Neck & Back Injuries

Injuries to the neck and back can be difficult to diagnose, are often resistant to treatment, and frequently result in long-term consequences, including pain, reduced mobility, and disability.

In many cases, back or neck injuries may not be readily apparent after an accident. Pain and reduced mobility may present days or even weeks after trauma, or may grow more severe following a traumatic event. Unfortunately, these types of injuries are also among those most vigorously contested by at-fault insurance companies, particularly when soft-tissue injuries to muscles, ligaments and joints are responsible as these types of injuries may not show up on diagnostic tests such as x-rays or CT scans.

The chronic and debilitating nature of these injuries can impact a victim’s life for years to come, even as insurance companies and their lawyers deny or minimize their existence. Without experienced legal help from the outset, a victim’s long-term prognosis for recovery can be bleak. At Brandt & Sherman, our Lafayette personal injury lawyers are committed to fighting for the rights of victims and families from the first phone call, so they can concentrate on treatment, rehabilitation and recovery. We accept clients on a contingency fee basis, which means we are paid based on a portion of the financial recovery we are successful in making on your behalf. There are no upfront costs or fees to prevent you from seeking timely and experienced legal help and we offer free and confidential consultations to discuss your fights.

Neck and Back Injury Lawsuits

These types of injuries most commonly result from traffic collisions, work accidents, or premises liability claims that result from preventable injury on someone’s property.

Common neck injuries include:

  • Neck sprains
  • Pinched nerves
  • Neck fractures of the cervical vertebrae
  • Whiplash
  • Tendon and muscle damage

Common back injuries include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Fractured vertebra
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis

Neck and back injuries are complicated, and even the best treatment results in uncertain outcomes. In too many cases, long-term medical complications result in chronic pain, declining mobility, and a reduced quality of life.

These long-term risks make seeking the early advice of an experienced Lafayette personal injury lawyer essential to protecting your rights, as well as your long-term physical well-being and the financial well-being of you and your family. It’s important to understand that at-fault insurance companies assign your claim to a team of adjusters, investigators, and legal, medical and financial experts with the goal of minimizing the cost of your claim. Even when insurance company representatives appear to be sympathetic and responsive, by offering a quick settlement for example, they are looking to minimize the long-term cost of treatment and recovery. Signing documents and accepting a settlement without seeking the advice of an experienced personal injury law firm in Lafayette can eliminate your ability to seek additional compensation, and leave you and your family on the hook for decades of medical treatment, lost wages, and other costs associated with a neck or back injury.

You and your family are entitled to both economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Past and future pain and suffering
  • Lost earnings capacity
  • Long-term disability
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Mental anguish
  • Cost of rehabilitation and home care
  • Loss of consortium

These costs cannot possibly be known in the weeks following serious neck or back trauma — and certainly an at-fault insurance company should never be relied upon to calculate the fair value of a settlement. An experienced personal injury law firm in Lafayette will use medical and financial professionals to carefully calculate the full and fair value of your claim and will work to protect your rights at each stage of the process.
