Back and Neck Injury

Back and neck injuries are often the result of a car accident or motorcycle accident. A back or neck injury can change your life forever, potentially leaving you with chronic pain, limited range of motion, and stiffness. Left untreated, the injury can become even worse and eventually steal your mobility. At Mike Agruss Law, we know that back and neck injuries can impact you on a daily basis, and the effects can even branch into knee or hip problems. If your daily life has become challenging due to a car accident, work-related injury, slip and fall accident, or some other hazard, contact Mike Agruss Law, for assistance securing compensation.

Common Back and Neck Injuries

While some back and neck injuries resolve on their own, or with the help of medication, any injuries requiring surgery may result in chronic pain or permanent disability. Common cases we handle include • Slipped discs. Even a single slipped disc can send shockwaves through your entire body as you walk, jump, or even move your arm. • Lumbar strain. This type of injury is common among people who perform heavy lifting and intense labor. If you work in construction, a stock room, or a factory setting, your lower back may experience a great deal of pain. • Sciatica. The shooting pain of sciatica can make even the most basic tasks unbearable. Sciatica may be the result of a car accident, or an injury that twists the spine, including heavy lifting. • Reduced range of motion. Cervical radiculopathy is a common injury caused by repetitive stress. If you work in a job that requires repetitive tasks, such as speaking on the phone for long hours, you may get disc compression in your neck that causes shooting pain and a limited range of motion. • Slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents can occur anywhere, including on the job, at home, or in a public place. These accidents can often cause serious injuries, and the property owner should be held liable for any dangerous conditions or negligence.

How Insurance Companies Fight Back and Neck Injury Claims

Insurance companies are very experienced at handling neck and back injury claims as they are very common. This is why it is important to have an experienced attorney to protect your interests. For example, when an injury is the result of a car accident with property damage of less than $2,000, insurance companies often flag the case as “minor impact.” From there, the insurance carrier will argue that it was impossible for you to have sustained a serious neck or back injury from the accident. The truth is, various studies have found that there is no clear relationship between physical injuries and property damage. The few studies that do find a link do not account for the countless variables that can impact whether a person is hurt in an accident. These studies are also typically funded by the insurance injury.
