Nevada Spine Injury Attorneys
Neck, back and spine injuries are the most common types of injuries that happen in auto crashes. For example, in a rear-end accident the victim’s head is often jerked back and forth rapidly. This sometimes forces the muscles in the neck and back to over stretch and cause severe swelling and pain.
Whiplash is a nerve-overloading trauma. The head whips too far forward, and then too far backward, stretching neck muscles beyond their normal limits. When a muscle stretches beyond its normal limits, the extreme and sudden forces create an abnormally strong message – so strong that it overloads the nerves and causes pain.
Although most strain and sprain injuries can be resolved with physical therapy or chiropractic treatment, a small percentage of these injuries produce chronic neck and/or back pain.
Neck Injury Diagnosis
If you have had a neck, back or spine injury and pain still persists even after therapy, you may have a serious and more permanent kind of injury involving nerve damage. If this is the case, you may need to have an EMG/Nerve Conduction Test to diagnose the problem.
A serious neck or back injury can also involve the disks in your spinal column. The disks in your spinal column are plate-like structures found between the vertebrae in your back and neck. If one or more of these disks herniate or rupture, it can put extreme pressure on the spinal nerve roots and cause significant pain.
Typically, an MRI test, CT scan or other advanced imaging technology identifies any potential disk damage (bulging, herniated or ruptured) or an X-ray to disclose possible fractures.
However, soft tissue injuries to the neck and back often are not disclosed by any form of imaging. As a result, recovering reasonable damages for soft tissue injuries is usually more difficult because of the absence of indisputable test results.
Neck and back injuries are often debilitating, and could require expensive surgery, follow-up medical care and physical therapy.
Do Not Rely on Insurance Companies
Do not accept any claim before you speak with an attorney. Many large insurance companies have adopted settlement policies that encourage their adjusters to offer quick payments to persons involved in an accident. Insurance adjusters will contact you or your family shortly after an accident to try to gain your confidence. In doing so, insurance adjusters often try to present themselves as the friend of the injured person or the family of the person who was killed in an accident. The goal of such contact is to settle the case on terms as favorable as possible for the insurance company.
