Providing Legal Guidance for All Types of Back & Spinal Injury Cases
Back injuries range greatly in type and severity, and what appears to be a minor injury can result in a lifetime of pain and reduced mobility. For example, people with labor-intensive jobs can suffer lower back injuries from performing heavy lifting or repetitive twisting motions in the workplace. Lower back strains and sprains can mean weeks or months of recovery before returning to work. In some cases, workers are not able to perform their previous job or a similar job. This may leave the injury victim and his or her family without a primary wage earner.
Severe back injuries or spinal injuries can be even more devastating. These injuries are often the result of slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall accidents, serious medical malpractice cases, work accidents, falls from elevated heights, and car, motorcycle, and truck accidents.
People with severe back or spinal injuries may need surgery and extensive rehabilitative therapy. Some will have severe pain and need powerful prescription pain medication that may make it difficult to work or complete everyday tasks. Others may experience symptoms such as numbness, tingling and reduced range of motion.
In cases involving the spinal cord, the injury victims may suffer paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia. Lifelong medical treatment and personal care are typically necessary for people with these injuries. Depending on their circumstances, they may be unable to work or earn sufficient income to support themselves. They and their families will need considerable compensation to cover all of the losses associated with such severe injuries.
