There is no question that the back and neck can absorb punishment. But the excessive force of an auto accident is often just too much. Damage to the complex and interconnected structures of the vertebrae can cause extreme injury.
A "minor" back injury often gets worse before it gets better, and insurance companies know this and immediately try to get victims of accidents to accept settlements that are far beneath the commensurate damages.
Leesburg Whiplash Attorney
We at Thompson, Evangelo & Kelly, P.A., understand the extent to which back and neck injuries can impair, disable and create pain. We are committed to taking our 40 years of combined experience to work on commission with you toward commensurate compensation for injuries including:
- Fractured vertebrae
- Herniated disk (ruptured disk)
- Lower back sprains and strains
- Pinched nerves or chronic pain
- Whiplash (cervical strain/sprain)
- Spinal cord injury/paralysis
Insurance companies commonly argue a back or neck injury is not accident related or that the treatment is not "reasonable and necessary." They generally argue more intensely if there is little damage to vehicles reasoning that if the vehicle is not damaged, the driver/passengers should not be injured.
As lawyers, we can reach out to some of the best medical professionals in Florida to help clients get scans and tests, document pain levels, demonstrate lost motion ranges and show the injury's debilitating limitations.
