Neck, Back and Brain Injuries

NECK, BACK AND BRAIN INJURY ATTORNEY

Neck and spine injuries are two of the most common types of accident related injuries and also two of the most severe. After seeking medical help, contact Peter David Brown. He can investigate your case and help determine if your injuries are accident related and compensable.

Peter Brown has handled neck, spine and closed head injury matters since 1988. Peter worked as an insurance defense attorney, representing the insurance companies in their defense of injury claims. Let Peter put that experience “on the other side of the fence” to work for you. If you have a loved one who has suffered a traumatic brain injury, please contact us today.

Many times neck and back injuries are the outcome of car accidents, boating accidents, falls and occupational accidents such as heavy lifting. If they are the result of another person’s negligence, you might be able to recover for your injuries. Please call us so that we may evaluate your incident to see if it is compensable. Our number is (843) 971-0099. There is no charge for this consultation.

Neck and back injuries can include herniated or ruptured disks caused by damage to the padding between vertebras. Herniated and ruptured disks are often the result of sudden impact accidents, like being hit by a car.

Whiplash is another severe injury to the neck and back caused by an overextension of the neck.

Compressive fractures caused by trauma often include bone breaks and vertebra breaks. More extreme accidents can cause paralysis, resulting in life altering repercussions like reduced quality of life, loss of employment and substantial funds which will be needed to afford future medical care.

When faced with mounting medical bills associated with this type of injury, Peter David Brown will work toward getting you the compensation you are entitled. If your injury was work related, we can guide you through the workers’ compensation claims process. We can help you get your benefits started and receive the quality medical care your injury requires. We will explain the claims process to you and keep you moving forward. We will deal with the adjusters from the insurance carrier, so that you can concentrate on recovering from your injury.

Spinal cord and brain injuries are some of the most serious types of injuries. Although most spinal cord injuries are treatable, some nevertheless result in permanent disability and paralysis. Immediate and specialized medical care is often required. Let us help get you to the best medical specialists who can treat you effectively.

The symptoms of a spinal cord injury can be apparent immediately after an incident or they can slowly develop after a period of time. Some of the general symptoms of a spinal cord injury are:

  • Extreme pain or stinging in the back or neck area
  • Numbness or tingling in the hands or feet
  • Loss of movement, paralysis or weakness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Loss of sensation
  • Loss of bowel or bladder control

A spinal cord injury can be very emotional and overwhelming for everyone in the family. The treatment should be immediate in order to prevent any long term effects from the injury. Let us help you put together a course of medical treatment to deal with this potentially catastrophic situation as quickly and effectively as possible.

LET US HELP FROM THE VERY BEGINNING OF YOUR CLAIM

When you or a loved one has been seriously injured, the last thing you want to do is deal with any insurance company. This is the time when you are distracted and vulnerable. They have you at a disadvantage and they know it. Insurance companies have trained adjusters who are immediately investigating the claim in an effort to protect the insurance company and limit their exposure. They will be photographing the scene, interviewing witnesses, taking statements and maybe even contacting you in order to take your statement. The last thing they want is for you to hire an attorney who knows how to protect your interests!

THIS IS WHEN YOU NEED US THE MOST! LET US HELP!

You need an experienced personal injury attorney to lift the burden from your shoulders so that you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries and getting your family’s life back to normal. Let us relieve your stress and deal with the insurance company. We can help organize the mounting medical bills from the emergency room, the specialists, any related surgery and the potentially lengthy term of rehabilitation and recovery.

We will diligently investigate your claim and help you with the smaller, nagging aspects of a claim while you or your loved one focuses on recovering from their injuries. Insurance companies are huge corporations who make millions of dollars settling claims quickly for as little as possible. You need to level the playing field and hire a law firm that routinely handles personal injury claims.

If your injury resulted from an automobile accident, please do not give a recorded statement or discuss the facts surrounding the auto accident with the other driver’s insurance company. (Often times that insurance company might also be the same as your insurance company, which can also work against you.) Certainly do not discuss your injuries, as the more serious injuries may not become apparent until several days, weeks or even months after the original swelling, bruising and more obvious “surface symptoms” subside. A statement professing to “only be sore” may come back to haunt you if you require additional medical treatment.  It will surely make your case more difficult. Only a trained medical professional can properly evaluate your injuries. Let us help guide you through this difficult time and get you the treatment you need.
