A back injury is the most common cause of back pain and typically involve either injury to the muscle and tendons or injury to the spinal column. Most back injuries occur in either the cervical region (the uppermost seven vertebrae of the neck) or the lumbar region (the five largest and strongest vertebrae in the lower back), and are typically the result of a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or slip-and-fall accident.
There are many types of back injuries, including:
- Herniated disk
- Crushed vertebrae
- Lower back injury
- Torn ligaments
- Fractured spine
A back injury can be life-altering, leading to chronic or acute pain as well as muscle weakness, lack of muscle coordination, numbness and /or tingling in the extremities.
Complications can arise when an injury fails to heal properly or when damage involves the permanent loss of mobility. In both cases, quality of life is impacted as injury victims may be unable to do the things they normally do.
Making a spinal cord injury claim is a complex and anxiety-producing process. Back injury claims are involved and can take a long time to resolve. When evaluating back injury cases, an experienced back injury attorney well-versed in back injury law is required to emphasize the catastrophic nature of the client’s injury with the full understanding of the medical issues, the improvements in rehabilitative medicine, increased mortality and need for future care both medically and emotionally.
