Injuries affecting your back, neck, and/or spinal cord are amongst the most severe, and the consequences of such injuries can be drastic and life-altering. Oftentimes, back, neck and spinal cord injuries impair the victim’s ability to work, or even to enjoy life altogether. Their disability might interfere with everything from recreational activities to basic daily activities like making breakfast in the morning. Recovery from a personal injury may require long-term, consistent rehabilitative treatment, surgeries, and advanced medical care. In many cases, making a full recovery proves to be physically impossible.
If you’ve suffered back, neck, and/or spinal cord injuries as a direct result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to obtain compensation from the responsible parties. Given the seriousness of these injuries, however, you don’t need an absentee lawyer — you need a team that fully supports you at every phase of the process, and that takes a compassionate approach to representation.

The back, neck, and spinal cord together form an incredibly complex neuromuscular system, and even relatively minor symptoms may be indicative of more substantial system-wide issues. As such, it’s important that — after an accident — you obtain a full medical diagnosis, even if your injuries initially seem insignificant. Testing and imaging may reveal severe injuries lurking beneath the surface.
Back, neck, and spinal injuries are not always caused by catastrophic accidents. In many cases, repeated stresses build up over time and result in an injury (for example, a warehouse worker may develop back problems after years of lifting heavy boxes).
Possible causes of injury may include:
