Back and neck injuries are some of the most common outcomes in terms of physical trauma suffered by victims in car accidents. Even in situations where your spinal cord is not severely damaged, neck injuries and back injuries can be debilitating and impact your life forever. You should never minimize a neck or head injury- even a dull but persistent pain can make everyday life unbearable. Since back and neck pain from a car accident may not always be visible to others, you may have difficulty treating the root of the problems and could even be completely immobile some days. Of course, this will have a big impact on your life, but it can be hard when others don’t understand the extent to which your injuries have affected you. That’s where a San Diego neck & back injury attorney at The May Firm come in.
Our team of catastrophic injury attorneys represents victims across the San Diego area. If you have recently sustained a back or neck injury in an accident that could have been avoided, and was caused by someone else's negligence, you need to learn more about your legal options by initiating a free case evaluation. There is no obligation to work with an attorney if you have a free case consultation but this can be your opportunity to get some of your most important questions answered and determine your course of action, going forward.
Those individuals who have been severely injured in an accident caused by someone else's reckless behavior and are suffering the impacts as a result of a neck, back or other injuries may be entitled to compensation by filing a lawsuit.
Muscle strain is one of the most common injuries suffered in back and the neck. Occasionally muscles will tear or pull. When this occurs the muscle can attack the tendons and ultimately become extremely damaged. Strains can be a result of car accidents and may lead to some or all of the muscle fibers being torn.
In the event that the muscle fibers are damaged, the injury can usually be identified by symptoms like local bleeding, bruises, pain and broken blood vessels. Muscle strain injuries can be treated at home when mild but a more advanced case will require medical attention. Any muscle injury that lasts for more than 24 hours requires advanced treatment.
Any kind of neck injury can be extremely complicated from a treatment perspective. When one area of the neck is impacted, other parts will also suffer. In the event that you suffer a condition such as whiplash after a San Diego car accident, you may also be suffering muscle damage and ligament pain. The majority of neck injuries are classified as soft tissue injuries and they involve damage to the tendons, ligaments or muscles. Contusions, strains and sprains are all examples of soft tissue injuries. Signs of a soft tissue injury include bruising, pain and swelling.
A herniated disc injury can occur in the back or the neck and can be catastrophic. This type of injury occurs when the soft substance that makes up the disc is pushed out. It can become extremely painful and lead to numbness and weakness as well.
One of the most common outcomes for San Diego car accident victims is whiplash. This happens when a victim's head is thrown forward and backward in a car accident. The spinal cord and nerve roots can be severely damaged in this situation. You may notice the signs of whiplash as numbness, stiffness, dizziness, tingling, pain, weakness or difficulty sleeping. It is important to get attention from a medical professional.
If you have recently suffered a back or neck injury as a result of someone else's negligence on the roads of San Diego, you could be entitled to financial compensation. The only way to know for sure is to set up a consultation with an experienced neck and back injury lawyer today. Speaking with a lawyer will assist you with an evaluation of the legal facts of your case and give you your options moving forward.
Given that the medical conditions frequently associated with neck and back injuries can be severe and extremely expensive to treat, you need to evaluate all of your options and determine whether a legal claim is most appropriate. Call a San Diego neck & back injury attorney at The May Firm today for your free consultation.
