A motor vehicle accident is a violent event that can throw your body in unnatural directions. The resulting trauma to your back and neck can be painful and debilitating. Even at low speeds, you may sustain soft tissue injuries or partial rupture of your spinal disc. A high-speed crash may result in spinal cord damage and paralysis.

We devote our entire time and full resources to helping accident victims recover compensation under insurance claims and damages from at-fault drivers.

Your vertebrae are hard bones stacked one on top of the other to protect your spinal cord. Spongy spinal discs are located between each vertebra to cushion the bones and allow flexibility. These discs contain a soft jelly-like substance inside a firm, but malleable, shell.
During a car crash, a disc may rupture and spill the jelly-like substance over the surrounding nerves. A herniated disc, which is often called a bulging disc or slipped disc, can cause severe pain, numbness, tingling and weakness in the affected area and radiate into your limbs. A herniated disc in the lumbar region can lead to such painful conditions as sciatica and saddle anesthesia.
Your doctor may recommend physical therapy, rest and painkillers that prevent you from working to your full capacity or at all. Surgery may be necessary in severe cases that can place permanent limitations on your mobility.
The force of impact may injure the tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves of your back or neck. A strain or sprain to your neck causes a condition called whiplash that causes pain, stiffness, weakness, and headaches.
Soft tissue injuries may resolve with medical treatment, rehabilitation, rest, and medication. However, you may experience permanent weakness, stiffness, and pain that severely interfere with your work and the activities you once enjoyed.
Based on our meticulous investigation of your case, our auto accident firm negotiates the best possible insurance settlement to make you whole. Should you incur high medical costs, we can negotiate with your medical providers to reduce your bills.
