Neck and back injuries are common after being involved in an automobile accident. During the force of a collision, people instinctively brace themselves, using the arms, legs and back muscles, with the back taking a lot of the impact. Absorbing this force can cause severe injury, including broken bones, herniated discs, lumbar strain, sacroiliac dysfunction, and other soft-tissue injuries. In many cases, the impact will cause your neck to move very quickly in the opposite direction and back into place, causing whiplash or thoracic sprain, painful soft-tissue, and even brain and spinal cord injuries.
Unfortunately, although these kinds of soft-tissue injuries can be excruciating and debilitating, they are, in many cases, not taken seriously by insurance adjusters, because they can be difficult to prove. At Brandt & Sherman, you’ll work with a back injuries attorney who understands how to prove these injuries, with documented medical treatment and examinations by qualified physicians, physical therapists, pain specialists and surgeons.
When medical establishments or insurance Goliaths turn their back on you or deny you coverage, we’ll help you stand up to them and get you the back injury lawsuit settlement you’re owed.
