What Happens After a Neck & Back Injury Diagnosis?

Neck & Back Injury Attorney Indianapolis

Neck & Back Injury is an injury to the soft tissues of the neck. Although people typically associate it with car accidents (particularly rear-end collisions), any injury that causes the head to snap quickly backward and forward can result in Neck & Back Injury. While the most common symptom associated with Neck & Back Injury is neck pain, it can cause other serious symptoms, including headaches, reduced range of motion, weakness, tingling, numbness, and shoulder pain, just to name a few.

 

If doctors diagnosed you with Neck & Back Injury after an accident, you probably have a lot of questions about what will happen next. Things that typically take place after a Neck & Back Injury diagnosis follow below. For more information, call our office today to speak with an Indianapolis personal injury lawyer.

You Will Receive a Treatment Plan

You will probably receive a treatment plan for your Neck & Back Injury diagnosis. The treatments you receive will depend on the severity of your injury and can range from simple pain management techniques such as over-the-counter medication to surgeries. Generally, treatment plans start with the most conservative treatments appropriate to an injury and escalate to more aggressive treatments if the initial treatments do not work.

An Attorney Will Determine Whether You May Hold Someone Else Liable

After determining that you sustained Neck & Back Injury, review the facts of your case with an attorney. If your lawyer determines that someone else’s negligence caused your accident, you may recover compensation for the losses you sustained. People without legal training may not recognize negligence, so always review your case with an attorney after a Neck & Back Injury diagnosis—even if you think the accident was unavoidable or your fault.

Filing a Claim With the At-Fault Party’s Insurance Company

If the negligence of another person caused your Neck & Back Injury diagnosis, you might file an insurance claim. Typically, an insurance claim will result in a settlement that will take into account your economic and non-economic losses, such as your medical expenses, lost income, lost quality of life, property damage, and physical and emotional pain and suffering. Because victims without experience and training in personal injury law may not accurately calculate all of those expenses, hire an experienced attorney to assist you during the negotiation stage. In addition, if the insurance company refuses to settle your case for an appropriate sum, your lawyer may file a lawsuit to ensure that you recover compensation for your losses.
