Neck Injury, Crushed Vertebrae and Other Back Injury

After headaches, back pain is one of the most common symptoms that doctors hear about from their patients. Back and neck injuries may be the result of poor posture, a too-soft mattress, or inadequate support in your shoes. However, if your neck injury or back injury is the result of an accident caused by another person, you may be able to receive compensation to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, and other losses.

  • If you suffered a back injury, neck injury or spine injury in an accident, before you talk to an insurance adjuster or anyone else, talk to us. Insurance companies will do everything they can to pay as little compensation as possible for your claim, even denying your claim after your doctor confirms your injury.
  • We work closely with a team of medical experts and back and neck injury specialists to confirm your injuries and help determine your short-term and long-term medical needs.
  • Back and neck injuries commonly happen in auto accidents, construction accidents, and premises liability, particularly in slip and fall incidences. Common injuries include crushed vertebrae, herniated disk, bruised spine, and muscle sprain and strain.
  • As a former Contra Costa County prosecutor, Joe is an experienced negotiator and trial attorney with the skill and resources needed to prove your injury claim and determine liability and fault.

    Client Testimonials

    We settled my case on the first day of trial. The insurance company had made horrible offers up and until that point, and they fought Joe every step of the way. Joe was never deterred and was obviously in control of the case and the court proceedings. It was easy to see that he is well liked by the judges, court staff and other attorneys in the courthouse. Joe was attentive to me, he truly cared about me and my case and he made the experience painless and comfortable for me. My outcome was very good, and I am set for life. I highly recommend Joe.



    I tried to handle my claim with the insurance company for some time. I gave them all the information they wanted and in the end the made a very low, insulting offer. I was referred to Joe by a good friend who is a retired police officer, who told me Joe was a former prosecutor and a very good trial attorney. When we met, I liked him immediately. He isn’t the typical egotistical, flashy lawyer, he is modest and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. In the end, the case resolved at several times the original offer given to me. The other thing that impressed me about Joe is that he has never collected more in attorney’s fees than his clients, which I know other attorneys cannot promise their clients.



    The jury gave me over two million dollars in a trucking accident that injured my neck and back. Joe is a very polished and effective trial attorney. His closing argument was incredible and the judge seemed to like it also. The jury loved him and the verdict reflected that.
