Serious Legal Help For Those Who Have Suffered Devastating Back Injuries
The spinal column is central to just about every move we make. It is a complex network of bones, muscles, connective tissue and nerves, damage to any part of which can cause serious pain and mobility issues. If you suffered a back or spinal cord injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you both need and deserve an experienced legal representative fighting for you.
Throughout Illinois, you can find the help you’re looking for by contacting Anesi Ozmon, LTD. Our firm has been advocating for injury victims since 1955, and our team of attorneys has more than 200 years of combined legal experience. We understand the serious consequences of back injuries, and we work tirelessly to ensure that your settlement or jury award meets your needs and accurately reflects the harm you’ve suffered.
Back And Spine Injuries Can Happen Just About Anywhere
Our lawyers represent clients who have been injured in a wide variety of circumstances. Back injuries are a common element in most of those cases, including:
- Auto accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles and mass transit
- Bicyclists and pedestrians struck by motor vehicles
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
- Falls from height due to defective ladders or missing safety rails
- Workers injured on the job after regularly lifting boxes and other heavy items
- Assaults and criminal attacks due to inadequate security on private property
If you had an existing back injury before your accident (as many people do), the good news is that a preexisting injury does not disqualify you from compensation. If your existing injury was made worse by your accident, you likely still qualify for compensation in a personal injury or workers’ comp claim.
Types Of Back Injuries And Their Consequences
Considering how complex the spine is, it should come as no surprise that there are a considerable number of back injury diagnoses. A partial list includes:
- Herniated discs
- Lumbar sprains
- Spinal fractures
- Whiplash and other soft-tissue injuries
- Displaced vertebrae (spondylolisthesis)
- Thoracic spine injuries
- Partial or complete paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia)
The consequences of back injuries typically include chronic pain of varying intensity, loss of sensation, limited mobility or complete immobility. When these injuries can be treated, treatment may include hospitalization, extensive bed rest, intense physical therapy, surgery and use of pain medications. We can help you pursue compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, permanent disability and more.
