Back Injury After An Accident? We Can Help.

It's important to realize that motor vehicle accidents often result in back or neck injuries. Soft-tissue injuries are not always accurately diagnosed or treated properly. These kinds of injuries may produce physical problems and symptoms that are not immediately apparent.

A soft-tissue injury, for instance, unlike an obvious fracture or other traumatic injury, can produce pain or physical restrictions that may seem to be part of the healing process. But instead of getting better, things get progressively worse over weeks or months.

More Than 30 Years Of Experience On Your Side

The attorneys at The Copeland Law Firm have handled back injury cases in Columbia and throughout Missouri for the past 30 years. We know how back injuries can impact your life — the immediate impact as well as the long-term complications. We are well-prepared, trained, and committed to helping you with both your initial recovery and your financial well-being in the long term. We will continually monitor your treatment and convalescence to ensure that your diagnosis and treatment are correct.

Insurance adjusters know this can happen and try to limit their costs in these types of cases. If you have suffered a back injury in a car or truck accident, it is important that you protect your rights and ability to recover optimally by reaching out to a lawyer who can help you take smart steps, both legally and medically.

We assemble and present solid proof of a neck or back injury for which the victim might otherwise not be compensated. Insurance companies are seldom willing to pay these claims until they are forced to, but we have repeatedly and demonstrably overcome their objections in settlement and court. That is where our reputation and experience help get the fastest possible resolutions. We are ready to do the same in your case.

Helping You Find The Best Path To Recovery

All types of car accidents and other motor vehicle or commercial vehicle accidents can cause back injury. It is important to note that even in low-speed accidents — with rear-end collisions being a leading culprit — it is relatively easy to misdiagnose a herniated disk or severe whiplash as a mere sprain or strain of the neck.

That is why you need trusted advocates on your side after being injured in an accident. We will look out for your best interests and try to find you the best path to recovery so you can move on with your life.
