Back and Neck Injuries in Illinois

As a personal injury lawyer with more than 25 years of legal experience, I have represented many clients who have suffered back injuries and neck injuries.

  • Fractures and compression fractures
  • Lumbar and cervical spine injuries
  • Nerve and disc injuries
  • Lower back injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Bulging disc/herniated disc

To speak with me about a back or neck injury, call 708-633-6005.

Preexisting Back and Neck Injuries

Many people have preexisting back or neck injuries that are aggravated as a result of a car accident, slip and fall accident, or other personal injury. If you have been in an accident that has aggravated a preexisting condition, I can help.

The law allows a victim of a negligent act to receive compensation and damages for the aggravation of preexisting conditions. I have helped numerous clients with a preexisting condition recover financial compensation and damages for the aggravation of a preexisting condition.

What Makes Back Injuries Different

If you have suffered a back injury, it is important to understand that back injuries can be a long-term, extremely disabling, and even permanent. Often, back injuries require physical therapy, chiropractic care and other forms of rehabilitative therapy. In cases involving severe damage to the back, surgery may be necessary. And even then, the injury to the back may not completely heal.

I have represented hundreds of clients who have suffered moderate to severe back injuries. I know the intricacies of preparing and developing these cases, including dealing with the testimony and opinions of the doctors hired by insurance companies, all with a goal of obtaining full and fair compensation on behalf of my clients. If you have suffered a back injury or a neck injury, I encourage you to learn more about how I can help you.
