    The neck and back are made up of bones, ligaments, muscles, blood vessels, and tissue. The impact of a car crash can cause a wide range of injuries that include:

    • Whiplash – sprains or strains to the muscles and ligaments
    • Back sprain or strain
    • Herniated disc – damage to the soft tissue between discs in the spinal column
    • Fractured vertebrae
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Lower back pain
    • Delayed back pain

    Recovery from a neck or back injury can take weeks, months, or years. Unfortunately, some people never fully recover. An injury to the neck or back may require surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy, and multiple doctor visits. Medical expenses can become overwhelming, and many families aren’t sure how they can pay them.

    Under Florida insurance laws, all drivers are required to carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection (PIP) coverage that will cover 80% of your medical expenses and 60% of your lost wages. If your medical expenses exceed $10,000, or if you suffered a permanent injury, you can take legal action.

    If another driver's negligence caused the accident that left you injured, you can seek financial compensation. For example, the driver may have been speeding, distracted, or driving under the influence of alcohol. You might think that when a driver was negligent, your claim would be straightforward.

    What is the average settlement for a back or neck injury?

    So, how much money can you expect for your neck or back injury? Unfortunately, there’s no set dollar amount. Some injury settlements are worth thousands. Others might be worth significantly more. You may also be eligible to receive additional money if you decide to file a back injury lawsuit, and a jury rules in your favor and awards you damages, a legal term for financial compensation.

    The bottom line is you should be financially compensated for all your injury-related expenses, now and in the future. If the at-fault party’s insurance company refuses to pay you the money you rightfully deserve for your car accident, your lawyer can fight for the compensation you’re legally entitled to receive if someone else clearly caused the crash that resulted in your neck or back injury.

    Building strong cases that get results

    Unfortunately, it’s usually not that simple. Negligent drivers typically deny doing anything wrong. They may not understand how they were negligent, or they are afraid of getting into trouble. Insurance companies will back them up because they are most interested in protecting their profits. So they’ll pay you as little as they possibly can.

    That’s why you need an experienced car accident lawyer in Central Florida who knows how to take on insurance companies. Our attorneys know how insurance companies operate and what it takes to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your neck or back injuries.

    Our legal team investigates your car crash to find out what really happened. We know where to look for evidence of negligence. Our team reviews accident reports and medical records, identifies and interviews witnesses, and consults accident reconstruction experts and other specialists if needed.

    Fighting for your rights

    We know how to build a strong case that proves that another driver's negligence caused the accident that hurt you. We also determine the total amount of damages you have suffered. This includes all medical expenses for treating your injuries – both now and in the future. It may include lost wages and other damages, such as pain and suffering.

    When insurance companies see that we have built a strong case and are ready to fight for your rights in court, they usually agree to talk about a settlement. We’re only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs. We have been helping clients get results for more than 30 years.

    If you suffered a neck or back injury in a car accident, it’s important to talk to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. We can start investigating your accident right away. Over time, evidence can be lost or destroyed, and witnesses' memories can fade. The sooner we can start on your case, the better.
