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:

  • Aggravation
  • Annular tears
  • Compression fractures
  • Degenerative disc diseases
  • Disc bulges
  • Disc herniations
  • Facet arthropathy
  • Paralysis
  • 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.

To win the compensation you need to pay for your medical and other accident-related expenses related to a serious back injury, contact The Burrell Firm LLC today at (504) 420-7575 and request to speak with our back injury attorneys in New Orleans and Ruston.

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. If you or a loved one needs help after suffering a serious back injury caused by an accident, we can help you file an injury claim and will go to trial for you if needed.

By filing a claim, you may be able to receive monetary compensation for the following damages:

  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Lost wages from missed work
  • 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. It's important that you see a doctor after any major accident so that you can determine whether or not you have suffered a serious spinal or back injury. Symptoms of a serious back injury can include (but are not limited to):

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Experiencing numbness in any of your extremities
  • Blood your urine
  • Paralysis
