Legal Scaleswis-injury.com is your source for information on personal injury, liability, insurance and compensation. There has been a traumatic event, usually an accident, medical bills are mounting, you or your loved one are no longer the same as they were before. Is there compensation available?


In most neck, back and spinal cord injury cases, the injury occurs because of rapid change in speed of the head and torso in an accident. Lifting is also a substantial cause of injuries to the back, although change in speed is sometimes a factor in even these cases. These change in speed cases are called acceleration/deceleration injuries, or more commonly, whiplash.

Neck and back injuries can generally be classified into four types: 1. Those involving direct injury to the spinal cord, 2. Those involving broken bones, 3. Those involving disk injury and 4. Those involving soft tissue injury. Clearly the most severe are those involving injury to the spinal cord as they often involve paralysis or death. Broken bones may often injure the spinal cord, making them potentially severe as well, but not all broken bones in the spine include spinal cord involvement. Disk injuries are more typically associated with injury or damage to nerve routes, which run off of the spinal cord and often involve radiculapathy, pain, numbness of tingling affecting the extremities such as arms or legs. Soft tissue injuries, which involve less risk of secondary injury, are the most common, and can be as minor as a simple sprain which clears up in a day or two, or may be permanent. In some cases, soft tissue injury may restrict activity to the point that a person is permanently disabled as a result.
