Get Compensation for Your Serious Injury
If you suffered a neck or back injury at work or in an accident, it's important to be patient and follow your doctor's treatment plan for your recovery. If you decide to stop treatment and tough it out, you could end up with chronic pain. In addition, the insurance company that is responsible for paying for your damages may decide that you are no longer injured and deny your claim.

Our Clinton personal injury lawyers handle cases of neck injuries and back injuries arising from auto accidents, truck accidents, work injuries,and more.

Why It's Important to Continue Treatment
Doctors often treat neck and back pain conservatively. Your doctor may begin by prescribing you muscle relaxers. If your pain continues, he or she may recommend physical therapy. Surgery is a last resort only if other forms of treatment are not successful.
Too often, people become discouraged when their pain does not go away. They may stop their treatment early or go to pain management clinics. Unfortunately, many pain management clinics are little more than pill dispensaries. You could end up becoming addicted to powerful painkillers such as OxyContin or oxycodone, which could lead to more serious problems than neck or back pain. This is yet another reason to be patient and follow your doctor's recommendations to the completion of your treatment.
If you were injured at work, you are entitled to free medical treatment from your employer's workers' compensation until your doctor releases you. If you think your doctor released you too early, our lawyers can help you seek a second medical opinion.
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, our Clinton personal injury lawyers can advise you about your options. Even if you do not have medical insurance, some doctors will provide you care in exchange for a lien on your personal injury claim.
