Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

Amber is heaven sent!! Amber and her team worked very hard on my case!! They checked on me while I had my weekly doctor visits. They were very detailed with my settlement. I didn’t have to second guess anything. I would recommend her to anybody who is in a car accident !! I’ve even referred my love ones who also needed her to represent them in an accident. She made my process as painless as possible. I wish I could give her 10 stars!!

I was referred to Amber by my daughter-in-law. I was involved in two rear end collisions in a three month period. She did an excellent job keeping me informed and explained everything to me, in a manner that I could understand. She followed through with me until I had my settlements.

Atlanta Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer for
Serious Injuries to Your Back

Back and spinal cord injuries are among the most serious injuries you can suffer.

From chronic pain to total paralysis, a back or spinal cord injury can change your life forever. You may be entitled to compensation for your injury – compensation that you need to pay your bills and take care of your family. If you have been injured and are wondering whether you should pursue a claim, contact an Atlanta spinal cord injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Atlanta Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer Explains Types of Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

There are a wide variety of back and spinal cord injuries you can suffer in an accident:

  • Herniated discs: The discs of tissue between the vertebrae in your spine can bulge or slip due to the violent forces caused by an accident. The herniated disc can press on nerves and other surrounding tissue and cause considerable pain. They often require extensive surgery to repair. In serious cases, you could be facing disability due to a disc injury.
  • Fractures: Falls or car accidents often result in broken vertebrae, a very serious injury. It can take several months to fully heal if you break your back.
  • Spinal cord injuries: These are the most serious back or neck injuries you can suffer. When the spinal cord is damaged, it can result in partial or total paralysis. Whether partially or totally severed, you could be facing permanent disability.
  • Nerve damage: Trauma to the back or neck can damage the nerves, resulting in pain that radiates out to your extremities. Common symptoms of nerve damage are tingling or loss of sensation in your extremities.
  • Whiplash: Whiplash is a common injury in rear-end car accidents. The force of the accident causes the head to violently whip back and forth, resulting in damage to the nerves and considerable strain on the muscles and ligaments in the neck.

The above is not an exhaustive list. You should contact an Atlanta spinal cord injury lawyer as soon as possible no matter what kind of back or neck injury you have suffered.

Symptoms of a Back or Spinal Cord Injury

Back and spinal cord injuries are not always immediately apparent. You may feel fine immediately after the accident, but then the pain manifests itself in the days to follow. You should get a thorough medical exam following your accident if you experience any of the following symptoms:

  • Numbness or loss of sensation
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Chronic or severe headaches
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Loss of fine motor skills
  • Delayed reflexes
  • Respiratory problems
  • Partial or intermittent paralysis
  • Persistent stiffness or soreness
  • Chronic pain

No matter what your symptoms, it’s important to listen to your body. An untreated back or neck injury can lead to other problems or become a permanent disability.

How Back Injuries Can Occur

Any force or trauma to the back or spinal cord can result in a serious injury. For example:

If you have suffered a back or spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence, an Atlanta spinal cord injury lawyer can evaluate your claim and help you understand your options.
