Back Injury

Back Injuries

Back injuries can occur many ways, including through a workplace injury, a slip and fall or a car accident. If the negligence or intentional conduct of another person has caused your back injury or exacerbated a pre-existing injury, you may be entitled to damages, including you medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Types of back injuries can include:

  • Lower back strain and sprain
  • Herniated or bulged disk
  • Compression vertebrae fracture
  • Damage to soft tissues supporting the spine or its structures, such as muscles, ligaments, and joints
  • Nerve pain
  • Facet joint dysfunction
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis

When an accident exacerbates a pre-existing injury, the defense will often argue against its responsibility by blaming all the person’s problems on the pre-existing back complaints. Skilled personal injury attorneys know how to prove responsibility for a back injury and the proper measure of damages.
