Back & Neck Injuries from Car Accidents

Injuries from a car accident can be obvious immediately after impact or develop years later. If your back or neck were injured in a car crash, you might not feel the pain or discomfort immediately. As a victim, you are entitled to pursue benefits for your injuries from the at-fault driver. As soon as you leave the accident scene, you should know how to hold a negligent driver responsible for your injuries and the resulting medical bills. The accident attorneys of the Coye Law Firm want to help you get back to normal following a car accident. We urge you to seek medical treatment for your injuries, even if you think that your pain can be cured by a little bit of rest. Let our offices worry about the paperwork and reimbursement for medical care and property damage while you treat your injuries. You need an accident lawyer to help you recover from back and neck injuries in a car accident.
 

Common Back and Neck Injuries

There are many ways that your neck and back can be injured in an accident. You can be hurt by extreme forces during impact in any of the following accident scenarios:
  • Rear-end accident
  • T-bone accident
  • Head-on collision
  • Rollover accident
  • Drunk driver accident
  • Truck accident
The back and neck are some of the most vital parts of the body to protect. If your brain or spinal cord become hurt, your injuries can result in a lifelong disability or even death. Typical injuries or conditions of the back and neck include:
  • Broken bones
  • Whiplash
  • Slipped or bulging discs
  • Muscle spasms
  • Muscle strains and sprains
  • Paralysis
If you were hurt by a negligent driver, you may be able to hold them responsible. 
 

Levels of Liability

Back and neck injuries from a car accident can range from mild to life-threatening. See a doctor after the collision to make sure that you get all of the proper treatment needed to recover. As you go through treatment, the attorneys and staff of the Coye Law Firm will work on your case. We communicate with your health insurance carrier, car insurance provider, and the at-fault driver's insurance companies to get maximum benefits for you. As we resolve your personal injury claim, we begin to assess whether or not you can claim benefits for your lifelong impairment. Back and neck injuries often keep people from working and earning an income for themselves and their families. If this happens, we can work with you to apply for Social Security disability benefits or compensation from another disability insurance policy. Call the Coye Law Firm to speak with a personal injury attorney who can guide you through the aftermath of a car accident. Our aggressive yet compassionate staff is ready to take your case and reclaim medical benefits for your neck or back injuries.
