Neck and back injuries can be straightforward, or the symptoms can creep up on you over time. You may not realize that you suffered a neck or back injury immediately after an accident. That is just one of many reasons why you should always get checked out right away, even if you don’t think you’ve been hurt.
If you know exactly when you were injured, you may not fully know the factors that contributed to each specific injury and who can be held responsible. The experienced Los Angeles injury attorneys at Sheridan & Rund, PC, thoroughly investigate each accident case that we handle to identify all liable parties and every avenue of compensation so that you can recover the full amount that you need and deserve for your injuries.
Neck and Back Injuries
Neck and back injuries can occur in many situations including:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- Falling from a height
- Criminal attacks
- When playing sports
- When a defective product malfunctions
Examining Each Case
Each case is unique and requires thorough investigation so that you can pursue full compensation. For instance, if you suffer a back injury after your ladder collapsed at work, you may assume that the ladder was not set up correctly. You receive your Workers’ Compensation benefits, but they don’t cover all of your losses and you are barred from suing your employer. However, when we investigate your case, we may discover that the ladder you were using has a known defect which causes it to collapse, and that you have the opportunity to seek the full compensation you need through a third-party lawsuit.
