Back Injuries – When to Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

By The Law Office of Timothy A. Hughes  Mar. 21, 2011 1:44p

The back is a complex and intricate structure of bones, muscle and tissue extending from the neck down to the pelvis. Back injuries can have a variety of causes including sports injuries, overuse injuries, workplace accidents, premises liability accidents or more commonly, from car accidents.  Common back injuries include sprains, strains, herniated disks and fractured vertebrae. If you have sustained a back injury due to the carelessness, negligence or recklessness of another person, you should speak to a personal injury attorney right away.

Back injuries can range from minor to severe; the same goes with the pain associated with a back injury. One can experience mild aching, to intense, even paralyzing pain, which completely restricts mobility and ones quality of life. Treatment for back injuries range from anti inflammatory drugs to, ice, bed rest, physical therapy, and in more severe cases, surgery may be required.

Back pain can arise anywhere in the spine, from the neck to the tailbone. The back consists of bones and joints of the spine, discs that separate the vertebrae and function as shock absorbers, muscles and ligaments. Severe back injuries can be a result of a fall from a significant height, a car accident, motorcycle accident, a penetrating injury, a blow to the back of the head, excessive twisting of the spine, from lifting a heavy object or from a slip, trip or fall, even from a short distance.

Back injuries can quickly turn into chronic conditions, requiring extensive medical treatment. If you have sustained a back injury on the job, on another person’s or company’s property, in a car, motorcycle or pedestrian accident, or any other situation which was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation in a personal injury claim.
