Atlanta Auto Accident Attorneys Discuss Neck and Back Injuries


January 06, 2015

For over 30 years, the personal injury lawyers at Montlick and Associates have been protecting the rights of people who suffer debilitating injury because of the negligence of others.  We are aware that back and neck injuries are among the most common type of auto accident injuries that result in periods of temporary or permanent disability.  Neck and back injuries often result from trauma causing irritation or serious injury to the complex structures of the back and neck in car crashes, falls, construction accidents and other mishaps.

While a herniated disc is one of the most common type of back or neck injuries suffered in traffic accidents, other significant types of injuries include compression fractures, ruptured disks, spinal cord injuries, compression fractures and slipped disks.  Injuries to this region of the body can cause a magnitude of symptoms, such as nausea, spasms, tenderness, stiffness, headaches, impaired vision, memory loss, limited mobility and more.  The treatment for back and neck injuries incurred in traumatic events can range from physical therapy to surgery.  Severe back and neck injuries that cause impaired sensation, tingling or paralysis can be the signs of a severe injury.  Anytime you experience any form of injury to the neck or back in a fall or motor vehicle accident, you should seek prompt medical attention.

When individuals suffer injuries to the back and neck, they can face enormous financial, physical and emotional challenges.  Medical expenses can mount while household income flow is disrupted during a period of disability.  If the time off work is protracted, the financial pressure on an injury victim can become extreme and interfere with an injury victim’s recovery.  The stress and anxiety associated with painful injuries can be magnified by the inability to perform basic daily tasks and work.

When you experience neck and back injuries caused by a reckless driver, shoddy store maintenance or a fall from a ladder, you may have a right to compensation for your injuries.  An investigation and analysis of the facts and circumstances of the incident that caused the injury is necessary to determine the identity of all potentially liable parties and available insurance coverage sources.  For example, a negligent driver can be liable for violating traffic safety laws or engaging in unreasonably unsafe driving practices.  Many times we identify sources of insurance coverage that are clients were not aware of, and that are not volunteered by an insurance company.
