Back injuries are extremely common in car accidents, even in collisions that occur at low speeds. As the individual is seated in the vehicle, being thrown forward and backward in an impact can seriously damage soft tissue, bones and the spinal cord. The degree of injury suffered in such accidents varies widely, but when the back is involved the level of pain suffered by the individual can be extreme. Even when the injury does not include a damaged spinal cord or shattered bones, the bruising and strains can create a long period of serious pain and inability to function normally. In any car accident case in which your back has been injured, it is critical that you contact a Riverside injury lawyer to assist you with the claim that must be made for the damages suffered.
When dealing with an insurance company without an attorney from the firm supporting you and protecting your interests, it is very possible that you will find your claim reduced or in some cases valid claims are denied. This situation is difficult to deal with, as there are complex forms, interviews and you could be left on hold or passed from section to section over the phone, getting conflicting information from every person you speak with. At The Law Offices of Gerald L. Marcus, the legal team has almost 3 decades of dedicated service to the injured in car accident cases. Over the years in practice, the firm has developed powerful resources to apply to the case and to assist in the fight for fair compensation in back injury cases.
As back injuries are difficult to deal with medically, and vary widely in recovery time, it is critical that you have the support of an attorney from the firm to analyze your specific case and determine what types of damages should be part of your claim. In many cases, the individual either cannot work or can only function with assistance from strong pain-killers. It is often advised by medical authorities that resting without further straining your back is vital. However, your work and paycheck are important, and if you cannot work due to injuries, the loss of wages and future wage loss must be a part of your claim. Our team will aggressively pursue your claim and fight to protect your right to fair treatment and recovery of damages after a back injury in a car accident case.
