Spinal injuries can be deceptive. A victim who looks outwardly fine may be in constant pain. Initial, incomplete assessments may suggest an injury is minor, until later testing reveals a significant back or neck injury requiring surgery, physical therapy or extensive pain management.
At Monsees & Mayer, P.C., our Kansas City attorneys are attuned to the realities of back injury and neck injury claims. We work closely with clients to track medical treatment and fully document the hardships, losses and future needs. We know that some victims will never fully recover or work again, a reality reflected in our settlements and jury awards on behalf of clients.
We Take Spinal Injuries Seriously
We have represented victims of motor vehicle accidents, heavy machinery, construction site accidents, slip-and-falls, swimming pool injuries, and other events resulting in trauma to the spinal column. We excel at identifying the liable parties and holding them accountable.
Our personal injury lawyers are equipped for serious and catastrophic injuries, including:
- Spinal cord trauma and paralysis
- Vertebrae fracture
- Herniated disk or bulging disk
- Dislocation and subluxation
- Torn ligaments in the neck or back
Insurance adjusters often press for a fast settlement. It is important not to settle back and neck injury cases too early, before the full extent of injury and the prognosis for recovery are known. Will the victim need surgery? Physical therapy? A wheelchair? Will the person be able to return to his or her job?
Get The Result You Need And Deserve
Our attorneys pursue the full value of the case, through a process of documenting the medical, financial and personal impact on our clients and their families. We are prepared to take cases to trial, which gives us leverage in settlement talks to secure full compensation.
