York Personal Injury Lawyers Handling Your Difficult Claims

Neck and back injuries are commonly caused by automobile accidents and falls. Even a minor neck or back injury can result in discomfort that requires anti-inflammatory medication to treat. To suffer only a "minor" spinal injury is uncommon, though, as just a slight collision can cause significant complications.

Serious neck and back injuries may cause:

  • Immobility
  • Severe pain
  • Migraines
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Paralysis

While some neck or back injuries result in immediate stiffness, sometimes it can take up to 24 hours for symptoms to present themselves following an accident. Due to this subtlety, if you have been in a preventable accident that was not your fault, you should not assume that you have suffered no injury.

It may be in your best interest to see your physician as soon as possible. Afterward, contact our York personal injury attorneys at Ilkhanoff & Silverstein to learn your legal options.

Dealing with Whiplash Injuries

One of the most common consequences of a back or neck injury is whiplash – when your head and neck are suddenly rocked back and forth by unexpected motion. The muscles and tendons in the neck can tear, sometimes causing chronic pain for weeks or longer as the wound heals. Even collisions as slow as 25 miles per hour can cause whiplash; do not ignore any soreness just because it was a low-speed accident.

Considering All Forms of Compensation

A back and neck injury can put you on your back, literally, for a long while as you try to recuperate. Just the thought of going back to work can be painful to someone in such a position. If you have been debilitated due to someone else's wrongdoing, you need to ensure that any financial compensation you pursue takes into account the here-and-now and the problems you may be encountering in the future.

Certain recoveries you should seek include:

  • Medical costs
  • Prolonged rehabilitation program fees
  • Repair bills (car accidents)
  • Reduced earning potential
  • Lost wages
  • Punitive damages

Contact a York Personal Injury Attorney About Your Injury Claims

Treatment for a neck or back injury can involve pain medication, chiropractic care, physical therapy or, in worse cases, invasive surgery. An injury to the spinal cord can result in quadriplegia or paraplegia; therefore, if you experience any kind of numbness, tingling or paralysis, it is critical that you see a doctor right away, as you may need an x-ray or CT scan. In the meantime, you should seek professional help filing a personal injury claim, leaving you free to rest and recover while we do all the heavy lifting.
