Murrieta Spine Injury Lawyers

Attorneys for Injuries to the Back and Neck in Riverside County

When you injure your back or your neck, it can negatively affect every aspect of your life. Back and neck injuries can make simple tasks almost impossible due to decreased range of motion and excruciating pain. Unfortunately, neck and back injuries are among the most the common injuries suffered in car crashes, truck wrecks, and slip and fall accidents. At the Maineri Law Firm, our experienced personal injury lawyers are dedicated to helping victims of back and neck injuries recover compensation from any and all negligent parties.

Common Neck and Back Injuries

It is possible to hurt your neck or back in many different ways when you are involved in an accident. Our team is ready to assist you in collecting damages related to:

  • Soft-tissue injuries: Your neck and back are comprised of a complicated network of bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Muscles can be bruised, torn, or strained while tendons and ligaments can be stretched violently or ruptured as the result of an accident. Whiplash is a common soft-tissue injury that affects the neck, and it is caused by a sudden forward-and-backward motion of the head.
  • Herniated, ruptured, and bulging discs: In your spine, there 23 vertebrae that run from the base of your skull down to your pelvis. Between each pair of vertebrae, a fibrocartilage disc works as a shock absorber. These discs can bulge or rupture in an accident. A herniated disc or ruptured disc can put pressure on your spinal cord causing intense pain. Surgery may be necessary in some cases.
  • Compression fractures: If your spine is suddenly compressed, the vertebrae themselves can fracture, and pieces of bone can push against your spinal cord. Compression fractures are often very painful and may cause a loss of mobility.

It is also possible to suffer a pinched nerve in your neck or back as a result of an accident. Pinched nerves may require long-term physical or occupational therapy to correct, though surgery may be required as well.

Temecula Spinal Cord Injury Lawyers

While your spine is comprised of bone, muscles and other structures, your spinal cord itself is a thick bundle of nerve tissue that transmits signals between your brain and the rest of your body. Your spine protects and supports your spinal cord, but in an accident, spinal cord injuries can occur. Damage to your spinal cord could severely decrease your motor skills and mobility. You could also be partially or totally paralyzed. In the most severe cases, severing the spinal cord can cause death.

At the Maineri Law Firm, we know that spinal cord injuries must be addressed with cautious, highly specialized medical care. Such injuries often require many months or years of rehabilitation, the costs of which can reach hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. There is also no guarantee of a full physical recovery.
