Back and spinal cord injuries can range from minor impairments to debilitating pain and paralysis. At the law firm of Seiler, Anderson, Fife & Marshall LC, our Provo Lawyers represent people who have suffered these injuries in motor vehicle crashes, slip-and-falls, and other accidents caused by someone else’s negligence. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your personal injury case.
Obtaining Treatment for a Back Injury
Back pain following an accident can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Since back problems can be common, especially in older individuals, many insurance companies tend to blame pain on existing conditions and do not offer fair compensation to the victims.
If you have suffered back pain following an accident, it’s important to obtain appropriate care from a back specialist and follow the treatment plan your doctor prescribes for your recovery. This is important not only for your health but to document the injury for the insurance company.
You also need to be patient. Our Provo Attorneys will not seek to resolve your claim until you reach what is known as maximum medical improvement. If your back heals, that is the best outcome for everyone concerned. However, if you suffer lasting impairment, you will need compensation for past and future medical care, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Compensating Paralysis Victims
If you have suffered paralysis, you will need significant assistance for the rest of your life. While no amount of money can compensate you for what you have lost, your recovery from a personal injury lawsuit can ensure that money is there to take care of your future needs.
