It is important for victims to understand the different types of back injuries. There are other major concerns besides the excruciating pain a back injury can cause. The pain can be an indication of more serious problems, such as a spinal cord injury.
The back pain resulting from a car accident can be felt from the neck area down to the tailbone. The injury is not also limited to car accidents. You can suffer a back injury from other accidents such as tripping, slip and fall accidents and work accidents.
Again, back injuries can be severe and have life altering ramifications and even require surgery. The recovery time can take weeks to months to years to fully recover from and can affect everyday activities, such as the ability to perform household chores, playing with your children and even your ability to perform your job, causing a possible loss of wages.
It is important to know that if you have suffered a back injury as a result of an accident; you may be entitled to compensation.
