Orlando Back Injury Attorneys

Shoulder X-RayA back injury can be very serious and have lasting physical and financial effects. A significant trauma can cause various types of back injuries from whiplash to spinal cord injury. Back injuries affect hard and soft tissues and even your spinal cord. If you have experienced a back injury and you live in the Orlando, FL area, the Law Offices of James O. Cunningham, P.A. is ready to stand up for you.

Back injuries can occur over a long period, such as from repetitive heavy lifting, or from an isolated incident like a fall. Accidents capable of causing serious damage to your back and spine can occur just about anywhere. At work, an improperly secured ladder may lead to a fall. In a car, a drunk driver can cause a devastating accident. No matter where your injury occurred, if the negligence of someone else caused it, secure the best personal injury legal team to hold him or her accountable.

Spinal intervertebral discs are like cushions between each bone up and down your back. A major blow to your back can damage or dislodge these discs. Herniated discs can also press against the spinal cord and cause secondary problems.

Whiplash is a soft tissue injury to the muscles and tendons in the neck that support your head. We call it whiplash because it occurs when your body stops, but your head does not, and the momentum causes your head to move the way a whip cracks. This action pulls the muscles and tendons beyond their limit and damages these tissues.

Back injury may require surgery and often requires pain management techniques over the long term. This may be as simple as a regimen of over the counter pain relievers, or it could include physical therapy, prescription pain medication and steroidal pain management injections.
