Back And Neck Injuries

Florida Back and Neck Injury Lawyers

Do you have Back and Neck Injuries? The most common physical ailments we see in auto-accident or motorcycle related claims are neck and back injuries. Discogenic (relating to a disc injury) pathology in the cervical (neck), thoracic (upper back) and lumbar (mid-back to the tailbone) are the most basic injuries. As a Florida personal injury attorney, I know all too well that the insurance carriers recycle the same tired defenses in practically every neck and back injury case.

How Florida Insurance Carriers Combat Back and Neck Injury Claims

Insurance carriers are adept at handling neck and back injury claims as they are so commonly filed. Thus it is important that your attorney understands the lay of the landscape. We comprehend which physicians enjoy strong reputations with the various insurance carriers and who is looked at with scrutiny. Further, we strongly comprehend the most common defenses to neck and back injury claims. In specific, we have garnered tremendous experience and great success in handling and litigating Minor Impact Soft Tissue (MIST) claims. When a car wreck occurs and the property damage is less than $2,000.00, the insurance carriers will generally red flag the case as a "minor impact." Many attorneys simply do a disservice to their respective clients by settling such claims for pennies on the dollar.

As a Florida personal injury attorney, I have seen the tremendous hurdles that the plaintiff attorney and the plaintiff in general face with each and every claim, especially those related to a minor impact soft tissue injury. Florida is a hotbed for tort reform and this has in turn created a hostile environment for plaintiffs who are victims of an auto or motorcycle accident. The jury pool is already skeptical of plaintiffs due to the propaganda they are constantly fed by the insurance carriers and their respective lobbyists who continually bellyache that injury victims are more often than not embellishing their injuries and seek medical care for pecuniary benefits as opposed to meritorious reasons. The insurance carrier will argue that it is impossible for you to have sustained a serious neck or back injury from such a minor impact. However, there are numerous studies which indicate there is no clear relationship between property damage and physical injury and the few that do, fail to account for the infinite number of variables which can effect whether a person is injured in any particular accident. (Not to mention that these "no injury" studies are typically insurance industry funded.) Also, it is well known that the average automobile crash of 5 miles per hour exerts 50,000 pounds of force. We believe 50,000 pounds of force to be significant.
