Do You Have a Back or Spinal Injury Claim?

Even if your back hurts from a car accident, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have the right to compensation. You need to see a doctor right away and get a diagnosis. Then, you need to have an experienced back and spinal injury lawyer assess your case.

Troy Marsh will listen to your story and ask a few questions. Because he has over 26 years of experience, he can quickly determine whether you have a valid claim. If he believes you’re entitled to compensation for a back or spinal injury, he’ll say so.

Identifying Who’s to Blame

It’s one thing to know someone else caused the car accident, but it’s another thing entirely to identify who is actually liable. Sometimes fault is straightforward. The other driver might have been negligent, and their insurance policy will cover your damages. But, it helps to have a lawyer investigate fault in more complex cases, like those involving commercial vehicles, tractor-trailers, rideshare vehicles like Uber and Lyft, or government vehicles.

Let Us Prove Negligence

To win compensation for a back or spine injury after a car crash, you have to prove that the other party owed you a duty of care and failed to live up to that responsibility. In other words, their carelessness or recklessness caused the accident and your injuries. Proving all of this requires evidence.

Attorney Marsh will gather all the evidence available, including the police report, any traffic tickets issued, eyewitness statements, photos of the crash, and your medical records. If important evidence isn’t immediately available, he’ll use the discovery process to get it. From there, Troy will present all the evidence in a way that clearly establishes fault and maximizes the value of your claim.

What to Expect after a Back Injury

After being rear-ended, you might feel lower back pain. Or, you might feel upper or middle back pain if you sustain a herniated disc in a car accident. In a serious collision, your spinal injury may even be life altering and catastrophic. No matter where you’re experiencing pain, it’s important to see a doctor. You should get a formal diagnosis regarding your back injury and then follow the doctor’s recommended treatment plan.

After seeing a doctor and getting treatment, which could be anything from physical therapy to a discectomy or spinal fusion after a car accident, talk with a back and spinal cord injury lawyer.

Back or Spinal Damage Compensation

This awful time is made worse by the financial consequences. The first medical bills might have arrived, and you might be wondering how you’ll pay all them all without the same income.

You might be entitled to compensation for:

To win maximum compensation, you need evidence of your injuries, whether physical, mental, or financial. Attorney Marsh will review your expenses, document how your injuries impacted your life you, and explain what you are legally entitled to. Then we’ll pursue all of it with the urgency your case demands.

The Back Injury Claims Process

It obviously stressful dealing with a back injury, and you’ll want things over with as soon as possible. But you should always work with your own attorney before talking with another driver or insurance company. An insurer might call with questions or ask you to give a statement. Your lawyer can prepare you to talk with the other insurer in a way that doesn’t hurt your claim.

Attorney Troy Marsh will gather evidence, evaluate your claim’s value, and pursue an insurance settlement. He demands that insurers respond fairly.

A lot of insurers try to get car accident victims to accept a low settlement offer. Whenever you receive an offer, Marsh will review it. He’ll be honest about whether it covers your damages or not. If it’s too low, he’ll fight for more.

We’ll Be Prepared for Court

Most cases don’t need to go through a trial, but Troy Marsh believes in being trial-ready. His decades of litigation experience have taught him that going to court is helpful even when it’s not necessary. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can give you access to more evidence and force the insurer to take your case seriously.

By filing a lawsuit and going through the discovery process you get access to evidence that otherwise wouldn’t be available. When large insurance companies are forced to hand over documents and contend with an attorney who is prepared to fight, it strengthens your claim and gives you an edge.

Back and Spine Injury Claims FAQs

It’s not uncommon for lower back pain to worsen in the days or weeks after an accident. Even if you saw a doctor right away, you might not have known you had a back injury. But over time, a herniated disc or another injury could be aggravated and cause pain, discomfort, and reduced mobility. We highly recommend you keep track of your symptoms and see a doctor right away.

Back and spinal injuries are particularly challenging because it can be impossible to predict how much you’ll recover and when. Also, a doctor may start with conservative treatments. If they don’t work after several months, you might need more aggressive treatment. That’s why it’s important not to accept a settlement offer right away. You need time to see what type of recovery you can expect. We will work with your doctors and medical experts to estimate your recovery, medical needs, and future medical expenses.

Generally, you have two years from the date of your crash to file a tort personal injury lawsuit. Various factors could give you more or much less time, though, so it’s important to talk with an experienced back injury lawyer.
