Phoenix Back and Neck Injury Lawyers
Back and neck injuries are some of the most serious injuries you can sustain. Because both areas represent the nerve center of your body, an injury to either region can result in a host of health issues down the road. You may experience significant pain that lasts for weeks or months; at their worst, such injuries can leave you paralyzed.
If you are suffering from a back or neck injury due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to seek fair compensation to cover the cost of your medical care. Get in touch with The Husband & Wife Law Team right away by calling (602) 457-6222.
Even aches and pains that seem small can be signs that more serious symptoms will emerge. If you are feeling any kind of discomfort after an accident, you will want to talk to your doctor right away so they can assess your condition and refer you to the right specialist if necessary.

- Numbness or tingling in your leg(s)
- Felling stiff along your spine
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Any type of back ache
Common signs of neck injury include:
- Shoulder pain
- Numbness or tingling in your arm(s)

It’s essential to visit your doctor right away if you are experiencing any symptoms of back or neck injuries. Although you may only be suffering from a sprain, strain, or muscle spasms, serious injuries include:
Back and neck injuries can occur for any number of reasons, but the most common by far is car accidents. When you consider the many tons of steel in motion and the devastating forces involved, it makes sense that a serious crash would leave drivers and passengers with life-changing injuries. Slip and fall accidents, motorcycle accidents, boating accidents, and ATV accidents can also cause back and neck injuries.
Cervical spine injuries can result in quadriplegia, for instance, and several types of paralysis may result from damaged nerves and vertebrae in the spine. After an accident, your productivity and emotional life could suffer a permanent blow in a matter of milliseconds, making it essential to find the right person to act in your defense.
As soon as you have been involved in a car crash, call 911 and make sure any injured passengers are getting the medical attention they need. If possible, you will want to start collecting evidence right away. Exchange insurance information with all other drivers involved and get contact information from any witnesses. It’s also a good idea to use your cell phone to snap pictures of the accident site, personal injuries, and vehicle damage.
It's essential to contact a Phoenix car accident injury lawyer before you talk to any insurance agents. Your attorney will work with forensic and medical specialists to investigate the accident. Then your attorney will calculate the cost of your injuries, determine who is a fault, and file one or more claims on your behalf.
