Car accidents are one of the most common causes of back injuries in this country. Back injuries suffered as a result of a car accident include whiplash, lumbar or lower back sprain and strain, spinal cord injuries and compression fractures of the bones of the spine.
Back injuries caused by car accidents are painful, life-altering and at times life-threatening injuries. This type of injury can cause chronic back pain, numbness in the extremities, muscle weakness, bladder and bowel dysfunction and paralysis.
Whiplash injuries can lead to long term disability if left untreated and lumbar or lower back sprain and strain injuries can result in debilitating pain that worsens with activity. Spinal cord injuries can cause serious nerve damage resulting in paralysis and infection, sexual dysfunction and uncontrollable muscle spasms.
If you have suffered a back injury as a result of an automobile accident, you may be eligible to be compensated for your medical expenses, loss of wages and future potential earning capacity along with rehabilitation costs and your pain and suffering.
