Sustaining a back or neck injury from an accident, fall, or workplace incident can be quite terrifying. Such an injury can have a huge impact on your financial, physical, and mental health. However, if you believe that your back or neck injuries were caused by the recklessness or carelessness of another party, you are within your rights to pursue damages and financial compensation that could help you recover.

Unfortunately, there are situations where the insurance agency will reject your claims. Some insurance adjusters may even try to offer you unsubstantial compensation. Bruscato Law provides detailed legal services for personal injury victims in Monroe, Louisiana. I can fight on your side to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company.

Back and Neck Injury Scenarios

According to the data obtained from Statista, about 17,730 spinal cord injuries occur every year in the United States. Vehicular accidents were the cause of 39.3% of the spinal cord injuries in the United States between 2015 and 2018. And at the end of 2018 there were approximately 291,000 people in the U.S. who had a spinal cord injury.

Some of the most common injuries individuals suffer from accidents and falls include back injuries, neck injuries, whiplash, and spinal cord injuries. Back and neck injuries are the most common for both workers’ compensation and car accident cases, but these types of injuries can occur from various types of other accidents as well. These include:

  • Catastrophic injuries

  • Pedestrian accidents

  • Sports-related accidents

  • Bicycle accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Semi-truck and commercial vehicle accidents

Any of these accidents can cause serious injuries that may leave you unable to move or work for several weeks or even months. If you or a family member has suffered back and/or neck injuries in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation. A personal injury attorney in Monroe can fight on your behalf to help you get the justice you deserve.



Types of Back and Neck Injuries

The most common types of back and neck injuries include:

  • Whiplash: This is often caused by an auto accident, especially a rear-end collision, which causes your head to thrust forward suddenly. When this occurs, soft tissues in your neck, including ligaments, muscles, and nerves become damaged. Depending on the force of the impact, neck pain from whiplash can be mild or severe.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries: A catastrophic injury to your spinal cord can be severe and costly. If the accident is serious enough to disrupt your vertebral bone, it can leave you incapacitated for life. If your life has been affected by a spinal cord injury, Bruscato Law can help you explore the legal options available to you. Read more about how I can help with your spinal cord case.

  • Lower Back Injuries: Lower back injuries, including strains and sprains, can occur due to a fall, auto collision, workplace accident, or other scenario. This damages vital ligaments and muscles in your lower back. Also, it interferes with your mobility and can limit your ability to carry out your daily activities.

  • Herniated Discs: This occurs when the vertebrae disc is shifted or displaced. The treatment often requires physical therapy, medications, or surgery.

  • Neck or Vertebral Fractures: This is a break in the cervical bone. Neck fractures may be caused by an auto accident, fall, or other trauma. It can lead to temporary or permanent paralysis or even death.

The idea of personal injury law is to help victims like you get their deserved justice and compensation when a careless person causes them harm. No matter what type of back or neck injury you’ve suffered, Bruscato Law can fight on your side and increase your chances of getting substantial compensation to help you recover.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits in Louisiana

Under the Louisiana Civil Code section 3492, a one-year statute of limitations will be granted to personal injury cases. Any failure to file a lawsuit within this given time period can make you unable to take any legal action to pursue damages.
