Neck and back injuries are a pervasive problem across the country, with many causing ongoing pain and limiting victims’ mobility. A neck injury can leave you unable to move your head, while a serious back injury can cause paralysis.
However, these injuries are often downplayed. People believe that neck and back injuries are just a way for victims to take advantage of insurance companies and corporations. In actuality, neck and back injuries can be difficult to prove, and victims rarely get the full compensation they deserve without aggressive representation by an attorney.
Have you suffered back or neck injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence? Don’t try to claim compensation on your own. Let the team at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. help you. Call us at (312) 236-2900 or reach out online.
Just a handful of injuries make up the majority of neck and back injury cases. Common injuries include:
Given the serious nature of many neck and back injuries, you may wonder if you need an attorney. Some people believe that, if they’ll need ongoing care for severe injuries, it doesn’t make sense to hire an attorney and lose a portion of their settlement.
However, this is exactly why you need an attorney. Neck and back injuries are extremely serious, and you could be left without income for an extended period of time as you heal. You can expect the liable party’s insurance company to offer a paltry payout that does not reflect the severity of your injuries. If your injury requires ongoing care and you eventually realize that you should have received far more, you are unable to ask for more. That’s why you need to ask for the right amount the first time and fight aggressively to get it.
The team at Staver Accident Injury Lawyers, P.C. advocates fiercely for every client. We know that an injury can be extremely expensive and seriously disrupt your life. Whether your case is settled through the insurance company or fought in the court system, we are here for you every step of the way.
In order to seek compensation for a back or neck injury, you must be able to prove several elements:
A major part of this is demonstrating the severity of your injuries. Your legal team will create the strongest case possible by gathering evidence. Getting prompt medical care is essential, as it documents the severity of your injuries immediately after the accident. You must attend all scheduled and recommended appointments. Your medical records are an important piece of evidence.
You might also want to keep a personal injury journal. Pain is subjective, but a journal allows you to outline how your injuries have impacted your life. A personal injury journal describes your pain level each day and details the ways in which your injuries limit your daily activities.
Time is of the essence after an accident. Contacting a personal injury attorney promptly gives them the chance to start gathering evidence, building your case, and fighting for the compensation you deserve. Take the first step now.
