Musculoskeletal Injury

Compensation for Disabling Injuries

The X-rays showed nothing. She appeared fine to the casual observer. But the internal injuries our client suffered in a car wreck essentially changed her 19-year-old body to that of a 55-year-old.

While that young woman may never fully recover from the chronic aches and loss of motion, I was able to prove that her injuries were real, and that they stemmed from the auto accident caused by another person's negligence.

If you or a family member has suffered substantial musculoskeletal injuries, contact John G. Rice, P.L.C. for compassionate legal advocacy in your pursuit of compensation. Based in Winchester, Kentucky we represent clients across central and eastern Kentucky.

30 Years of Medical and Legal Experience

Severe and catastrophic injuries take many forms. As a personal injury lawyer since 1985, I have helped hundreds of clients recover damages for obvious injuries such as loss of use of a limb, broken bones, multiple fractures, or disfigurement. However, I also have a proven record of securing compensation for subtle, hidden injuries. Soft-tissue injuries get a bad name, but I know from years of experience that they can be every bit as disabling.

In an auto or motorcycle accident, muscles, ligaments, and tendons are often stretched and twisted beyond their natural flexibility. The result is microscopic tears in blood vessels, nerves, membranes, and connective tissue. The nerves and fibers become entrapped in scar tissue as the body heals, resulting in chronic pain, reduced range of motion, nerve damage, loss of feeling, and/or loss of function. Like the 19-year-old girl, the body is aged prematurely by musculoskeletal injury. Simple tasks become difficult. Activities once enjoyed now seem impossible. Some victims cannot return to their jobs, or work at all.

Moving You Forward

At John G. Rice, P.L.C., we are dedicated to your physical, financial, and personal recovery. I think in terms of improving your life. If a physician or chiropractor says you'll never get better, I'll help you find a better doctor. In short, I want you to get better and use all my resources to secure the compensation that fuels your recovery.

I worked 12 years as a rehabilitation counselor before I transitioned to personal injury attorney. I have the technical medical knowledge and legal acumen to present your case to a jury or insurance company and demand your rightful damages. Whether your musculoskeletal damage is apparent or obscured, I will fight for you through mediation, negotiation, or litigation. I've handled many defense cases, too, so I know how to counter the inevitable arguments that you're "not that injured."
