Back injuries are remarkably common, and can range from the uncomfortable to the permanently debilitating. The type and severity of back injuries can range from minor muscle soreness to paralysis.
The back is a complicated and delicately balanced area, which makes it particularly susceptible to injury during trauma. Particularly in a situation such as a motor vehicle accident, a fall, or a construction injury, the back can be injured severely and even permanently. Some common severe back injuries include:
- Herniated or slipped disks
- Spinal cord damage
- Compression fractures
Recovery from a severe injury such as those listed above and others is frequently an expensive and prolonged process, involving multiple treatments, physical therapy, and pain management. Frequently, it can be difficult to predict how long recovery might take, and how debilitating an injury might be over the long term.
For this and other reasons, it is important, if you or a loved one has been injured as a result of someone else's negligence, that you have an attorney with experience in back injuries.
