We Understand Back And Neck Injury Claims

It is easy to take our health for granted; easy, that is, until we sustain a serious injury.

Injuries to the back and the neck are among the most debilitating and painful. These injuries can cause pain to shoot through your body at uncertain times. They can cause weakness, numbness and a host of other problems.

If you or a loved one has suffered a back or neck injury at work, in a car accident or by some other form of negligence, it is important to speak to a lawyer.

For more than 50 years, we at Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., have powerfully advocated for people with severe injuries. We are based in Manhattan, and we represent injured people throughout New York City and beyond.

Helping People Get The Money They Need, Now And In The Future

Neck and back injuries are especially damaging to a person's overall well-being in many ways. A serious back or neck injury can limit the work you are able to perform, or keep you out of the job market altogether.

At Arye, Lustig & Sassower, P.C., we have particular experience serving people who have sustained serious neck and back injuries in construction accidents, motor vehicle accidents and other accidents. Our attorneys understand that it is important not only to get money for your injuries now, but for future care and lost earnings. The results below are just some of our verdicts and settlements.
