Neck And Back Injuries

Painful And Persistent Injuries

Injuries to the neck and back are some of the most debilitating and painful injuries that a person can suffer. At Edwards & Kautz, our lawyers dedicate ourselves to providing the legal support you deserve for these injuries.

The spine is a vital part of your body, supporting you and protecting your central nervous system, and because it is so important, it is fairly strong. Despite that strength there are many ways that a person can hurt their neck and back, such as:

  • Falls
  • Car collisions
  • Lifting and carrying heavy weights
  • Bending over for long periods of time

Overuse can also cause back and neck injuries that result from:

  • Degenerative disk disease
  • Herniated lumbar disks
  • Spinal arthritis
  • Spinal stenosis

The Costs Of Neck And Back Injuries

Treatment for neck and back pain can be complicated. Some patients are given medication, others are sent to physical therapy and many need back surgery. Recovery from accidents and injuries is expensive, and rehabilitation is a process that can last for months. Often total recovery isn't completely possible.
