Portland Back Injury Lawyer
One of the most reported symptoms following an accident is back pain. Whether you were in a car accident or slipped and fell in the supermarket, back pain is often the first sign of a substantial injury. And while you might think–or hope–the back pain will resolve itself after a day or two, in many cases things only get worse.
The reality is that even a “minor” back injury can have a significant impact on your overall quality of life. If your injury was the result of another person’s negligent, reckless, or careless actions, you have the right to seek compensation through the legal system. An experienced Portland back injury lawyer can review your case and advise you of your rights. Rosenbaum Law Group, PC, represents back injury victims in seeking damages from at-fault parties in these circumstances.
Getting Compensation for Your Back Injury
Any type of accident can lead to a back injury. These injuries can also take many forms. Some of the more common back injuries our clients experience include:
- herniated discs;
- pinched nerves;
- discogenic pain; and
- spinal cord damage.
It is important to seek out medical attention as soon as you start to experience back pain of any kind. Back injuries can be complicated. In turn, this often makes an insurance company balk at paying fair value for the personal injury claim. The insurance adjuster may try and argue your back injury is exaggerated or does not even exist. This is where working with a skilled back injury lawyer can prove invaluable. We understand all the insurance companies “delay and deny” tactics when it comes to dealing with back injury claims.
The reality is that a back injury can lead to a substantial amount of out-of-pocket and long-term financial losses for you and your family. An at-fault party can be forced to compensate you for these losses as part of a personal injury settlement or judgment. This compensation can include:
- all of your past and future medical expenses;
- your lost income due to time missed from work because of your back injury;
- vocational training if you are unable to return to your pre-injury job;
- mobility assistance devices;
- non-economic damages to cover your pain and suffering, mental anguish, and overall loss of enjoyment of life; and
- if your back injury was caused by malicious or especially egregious conduct, punitive damages.
