Legal Help After Accidents Causing Neck or Spinal Cord Injuries

The purpose of a financial settlement after a car accident or other type of accident caused by someone's careless or reckless behavior is for the accident victim to receive fair compensation. The compensation is intended to cover unpaid medical bills, lost wages due to time off work, pain and suffering, and future medical needs for long-term or permanent injuries.

Insurance companies often fight hard against injury victims who claim neck and spinal cord injuries. To improve your chances of receiving full and fair compensation after an injury accident resulting in neck and spinal cord injuries, seek legal help from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why insurance companies fight against compensation for neck and spinal cord injuries

It can be difficult for a lawyer to prove a connection between neck and spinal cord injuries and the severe pain they cause. Oftentimes, neck and spinal cord injuries do not show up on imaging tests. Without proof of the damage, the pain caused by the damage and the medical procedures made necessary by the damage — the insurance company is unlikely to agree to compensation.

Louisville personal injury trial attorney Bixler W. Howland has significant experience representing victims of car accidents, tractor trailer accidents and other types of accidents who suffer from neck and spinal cord injuries such as:

  • Herniated or slipped discs
  • Ruptured discs
  • Soft tissue injury like whiplash
  • Temporary paralysis
  • Spinal cord injury resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia

Due to our decades of experience representing victims of neck and back injuries, we are familiar with the latest imaging techniques that may be used to gather medical proof of these injuries.
