cause permanent nerve damage and paralysis.


Our lawyers evaluate spine injury cases for lawsuit potential, as well as insurance claim potential.

In any serious motor vehicle accident or workplace incident involving an injury to the spine (scoliosis), it is often important to determine whether the injuries are likely to be permanent or not. If so, this can significantly affect your future treatment needs and how much money your claim might be worth.


If you're injured in a car accident and suffer from severe back pain or other issues after the crash, it may seem that filing a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver will be the best way to get compensated for all of your medical bills and other costs related to your recovery process. However, there are several advantages of filing an insurance claim on top of this decision:

Pros:

  • Less time spent in court because many cases are settled before trial

  • You may only need expert witnesses if you go to trial (instead of having them testify before each hearing)

Cons:

  • There's no guarantee that settlement offer will cover all costs associated with injuries sustained during accident; if settlement isn't sufficient then attorney fees must also be paid out-of-pocket by client

Money is not everything to us or our clients - we want you to get the medical care you need so that you can feel better.


We are here to help you get the medical care you need as quickly as possible. We know that money is not everything, and we want you to get well. Medical care should be the primary concern of anyone who has come into contact with a spinal injury lawyer, not just because there are emotional and physical needs involved in managing such an injury, but also because there are legal ones as well. If your case goes through mediation or trial without any type of settlement being made, our lawyers will still work with medical providers on your behalf so that your needs can be met during this difficult time in your life.
