Neck & Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries vary greatly in severity and complexity.

If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to see a physician to document your injuries and obtain medical treatment as soon as possible. It is also important to contact a lawyer to help you submit your claim to ICBC and ensure you receive a fair amount based on your unique circumstances and the facts surrounding your case.

Under the new injury compensation laws that apply to accidents effective April 1, 2019, many neck and back injuries many be considered “minor injuries.” It is critical for accident victims that have suffered a neck or back injury to get a proper diagnosis and necessary treatment in order to protect, not just their health, but their injury claim.

Navigating the legal process on your own is complex and can be stressful. Involving an ICBC claims assistance lawyer from the beginning will ensure all deadlines are met and that you fully understand the claims process from start to finish. A Spraggs Law lawyer in the Lower Maindland can evaluate your situation and work on your behalf to obtain fair and reasonable compensation for your injuries.
