Neck & Back Injuries
San Francisco Bay Area Neck and Back Injury Lawyers
Neck and back injuries are some of the most common injuries in car, truck, motorcycle, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, as well as in slip and fall accidents at construction sites or on slippery surfaces or stairs.
One of the first recommendations that our personal injury attorneys make when potential clients visit the law firm to discuss their injuries, is that they obtain a thorough medical evaluation as soon as possible.

Seemingly Minor Injuries May Result in Serious Disability Due to Ongoing Pain
The more serious the back injury or neck injury, the stronger the case will be for compensation from negligent motorists, subcontractors or property owners. But even “minor” neck and back injury cases often make it difficult to impossible for victims to continue even sedentary office or service jobs. It can become too painful for the injured person to sit in a chair or stand at a customer service counter. We will help you recover any lost wages for your injury.
Imaging as Evidence
Ongoing chronic pain is very real to the victim, but insurance companies often play hardball with victims by saying that there may have been a “preexisting condition” which was simply exacerbated by the auto accident or slip and fall accident.
We suggest getting an MRI or X-ray to document the cause of your pain. It is easier to prove the source of pain and discomfort of a neck or back injury victim when a displaced disk, a ruptured disk, a herniated disk or a bulging disk is visible on an image.
When Your Neck or Back Injury Brings Down the Whole Family
As the injured person, you may be irritable due to the chronic pain after your whiplash injury. You may fear becoming addicted to pain-killing narcotics that your doctor prescribes as he tries to help you cope. Your spouse or children may be suffering along with you, as your pain and physical limitations bring loss to their lives as well.
We work hard to help people suffering from serious neck or back injury and their families obtain maximum compensation to cover medical bills, lost wages and other related expenses.
