After a car accident, you may find yourself with intermittent, low-grade back pain that doesn’t seems to improve on its own. Even though you may not show outward signs of injury, you may have suffered an internal injury to your back or lumbar which can only be confirmed by a doctor.
The human back is both a work of art and science. It comprises of a vertebral column divided into three distinct parts, a network of nerves, tendons, cartilage and more. All these parts work together to help keep you upright, twist to either side, and send vital messages to other parts of the body.
In most cases, back injuries caused by car accidents will not get better on their own without treatment. Our Dallas attorneys can file a personal injury claim on your behalf in order to seek compensation to cover medical treatment as well as to compensate you for your pain and suffering, and we don’t charge you a penny unless we win your case.
Common back issues suffered by accident victims include the following:
- Herniated Disk – In-between each vertebrae, you have a disk made of cartilage which ensures that bones don’t come into close contact with each other. An accident may displace this cartilage, causing it to jut out. The victim then develops pain that gets worse over time, necessitating surgery to pop the disc back into place as well as continuing physical therapy. This is often referred to as a “slipped disk” or “spinal disc herniation.”
- Compression Fractures – These occur when the whole spinal column is forced to move down and into itself due to the impact of a collision. This then can lead to spinal bone fracture, spondylolisthesis, paralysis and more.
- Transverse Fracture – The spine, being flexible, can move to the left and then the right, and it can even twist in either direction. However, it can only do this to a certain extent before reaching a point where it fractures.
- Soft tissue trauma and bruising – Muscles, tendons and ligaments may bear the brunt of the force from a collision, leading to tearing, snapping, bruising and more.
The back basically holds you up and allows you a range of motion that can only be seen in humans and select animals. Any kind of back trauma can put you out of work and even in bed for weeks or months at a time. Lost wages due to a back injury can be financially devastating, but if the injury was caused by the negligence of someone else, you have the right to seek compensation for 100% of your related damages through a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
It is vitally important to have your back checked out after an accident if you are experiencing pain that did not previously exist. Without documentation of your injuries, you stand little chance at a successful personal injury claim. It is also important to act quickly. If too much time passes between the date of your accident and the date you seek treatment, the insurance company will attempt to claim that the injury is not related.
