The symptoms and outcomes of a neck or back injury vary depending on where the injury is located, and whether it is connected to a spinal cord injury or muscle strain. Common neck and back injuries include:
- Herniated disks
- Lumbar strain and sprain
- Bulging disks
- Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis
- Numbness or soreness in the lower back
- Chronic pain
- Radiculopathy (pain or numbness) into the extremities
Because we need to use our necks and backs for almost everything we do, a back or neck injury can have a serious impact on a person's ability to function. Although some back and neck injuries resolve after a few months of treatment with physical therapy or medications, some back injuries can lead to chronic pain that is difficult to treat. Depending on the severity of the injury, treatment could include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) tests or even back surgery. More extreme spinal injuries could result in paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. In addition, patients could be required to undergo ongoing physical therapy or work-hardening programs to achieve maximum rehabilitation.Serious Back Injuries Could End Your Career
Disk herniation and other serious back injuries can limit your ability to work and function even if they are properly treated. At Kraft Davies Olsson PLLC, our personal injury attorneys take time to investigate the immediate and long-term consequences of your injury. When necessary, we work with qualified medical specialists, orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, physical therapists and occupational therapists to build a strong claim to pursue compensation against negligent parties. We are highly selective in the cases we handle and only take cases with merit and that will result in favorable outcomes for our clients.Contact Us
