Treatment Of Severe Neck And Back injuries Caused By Auto Accidents

The Houston Auto Accident Attorneys at DeSimone Law Office  started a discussion about how neck and back injuries are the most common type of injury from a car accident.  We discussed how physical therapy will work for strained muscles in the neck and back but not for more serious injuries like herniated discs in the neck and back.  We showed that a test called an MRI would show if an injured party had a herniated disc in his neck and back which normally would require more than physical therapy to treat. The injured party’s personal injury claim will then probably have to include some type of surgical procedure.  If a MRI shows a herniated disc the injured party will then be referred to an orthopedic specialist.  That specialist will probably recommend steroid injections into the spine to relieve the injuured party’s pain. When a disc is herniated in the back or neck it is impinging on the nerves that run along the spine causing the injured party pain. The steroid injection can reduce the swelling in the nerve that is causing the pain and thus give the injured party relief.  These injections are given in sets of up to three. If after three injections the injured party is still hurting, then the next step may be surgery in the neck or back.  Needless to say the other party’s insurance company will do everything they can to not have to pay for these expensive surgeries.  A lawsuit will have to be filed more often than not to get the client the monies to which he or she is entitled for his insurance claim.

If you have suffered a neck or back injury in a traffic accident, call the lawyers at DeSimone Law Office.  They will make sure you get the medical treatment and monies you deserve.
