Causes of Back and Neck Injuries
Neck and back injuries can be chronic or acute. Chronic injuries develop over time and linger for months on end. Acute injuries happen all at once and are usually the result of trauma.
Common causes of back and neck injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Train and trolley accidents
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Maritime accidents
- Surgical errors
- Overuse in the workplace
- Repetitive or heavy lifting
- Improper lifting techniques
- Workplace accidents
If you’ve been injured in any of the above scenarios, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit, or at the very least, a workers’ compensation claim. Serious injuries, such as those sustained in a motor vehicle accident, may even warrant a catastrophic injury case.
Our experienced New Orleans back and neck injury attorneys can help you explore your options.
Our firm is dedicated to helping you through this difficult time. While litigation may be the last thing on your mind after a serious injury, filing suit can help you account for all the damages you have endured. It can also lend financial security for you and your family.
At The Voorhies Law Firm, we have a track record of results and won’t stop until we maximize your compensation. We are not afraid to go up against major insurance companies, nor go to court on your behalf.
Types of Back and Neck Injury
The most common back and neck injury is called whiplash. Whiplash can be sustained by any traumatic event that forces the head to move suddenly in one direction, then recoil in another. Along with possible damage to the ligaments, joints, and discs, those who sustain whiplash can also suffer from headaches, shoulder pain, and pain in both arms.
Other common types of back and neck injuries include:
Some of these injuries are more serious than others, but they will all result in hospital bills, missed wages, and other financial hardships.
How Are Back and Neck Injuries Treated?
Some back and neck injuries heal over time, but others are not curable. If you have a minor injury, you will likely need medications, rehabilitative therapy, and assistive devices. More serious injuries may indicate a lifetime of extra care and full-time assistance.
Additionally, back and neck injuries come with many complications. You may be unable to work, suffer nerve damage or difficulty breathing, or become depressed.
Don’t shoulder these burdens alone.
