Neck and Back Pain

Serious Neck And Back Pain Demand Serious Attention From A Personal Injury Accident Lawyer

Neck and back injuries can be tricky. You may feel relatively fine at the scene of your rear-end accident or fender-bender. A little rattled and a little sore, perhaps, but otherwise OK. Hours or even days later, however, you can develop debilitating neck and back pain that requires extensive and expensive medical treatment. To protect your legal rights, you should have any injury examined at the scene. Follow up with a visit to your own doctor to begin building a medical record of your case. And call an experienced Columbus neck and back pain lawyer to help guide you along the way.

Symptoms of back and neck injuries include:

  • Pain spreading from your back to your arm, neck or down your legs
  • A tightening of chest muscles
  • Muscle weakness, numbness or tingling sensations in your fingers or hands

Back and neck injuries can be catastrophic and have a long-term impact on the quality of your life for you and your loved ones. These injuries can include broken backs, paralysis, paraplegia, quadriplegia, ruptured or slipped discs and spinal cord injuries. Auto accidents, truck accidents and motorcycle accidents all can lead to debilitating back and neck injuries. If someone else's reckless behavior was a factor in your accident, the time is now to take aggressive legal action.
