When an accident results in head or back injuries, it is especially important to seek legal representation from a personal injury attorney with extensive experience negotiating settlements for accident victims with head or back injuries.
Head and back injuries present unique medical issues, and they often require long-term rehabilitative therapy before the victim of the head or back injuries can regain normal function. In the most serious cases of head or back injuries, the victim cannot, in fact, regain full pre-accident function.
For over 35 years, the Christensen Law Offices in Deadwood, South Dakota, has offered compassionate and thorough legal representation to accident victims in Western South Dakota and throughout the United States. We have significant experience representing accident victims suffering from a wide range of head, back and shoulder injuries:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Cervical sprains, or back sprains
- Herniated or ruptured discs
- Discogenic back pain
- Bulging discs
- Spinal fractures or other spinal cord injuries
- Neck sprains
- Partial paralysis, or paraplegia
- Full paralysis, or quadriplegia
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) — mild, moderate or severe
- Closed head injury
- Temporary or permanent brain damage
Thorough analysis of the accident victim’s current and future medical needs is essential in all cases involving head or back injuries. This is true no matter how these injuries occur:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Snowmobile or ATV accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Workplace accidents
Our office works closely with medical experts, rehabilitation specialists and life care planners to construct a financial demand that accounts for all medical and rehabilitative needs our client will have as a result of the head or back injuries. The personal injury settlement (or workers’ compensation claim) is your sole opportunity to get a financial recovery that will cover all your needs as a result of the accident that caused your injuries.
At the Christensen Law Offices, we treat our clients and their families with extreme compassion. At the same time, we take a tough negotiating stance to help our clients get the financial settlement they deserve after an accident causing head or back injuries.
We handle all personal injury cases on a contingency fee basis. You pay no attorney’s fees unless we recover for you.
