9news.com reports on the fact that winter is a busy time for emergency rooms. Of course, it makes perfect sense that accidents are likely to result as snow and ice accumulate on roads, sidewalks, and parking lots. An emergency doctor who was interviewed by 9 News indicated that the most common weather-related injuries that are seen in the ER are neck and back injuries. He went on to say that injuries to major joints like the wrists, hips, shoulders and knees, and of course frostbite are also very commonly seen weather-related conditions.

Have you or a loved one suffered a spinal injury in a fall on the ice or a car accident? Speak with an experienced Denver spinal injury lawyer immediately.

The high rate of neck and back injuries is extremely serious. Spinal injuries to the neck and back are major injuries that can have permanent effects, often requiring regular long-term treatment, even potentially including multiple surgical procedures. According to data provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 70% of spinal injuries are caused by car accidents or falls. Between 12,000 and 20,000 people suffer spinal cord injuries each year. Even relatively mild spinal injuries can result in lifelong complications.

If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal injury, be sure get the best medical care possible. The potential effects of spinal injury can be devastating, and you should never take risks with your spine. If you believe that the accident that caused your injury was the result of someone else’s negligence, contact a dedicated Denver spine injury lawyer as soon as possible.
