Back injuries can be caused by a single traumatic accident, or they can develop over time as the result of repetitive stress movements. Common causes of back injuries include workplace injuries, car accidents, slip and falls, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. If you were injured at work, or if someone else caused your accident and resulting injuries, you may have a claim for compensation.
The Colorado Springs back injury attorneys at The Fang Law Firm know that back injuries can range in severity, and they impact different people in different ways. Those suffering from back injuries may have chronic pain, limited range of movement, inability to stand or sit for long periods of time, sleep difficulties, disability, and paralysis.
Some back injuries are more straightforward to prove than others. For example, medical imaging can show that you are suffering from a herniated disc, spinal cord compression, or nerve impingement. In other cases, back injuries, such as soft tissue damage, sprains, and strains cannot be seen on an x-ray, but are diagnosed based on a medical evaluation of your symptoms.
Our attorneys regularly represent clients with back injuries, and they will gather the evidence necessary to prove that you were injured. Evidence used to prove your back injuries may include diagnostic reports, medical imaging, medical records, and medical evaluations.
If your back injuries are work-related, you might have a workers’ compensation claim against your employer’s insurance carrier. To succeed in your workers’ compensation claim, our back injury attorneys will prepare your case to demonstrate that you were injured, and those injuries were work-related. If your injuries were caused by someone else, we will gather the necessary evidence to prove that the defendant’s negligence caused your back injuries.
We take personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis so that our injured clients do not have to worry about legal fees while they are going through the legal process. Our back injury attorneys in Colorado Springs only collect compensation after they help you secure financial recovery through a settlement agreement or at trial.
We return all calls within 24 hours because we believe that there is nothing more important than client communication. We recognize that our clients have entrusted us with their legal matters, and they depend on our representation. Our injury attorneys in Colorado Springs offer personalized services and open communication throughout the legal process.
Some law firms will take on any case that they believe will financially benefit their firm. Our attorneys are selective about which cases they accept. They know that to provide high-quality legal representation, they must have time to dedicate undivided attention to every legal matter and every client.
You may have sustained back injuries before you were involved in an incident that exacerbated those injuries or caused new ones. You are not entitled to compensation for pre-existing back problems, but you can make a claim for a new or worsened condition. It may be necessary to use prior medical records and medical expert testimony to prove your claim.
If you have suffered back injuries that are work-related or caused by someone else’s negligence, we can help. Contact The Fang Law Firm to schedule a free consultation. Our Colorado Springs back injury attorneys are available to meet with you in person or over the phone to discuss your case.
