NEW HAVEN BACK INJURY ATTORNEY
AFTER SUFFERING A SERIOUS BACK INJURY
It is common to experience a sore neck or back after a New Haven auto accident, slip-and-fall, or another accident. Many doctors prescribe pain relievers or muscle relaxants, and in most cases, the symptoms go away after a few days or weeks. Unfortunately, sometimes the victim suffers a serious injury such as a herniated disk or fractured vertebra.
If you have suffered a back or neck injury in an accident, hope for the best, but plan for the worst. It is important to obtain medical treatment and follow up with your doctor if you are not getting better. It is also important to contact the experienced attorneys at the LoRicco Law Firm. Our attorneys handle cases of serious injury in New Haven auto accidents and other types of negligence in New Haven and throughout the Connecticut Shoreline.

A serious back injury can change your life. For this reason, it’s important to continue medical treatment and seek legal advice.
