Back Injuries Lawyer
Personal Injury Lawyers - Representing People Nationwide
There is a wide range of back injuries, including:
- Back aches and strains
- Lumbar strains and sprains
- Bulging disk
- Herniated disk
- Cervical injuries
- Spinal fracture
- Paraplegia / quadriplegia and other severed spinal cord injuries
- Temporary or permanent paralysis
If the injury occurred as a result of someone else's fault or negligence, you may be entitled to financial compensation. But prior to considering any settlement proposals, you should understand the nature of your injuries, which are not always readily or entirely apparent. You should also understand your legal rights and options.
Tools that doctors use to diagnose your injury may include a visual/physical examination, X-rays (to reveal fractures and bone structure detail), CT scans (to identify a herniated disc), or an MRI scan (to reveal nerve root detail and for pre-surgical planning).
Back-related injuries are often more serious than the present symptoms, if any, would indicate. If someone was responsible for your back injury, a settlement should include enough compensation to cover all future medical care. Back injury damages may include financial compensation for:
- Current medical and hospital bills
- Future doctor visits and medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
