For years, the personal injury litigation lawyers of Winston-Salem’s Nagle & Associates, P.A. have been helping individuals who have been injured in car, truck, and motorcycle accidents make full physical and financial recoveries. Sustaining a back injury in a car accident—even a minor, low-speed crash—is extremely common. Unfortunately, for most accident victims, a back injury can mean time off from work and numerous visits to the doctor. When the injury is more severe, surgeries and physical therapy may be required—that is, if it is even possible to make a full recovery.
Insurers scale down their settlement offers to back injury victims. They argue that symptoms are exagerated, that the collision did not cause the back injury, or that the back injury was a pre-existing condition. If you have sustained a back injury in an accident and you do not have the proper legal representation, it may not be possible to recover anything more than minimal damages. At North Carolina’s Nagle & Associates, our personal injury litigation lawyers pride themselves on their ability to negotiate appropriately large settlements for our clients. We look closely at your x-rays, CT Scans, MRI imaging, orthopedic surgical reports and opinions, and we will show how the collision produced your injury, and how the injury has affected your physical ability and quality of life. Contact us today to discuss the back pain you are experiencing and any other injuries that you may have sustained in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident.
Back Injuries Due to Motor Vehicle Collisions
There are numerous ways that a driver or passenger’s back can be injured in a car or motorcycle crash. Some of the more common types of back injuries that our personal injury law firm experiences include:
- Damage to the cervical, thoracic or lumbar spine.
- Spinal cord damage resulting in immobility.
- Vertebral fractures.
- Disc swelling or dislocation.
- Stenosis producing nerve impingement.
- Soft tissue damage (whiplash).
- Spine/vertebrae dislocation.
- Muscular strains.
- Disc Herniation.
- Torn annulus.
- Lumbar spine and pelvic damage.
Almost all back injuries are painful and very few can heal properly without medical attention. Symptoms of back injuries are not always immediately apparent, so they can be missed by physicians at the onset. Even if your accident occurred some time ago, it is not too late to secure medical care to ensure proper recovery from all injuries.
Accident Injury Lawyers of Winston-Salem, Raleigh, Wilmington, Asheville, and Hickory
What we offer at Nagle & Associates is a team of personal injury litigation attorneys with combined decades of vehicle accident recovery experience. We have worked with the very best orthopedic surgeons and neurosurgeons in the country, and we know how to interpret and present the medical evidence contained in your treatment records. We will also help to review past medical records alongside the collision physics to prove that your vehicle collision was the true mechanism of your back injury. We will prove the full extent of your injuries and damages, and we will not consider an offer from an insurer until we have fully reviewed your case and calculated a reasonable settlement amount, which is invariably much higher than what the insurance company hopes to pay you.
Because we work on a competitive contingency basis, there are no up-front costs to hire our firm, and we are paid only when we collect money for you. To the extent that we increase the settlement value of your case,we pay our own fee. Our goal is to settle your case privately, with no court involvement. However, we will remain in the case until we collect what you would expect to win from a jury of your neighbors through a successful trial.
