Car Accidents and Back Injury
Chances are that you or someone you know has been in some type of car accident and experienced at least some type of back injury, no matter how minor. Even though many people experience back injuries after car accidents that are fairly minimal, they can still cause ongoing pain or discomfort. Immediately following an accident, a victim may have a tendency to ignore a “small” pain and feel thankful for not having any serious injuries.
However, weeks, months, and even years of “minor” pain can start to add up. Also, car accidents can lead to major, life-altering back injuries. No matter the severity, you may wish to seek legal assistance if your car accident-related back injury was caused by the negligence of another person or entity.
Types of Back Injuries
Car accidents can result in various back injuries, including but not limited to:
- Muscle strain or sprain
- Broken ribs
- Herniated or bulging disc
- Fractured vertebrae
- Spinal cord injury, which could lead to full or partial paralysis
Any of these or other back injuries could lead to ongoing pain or disability requiring medical treatment. They may even keep accident victims from being able to work at their jobs or accomplish everyday tasks on their own.
If you suffered a back injury due to the negligence of another party during a car accident and are struggling with the results financially, physically, or emotionally, there may be ways to seek financial compensation to help you through this difficult time. You should not have to suffer alone due to someone else’s mistake. Call the Madison car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. at 800-242-2874 to speak with someone about your legal options.
