Serious Injuries To The Back And Neck

Alaskans are heavy lifters by nature — we work hard, play hard, and when we suffer injury by an act of negligence, we go down hard. When medical bills pile up, and we are unable to get up and go to work, it is often necessary to file a claim for financial compensation.

At the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider, assisting people with back and neck injuries to obtain compensation is an important part of our practice.

Injuries From Car Accidents, Slip And Falls And Dangerous Products

We have sought and obtained compensation for a wide variety of serious back injuries:

  • Spinal fractures, including compression fractures
  • Nerve damage
  • Injuries to the spinal cord, including paralysis
  • Slipped or herniated discs

Because chronic pain often accompanies serious back injuries, compensation for pain and suffering plays an important role in determining compensation levels.

Negotiating a settlement with insurance companies requires skill and assertiveness. Back injuries often qualify as catastrophic, requiring substantial compensation. You must not expect insurance company lawyers to have sympathy for your suffering. Their job is to minimize the amount of money you receive. To win your case, you need to work with a lawyer who is as determined, and as knowledgeable about the law.

If you are suffering from a back injury brought on by negligence, call the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider at 907-331-3549 to schedule a no-charge, no-obligation case evaluation — or email us a description of your injuries.
