Back injuries can be the source of debilitating pain. Unfortunately, they are also some of the most insidious injuries in that the resulting pain doesn't always present itself right away. If you've been involved in an accident and now have a back injury claim, do not settle with your insurance company yet!
Even if you're dealing with your own insurance company, you must keep in mind that they are a business. Paying out claims is what they try to avoid doing whenever possible. When it comes to back injuries, insurance adjusters are savvy about the kind of back injuries that come from particular accidents. They know that many injuries are low-impact, soft-tissue injuries that can be hard to assess immediately.
It's for this reason that your insurance company wants to settle with you quickly. Don't do it.

Let us be your advocate right from the start.
