Many individuals suffer from minor neck and back pain. However, some spinal injuries can be very serious, chronic and sometimes even permanently disabling. The attorneys at the law firm of Brais Law Firm with offices in Miami, Florida, Boston, Massachusetts and Houston, Texas realize a lawyer’s job is to help clients on their road to recovery.

Spinal injuries are typically caused when there has been a trauma causing a serious injury or irritation to the complex structures of the back or neck. Most spinal injuries are the result of trauma caused by traffic accidents, with soft tissue injuries being the most common. Yet, spinal injuries can also result from falls, sports, work accidents, and defective products.

Typical types of spinal injuries include: compression fractures, herniated, ruptured, or slipped disks, connective tissue injuries, whiplash, and spinal cord injuries. Tenderness, stiffness or spasms in the muscles of the neck and back, as well as headaches, dizziness, nausea, vision impairment and memory difficulty can be symptoms of a back or neck injury. Pain, tingling, numbness, or paralysis of an extremity can indicate that a more severe injury has occurred and immediate treatment should be sought from a medical professional. Treatment of spinal injuries can involve physical therapy and medication to surgical intervention. Some surgeries remove the offending inter vertebral disc material, while others are more complex and involve bone fusion and instruments screwed into vertebral bodies.

When spinal injuries occur, they can cause severe physical as well as emotional hardships for the individual. Not only may there be extreme pain, there can be extensive medical bills, stress due to an inability to perform necessary day-to-day tasks, limited ability to work, and loss of wages due to missed work.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.

I was looking to refer a client injured on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of speaking to Keith. Keith was extremely helpful and he took time out of his day to provide some guidance. If you're looking for a Admiralty & Maritime /Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida, I would highly recommend Brais Law Firm! T.C.
