Campbell Neck & Back Injury Lawyer
Neck and back injuries are a common result of traffic accidents. Car crashes can send bodies flying and twisting in all sorts of directions, leading to sprains, tears, fractures, and breaks. Neck and back injuries can easily become severe, leading to chronic pain, disability, and even paralysis. If you have suffered a soft tissue injury, damage to your spinal vertebrae, a sprain, a herniated disc, or other neck or back injuries, you could be facing functional limitations, time lost away from work, expensive treatments, and years of pain. When your injury is caused by a reckless driver or some other negligent actor, you have the right to compensation for your harm.
The Campbell neck & back injury lawyers at Solution Now Law Firm are ready to help you recover damages from the negligent parties that caused your injury. If a drunk, distracted, drowsy, or inconsiderate driver has left you with a severe neck or back injury, we can help. We will fight for your right to compensation for your medical bills, your lost income, your pain and suffering, and your loss of life enjoyment.
Common Neck and Back Injuries
Not all neck or back injuries are the same. Damage to the neck and back can range from moderate to severe, with differing levels of pain and other consequences. The personal injury attorneys at Solution Now Law Firm will help you recover for your neck or back injury, whatever damage you have suffered. Common neck and back injuries that our clients suffer after car accidents in Campbell include the following:
- Herniated discs
- Muscle and soft tissue strains, sprains, and tears
- Bone fractures and breaks
- Pinched nerves
Two of the most common types of injuries are neck sprains and herniated discs. Minor neck sprain can cause pain and stiffness, while severe neck sprain can lead to extreme pain and serious functional limitations. Herniated discs occur when the soft area between the neck and the spine vertebrae are damaged. The soft, rubbery area between vertebrae is known as the disc. When the insides of a disc are pushed past the margins of the disc due to extreme pressure, they may in turn put unnecessary pressure on the lumbar or cervical nerves. This can lead to excruciating pain, limited range of motion, and a host of additional short-term and long-term issues.
Neck and back injuries should not be taken lightly. If you believe you might have suffered a neck or back injury in an accident, seek medical attention immediately. Putting off a diagnosis can delay treatment and cause your injury to become even worse. Seeing a doctor soon after an accident will also strengthen your eventual claims for recovery by definitely establishing that your injury did occur in the accident, as opposed to at some other time. Speak with a dedicated neck and back injury attorney at Solution Now Law Firm for help finding appropriate treatment and securing compensation for your damages.
Whiplash syndrome is one of the most common injuries incurred in car accidents, particularly accidents involving a rear-end collision. A sudden rear-end collision can cause a car seat to push a person’s body forward while their head and neck swing backward. The movement causes the neck to hyperextend and then immediately hyperflex when the torso and head move back. The stressful movements lead to whiplash syndrome, which can cause severe cervical and neck injury, including nerve and tissue damage. Whiplash symptoms include chronic pain, vertigo, numbness, weakness, fatigue, or functional limitations in the neck, back, shoulders and arms. These symptoms can last months or years following an accident.
Whiplash syndrome is common even in low-speed collisions. The whipping motion causes the head and neck to travel much faster than even the vehicles involved in the crash, such that even a minor fender-bender in a parking lot can cause severe whiplash. Medical experts estimate that nearly one in ten of all victims of a rear-end collision will experience whiplash syndrome. Whiplash can require extensive, ongoing treatments, pain medication, and even surgery to secure a full recovery.
