New Orleans Serious Back Injury Lawyers
Representing Clients in Ruston, The Big Easy & Beyond
Among the injuries that we encounter at The Burrell Firm, LLC, serious back injuries are one of the most common—and most severe. Serious back injuries often call for surgery, but there are sometimes other options.
Serious back injuries can include:
- Annular tears
- Compression fractures
- Degenerative disc diseases
- Disc bulges
- Disc herniations
- Facet arthropathy
- Spinal stenosis
Procedures short of surgery that provide relief include epidural steroid injections, facet joint injections, ablation/neurotomy, and spinal cord stimulators, among other things. In addition, serious back injuries can be very costly because they often require the assistance of a caretaker, extensive physical therapy, and continuous medical care.

What is the Average Payout for a Back Injury
Accident victims who have suffered serious back injuries are encouraged to file an injury claim against the at-fault individual if they didn’t cause their own injuries.

- Past, present, and future medical bills
- Past, present, and future pain and suffering
How Do You Know if Your Back Injury Is Serious?
Following an accident, it can be hard to isolate what pain is a result of which injuries.
