What You Need to Know About Back Injuries

Many Kentucky attorneys won't go to bat for you if they feel your injuries aren't "serious enough." At James E. Bruce, Jr., Attorney at Law in Hopkinsville, we know that back and neck injuries can be just as debilitating and limiting as many other more "serious" injuries.

A Caring, Understanding Firm That Knows the System

With us you will work with a staff that truly cares about you, and who understands medical technology and diagnosis when it comes to back and neck injuries. We have the experience you need to pursue the compensation you need — including medical bills and lost wages — so that you can move forward toward a more complete recovery.

Get the Help You Need Before a Chronic Injury Sets in

Neck and back injuries may not seem severe or debilitating at first and many car accident victims try to "muscle through." Even if the damage to the vehicles was not severe, it does not mean that you did not suffer a potentially debilitating injury.

Undiagnosed or untreated neck or back injury can lead to:

  • Chronic pain and headaches
  • Decreased mobility and activity causing weight gain
  • Loss of feeling in the arms, legs and body
  • Loss of bowel and bladder function
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression and anxiety

An Attorney Can Help You Get More Compensation

If you were injured in a car accident, speak to an attorney who understands personal injury cases. Make sure you understand your rights. Studies done by the Insurance Research Council show that people who work with a personal injury attorney get more money in compensation for lost wages and for their injury. In fact, according to the Consumer Panel Survey of Auto Accident Victims, people represented by an attorney received 40 percent more in their settlement with the insurance company than people who did not use an attorney. While we do not guarantee how much you will receive, we can tell you that it is most likely to your benefit to work with an attorney.

When to Hire an Attorney

If you were injured in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence (drunk driving, texting while driving, reckless driving), it is in your best interest to consult with a personal injury attorney. Also, speak to an attorney if:

  • Your auto accident claim was denied
  • The at-fault driver has no insurance
  • You were offered a low or insufficient settlement
  • The insurance company is delaying the settlement
