Following a motorcycle accident, many bikers suffer from neck or back pain. After an accident of any kind it is very important to seek medical treatment. A specialist, such as a neurologist or orthopedic surgeon can determine the severity of your neck and back injuries and provide you with the proper medical care. Common neck and back injuries after a motorcycle accident may include the following:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Disc Bulge
- Disc Herniation
- Soft-Tissue Neck or Back Injury
- Pain to the Cervical, Thoracic or Lumbar Region
Any of these symptoms may reveal that you have a neck or back injury:
- Constant pain or spasms
- Numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, fingers or toes
- Radiating pain to one side of the body
After a motorcycle accident victim suffers a spinal cord injury, it is not uncommon to experience permanent paralysis. The degree of paralysis will depend on the area that the spine was injured. Quadriplegia is when the spinal cord is damaged in the neck area, resulting in paralysis of all four limbs. Paraplegia occurs when the spinal cord is damaged below the neck, resulting in some degree of paralysis to the abdomen and both legs. Sadly, anyone that has suffered paralysis from a spinal cord injury will require long-term or even life-long care. By contacting a Florida Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyer at Whittel & Melton, you can ensure that you receive the appropriate and necessary medical treatment both now and in the future.
While insurance companies and their claims representatives may seem friendly and ready to help you, do not be fooled, their primary objective is to run a profitable business. Many times, they do not offer fair compensation to motorcycle accident victims, especially when victims are vulnerable or unrepresented.
