Car Accidents Back Injury Lawsuit Lawyers in Florida
Car accident forces often cause passengers and drivers to suffer serious back and neck injuries. Moreover, the severity of the crash forces on a person’s body will determine what type of back injury is sustained and the severity of the injury. The spinal cord is a delicate part of the body, and it is essential for a multitude of bodily functions and movements. A motor vehicle accident puts tremendous pressure on the victim’s spine, leading to pain and potentially permanent damage.
Back injuries manifest in several different ways following a severe car accident, and the injuries listed below are some of the most common types of back injuries that transpire in car accidents:
- Lumbar sprain
- Spinal fractures
- Spinal cord damage
- Disc herniation
- Spondylolisthesis (vertebrae out of place)
- Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the bones)
..."Back and spinal injuries in car accidents are caused by violent back-and-forth forces. These forces affect the head, neck, and back."
Each type of back injury will require a different treatment plan and it is crucial to have your back examined by a medical professional right after an accident.
Back and spinal injuries in car accidents are caused by violent back-and-forth forces. These forces affect the head, neck, and back. The accident victim may sustain a whiplash injury when the neck is violently thrust forward and backward. Most people do not realize that a whiplash injury is a serious and painful injury.
Another instance in which accident victims can receive spinal injuries include being
- hurled against the car door,
- pushed into the auto, or
- ejected from the vehicle.
Each of these sudden movements can damage your back. Minor back injuries can be treated with rest, cold compresses, specialized exercises, and pain relievers. However, serious back and spinal injuries will require surgery, steroid injections, or nerve-blocking injections. Surgical treatments for auto accident back injuries could include:
