Experience With Texas Neck & Back Injury Claims
At The Bob Richardson Law Firm, our Personal Injury lawyers have assisted clients who have damaged their neck or back in a variety of different accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Construction accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Using dangerous and defective consumer products
A back injury is particularly common at work. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), nearly one million people suffer a job-related back injury each year from slipping and falling, constant exposure to vibration, straining themselves while lifting a heavy object or from a sudden or repetitive twisting, bending or reaching motion.
Neck damage to soft tissues such as nerves, ligaments and muscles frequently result from work-connected falls, lifting heavy objects, awkward movement or being caught in an awkward position for a sudden or sustained period of time.
The sudden trauma of a car, truck or motorcycle accident may lead to severe neck and back injuries, including whiplash, pinched nerves, disk injury or fractures of the vertebrae.
Neck or back injuries may lead to health problems, such as nagging pain, headaches, dizziness or a tingling or numbness in the neck, back and limbs. In the worst cases, a neck or back injury can cause paralysis or even death.
In many cases, a neck or back injury is caused by an accident that could have been prevented. If another person or company caused your injury, you may be entitled to compensation if you are able to prove damages that include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost past and future income
- Pain and suffering
- Punitive damages
At The Bob Richardson Law Firm, we consult with an extensive network of experts, and our attorneys and staff use the latest technology to build and present our cases. If you have suffered a neck or back injury because of another person’s carelessness, we will work tirelessly to maximize your recovery.
