Back and Neck Injuries and Back and neck pain are very common injuries following a car, truck or pedestrian accident.
ICBC and politicians often play down these injuries as somehow “in the head” of the victim or “only whiplash” injuries that resolve quickly without little harm to the victim.
At Dyson Law, we believe that your doctor, your lawyer and you are in a better position to properly assist you with your neck or back pain than ICBC or government politicians.
That doesn’t account for the fact that your injury and life situation is entirely unique.
At Dyson Law, we do not believe in a “one size fits all” response to your car accident injury. Common complications can make such seemingly “minor” injuries into very serious injuries for you.
There is Actual Structural Damage to the Spine
An MRI or bone scan can reveal damage to the spine such as fissured discs, bulging discs and/or facet joint arthropathy. Such injuries can last a lifetime and be incredibly disabling. There is nothing minor about them and our firm will ensure the system takes such injuries seriously.
Disc damage in the back/neck can impinge on nerves that can cause numbness, tingling or in the worse cases paralysis. Neurosurgery may be needed.
Neck and back pain often does not heal quickly and instead, causes pain, discomfort, and functional impairment for years. We take chronic pain seriously from ICBC car accidents and will help with them.
Missed or Damaged Work
Neck and back pain can interfere or prevent you from working as you did before. Working at a computer, engaging in physical labor, interacting with customers or concentrating on analytical problems can be disrupted by neck and back pain. We will connect you with the appropriate rehabilitation, vocational experts, occupational therapists, and medical professionals to help you.
Interference with Hobbies and Enjoyment of Life
Neck and back pain can prevent you from enjoying your favorite sports and hobbies. We have successfully represented golfers, musicians, mixed martial artists and ballroom dancers with their claims for pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
