In the majority of car accident cases in New Orleans and throughout the United States, the most common injury is either a back or neck injury. At The Glorioso Law Firm, our attorney’s refer to these as spine injuries and have handled thousands of these types of cases. A spine injury can be minor or severe. A minor injury to your back or neck may be as simple as a sprain or strain which can heal in several months or it may turn into something more serious which may take years to resolve. Often times, neck and back injuries are caused by the trauma involved in a car accident often referred to as a whiplash injury. This type of injury can cause bulging or herniated disc in your spine which may result in the need for surgery, including epidural steroid injections or fusion surgery. Symptoms of a herniated disc may include: foot numbness, hand numbness or leg numbness. Car accidents and other incidents can also cause facet joint injuries which are also often overlooked by medical doctors. A facet joint injury can cause pain at the joints between your vertebrae.
