Neck / Back Injury Lawyer
An injury to the back or the neck can be painful. These are common injuries that you can suffer in an accident at the workplace or in a vehicle accident. Such injuries can result in temporary loss of abilities or permanent disability. Escalating medical costs are a big worry.
Personal injury lawyers at the Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr. know the difficulties clients with such injuries face in regaining mobility. Dwindling finances, following up with insurance companies, and trying to get legal compensation present a daunting situation. We can help you file suit if your neck or back injury has resulted from negligent or reckless conduct of another party. Compensation includes medical costs, loss of income, damages for pain, and punitive costs imposed on the guilty party.
Nearly a million Americans experience a back injury at the workplace. Common causes include slipping and injuring oneself, being exposed to vibrations for long periods, lifting heavy articles without maintaining proper form, and repeatedly twisting the back and neck at odd angles. Soft tissue in the neck can get damaged over time, pinched nerves and ligaments are other problems. Vehicle accidents result in trauma; vertebrae fractures, herniated discs, pinched nerves, torn ligaments, and dislocated bones may result from such accidents. Paralysis and death are real possibilities.
If another party’s recklessness or carelessness has resulted in your injury then we are committed to exert ourselves to the full extent to get you compensation that is rightly yours. Under Texas law, a personal injury claim has to be initiated inside two years of the accident. If the accused party is a government organization, then the time window is even smaller.
We know how the defendants will try to oppose your claim by de-linking the injury with the accident and citing the treatment as unrelated and even unnecessary. We have the experience to build a strong case to negate their points. With proper due diligence, it is possible to prove the nature of the injury, its cause and debilitating effects in court, and that is what counts to make your claim stick.
