Call the personal injury attorneys Mainers trust
In a car accident, injuries to the back or spine are very concerning. These types of injuries can affect your ability to walk or move normally and can change your life. Our experienced car accident attorneys hold negligent parties accountable and help you recover the financial compensation you need and deserve.
At Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC, we know how serious back and injuries can be and how they can impact accident victims and their families. There are different types of injuries that can be suffered in a car crash, including:
- Back sprain from torn or stretched ligaments
- Back strain from stretched or torn tendons or muscles
- Fractured vertebrae – broken bones in the spinal column
- Herniated disk – one of the rubbery cushions between vertebrae slips out of place
- Incomplete spinal cord injury – the spinal cord is partially severed
- Complete spinal cord injury – the spinal cord is completely severed
People with back or spine injuries often need extensive medical treatment that may include surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. Recovery can take months or even longer. Some people never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.
Our Portland car accident lawyers are ready to fight for you
If a negligent driver caused the accident that left you with a back or spine injury, you deserve financial compensation. The driver may have been speeding or operating recklessly, or was texting. In some cases, the driver may have been fatigued or was under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Negligent drivers typically don’t accept responsibility and deny doing anything wrong.
Insurance companies are supposed to help the injured after an accident. They know there is a lot of money at stake, however, so they will likely challenge your claim. They may question the extent of your back or spine injuries. Sometimes, they’ll contact you with a settlement offer soon after the crash. Their offer won’t come close to covering all of the damages you have suffered.
