Why Choose Us?
We can help you determine the person or entity responsible for your injury and what’s needed to build a strong case against those at fault, including the nature of your injuries and the treatment required to recover, or at least improve, your condition. Sadly, the effects of some back and spinal injuries can’t be fixed. Herniated discs and spinal cord injuries can have traumatic immediate effects, then lead to pain and additional health problems throughout life.
It doesn’t take a large amount of force to cause a back or spinal cord injury – you can get a herniated disc just twisting your body too fast. When a large truck crashes into a motorcycle or car, the impact can cause severe back injuries. The driver of a car hit from behind may suffer neck or spinal injury, called whiplash, from the head snapping back and forth violently. It is difficult to predict how the nerves and muscles in the back will react to trauma, or how severe or long-lasting the resulting effects.
The experienced attorneys at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh have handled many back and spine injury cases, and we know the challenges in demonstrating the injury’s effects. We investigate thoroughly and consult experts to support your case. Our attorneys also handle lots of workers’ compensation claims because accidents on job sites often result in back injuries. If a work-related accident happened due to faulty equipment, you can also file a third party claim against the manufacturer to recover damages beyond what workers’ comp will pay.
Back and spine injuries are notorious for causing pain many years after the initial incident, and damaged nerves are more prone to repeat injuries if proper precautions aren’t taken. No two accidents or injuries are the same, so each case is different. Creating a successful back or spine injury claim takes knowledge, experience and effort, which are all in supply at Nicholas, Perot, Smith, Bernhardt & Zosh.
