Head, Neck, & Back Injuries
There's Too Much at Stake

Have you noticed a loss of physical sensation since an accident? Have you experienced frequent headaches or a stiff neck? It may be something simple that will just go away with time, or it could be a serious spinal cord injury. That brings us to the real question — is it worth the risk to not see a doctor and hire an attorney?

The symptoms and severity of an injury aren’t always evident immediately following an accident. Head, neck, and back injuries are especially sneaky. What may seem, at first, to be minor aches and pains could turn out to be much more severe over time. That’s why it’s extremely important to get checked out by a medical professional as soon as possible.

The most frequent causes of head and neck injuries are rear-end car accidents, however there are many types of accidents that can cause a head, neck, back, or spinal cord injury. Motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian accidents often result in these types of injuries, as do contact sports injuries, and even physical altercations and assault.


Medical expenses can be astronomical, and if you’ve been hurt as a result of someone else’s negligence, you’re entitled to compensation. Once your injuries have been diagnosed, you’ll need legal representation. Attorney

Head, neck, and back injuries are serious for several reasons

  • Scope of injuries isn't always immediately apparent
  • Severity can increase over time
  • Symptoms can be extremely severe, including paralysis or death

We were so lucky to find Lance Youd as our attorney after our motorcycle/car accident in 2005 (and again in ’09). An uninsured driver caused us to crash our motorcycle and fled the scene. Our motorcycle was totaled and I spent a week in the hospital. The driver of the car had been drinking. Lance made sure that our insurance company covered us since we had “full coverage” auto insurance on our motorcycle. If not for Lance, we wouldn’t have gotten the hospital bills paid or the value of our motorcycle replacement. THANK YOU LANCE!
