Brain/Spinal Injuries

Neck, back and spine injuries can result from traumas such as car or truck wrecks, slip and falls, or workplace injuries, etc. These injuries might be experienced in other parts of the body. For example, have you ever hurt your back and then had tingling in your fingers or legs? If so, you may have a spine injury. Also, pain in one part of your body may be caused by injury in another part of your body. Our bodies compensate for injuries, and that leads to pain in other locations.

Insurance companies are interested in paying you the smallest amount they can. They will try to settle your claim for a low amount, before you even know how severely you are injured. Statistics show that insurance companies pay larger amounts to people who are represented by lawyers.
