Common Back, Neck, and Spine Injuries

In a motor vehicle collision or other type of accident, you can experience major damage to the muscles, bones, and nerves in your neck and back. Our attorneys can help you address issues such as:

  • Herniated or slipped discs: The spine is composed of vertebrae that provide support allowing you to walk upright while protecting the nerves in the spinal cord. "Discs" comprised of tissue act as cushions and shock absorbers between the vertebrae. Unfortunately, these discs can be damaged in an accident. When discs rupture or bulge inward, they can put pressure on the spinal cord, which can result in severe pain or nerve damage resulting in paralysis. Surgery may prove necessary to correct these issues, relieve pressure on the spinal cord, and restore range of motion.
  • Spine fractures: When the spine becomes compressed suddenly due to the strong forces the body is subjected to in an accident, the vertebrae may break. These injuries may involve compression fractures that put pressure on the spinal cord, and in serious cases, the spinal cord may be partially or completely severed. Damage to the vertebrae and spinal cord can cause a great deal of pain, and a severed spinal cord will often result in complete paralysis in the parts of the body below the injury.
  • Soft tissue injuries: The neck and back contain numerous muscles, tendons, and ligaments. An accident may cause these tissues to be torn or strained, which can result in serious pain, loss of range of motion, and an inability to move about or perform fine motor tasks. Whiplash is one such soft tissue injury that can affect the neck, and it may be caused by rapid back-and-forth movements of the head in an accident.

South Florida Spine Injury Attorneys

Your spine is composed of bone, cartilage, and other tissues that safeguard your spinal cord. The nerves in the spinal cord are a crucial part of the central nervous system, since they carry signals between your brain and other bodily systems. If your spine is damaged in an accident, you may experience a severe spinal cord injury that could result in decreased motor skills or even paralysis. In more serious situations, a spinal cord injury may result in wrongful death.
