The Arizona Department of Health and Safety publishes a number of reports on topics related to neck and back injuries in Arizona. Neck and back injuries are common among car accident victims and employees that spend a great deal of time sitting in front of their computer. The most recent Arizona neck and back injury statistics were published in 2012.
For every 100,000 full-time employees, 2,290 suffered musculoskeletal back injuries in Arizona. These back injuries can develop over time – due to poor seating and layout of workspace. They can also be caused by construction accidents where a heavy, substantial object falls or breaks loose and hits a worker. Improving workplace safety is a key factor in reducing neck and back injuries in Arizona.
Neck injuries in Arizona are most commonly associated with car and truck accidents. Whiplash can compound injuries from even the most minor of accidents. Neck injuries sustained during car accidents can also be compounded by head injuries (i.e. traumatic brain injuries). It’s important to seek qualified medical attention after an accident causing a neck or back injury.
Neck and back injuries involve the spine, which is responsible for passing neurological impulses from your brain to the rest of your body. A spinal injury can lead to full or partial paralysis. Both Phoenix and Tucson boast excellent medical centers that specialize in neck and spinal injury. This is good news for our clients that are hurt in an accident in Phoenix or Tucson, Arizona.
If your family is facing the prospect of helping a loved one recover from a neck or back injury, it’s important to understand how important comprehensive medical care is to achieving the best possible recovery. A minor neck or back injury, if left untreated, can easily be compounded with time. The end result could be loss of mobility, up to and including total paralysis.
Minor back injuries, like strains or muscle spasms, can be treated with bed rest. Most injured parties require additional guidance on best practices to avoid aggravating the injury. But the good news is most employees can eventually return to work and resume their lifestyle.
Major back and neck injuries, such as slipped discs or severe whiplash, will require extensive medical examination and ongoing treatment. Unfortunately, many accident victims choose to accept an offer from insurance companies, employers or negligent individuals responsible for their accident in return for fast cash. The high-pressure tactics that insurance companies use, when combined with mounting medical bills can be enough to get a neck or back injury victim to sign on the dotted line.
Sadly, these agreements rarely pay out anything close to the full amount that a victim may be entitled to under Arizona personal injury law. Insurance companies want to deliver a profit to their shareholders – they do not hold your family’s best interests at heart. The faster they can close your case, and the lower the total amount they can pay out, the happier they are.
Personal injury victims that accept the initial payout are usually left struggling to pay for ongoing care after their cash payout dries up.
