Personal Injury Compensation for Back and Neck Soft Tissue Injuries – Strains and Sprains – Following a Car Accident

The most common type of personal injury following a North Carolina car accident is a strain or sprain. These so-called soft tissue injuries can occur at any point along your spine but most frequently occur between your neck (cervical) and mid (thoracic) to lower back (lumbar). Very frequently these personal injuries do not cause immediate pain after the car accident. It can take a week or more for the pain to set in. The attorneys of Maginnis Law, PLLC are experienced in representing car accident personal injury clients with soft tissue injuries to their neck and back.

Neck and back strains and sprains are also sometimes called whiplash injuries, because they are caused by the violent whipping of one’s spine backward and forward upon the sudden stopping of your vehicle. The lawyers of Maginnis Law, PLLC are experienced in evaluating these whiplash injuries to determine if they have caused an activation of symptoms related to Degenerative Disc Disease (“DDD”). Nearly every adult has some level of DDD, and if a car accident activates the symptoms of your DDD which you did not previously have, you may be entitled to additional compensation.

Insurance adjusters frequently offer less than fair value for car accident neck and back strains and sprains. However, the adjusters are not the final say on your personal injury compensation. If Maginnis Law, PLLC is retained to represent your interests, and the insurance company refuses to offer fair compensation, we will aggressively litigate your claim all the way through trial if necessary. A jury, not an adjuster for the insurance company, will determine fair compensation for your car accident personal injury damages.
