Serious Blow to the Spine? You could be looking at a serious back related problem.
Back injuries can occur in a number of different ways but generally follow a serious blow or sudden impact to the spine. This can occur due to:
- An auto accident or other motor vehicle accident
- Slip and fall accidents
- Trampoline and swimming pool spills
- Work related accidents
- Construction accidents
You may not notice your back injury right away. Constant heavy lifting or continuous movement to your spine can result in long term damage to your back. This can be the result of constantly picking up heavy parcels or even driving a large piece of machinery. Even if you think that you have escaped the accident unscathed, your back may start acting up days or even weeks down the road.
Living with a back injury? There is something you can do about it.
Back pain is one of the leading complaints of people injured in car accidents and at the workplace. However, this does not mean you should simply live with the anguish your injury is causing. Back injuries can be minor or major and include:
- Chronic or acute back pain
- Permanent paralysis or numbness
- Muscle weakness
- Lack of coordination
- Tingling in your limbs
- Fractures of the spine
- Herniated, slipped or ruptured discs
- Soft tissue injuries
- Facet joint complications
- Spinal stenosis
Should I File a Lawsuit?
This depends on the situation. If your back injury has been caused by someone else’s negligence or mistreatment, then you may have a case. This includes negligence from an individual, from a company, from a manufacturer or even from a building manager.
Filing a lawsuit can help you recover damages from:
- Medications, surgeries, specialist visits and equipment
- Loss of income
- Rehabilitation and therapy costs
- Loss of quality of life
- Other damages
It is important that all sufferers know that they do have options. While you may think that your insurance agency or workers’ compensation will handle the claim, this is rarely the case and you will probably be left with several bills and out of pocket expenses.
