Common Types of Back Injuries
People with a back injury can suffer a range of physical problems, including:
- Paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Damage to spinal nerves and vertebrae
- Broken back
- Chronic pain
- Fractured and herniated discs
- Tears to the spinal cord
We also see many cases of failed back syndrome from accidents or unsuccessful back surgeries. Unfortunately, these clients often suffer a lifetime of pain and disability.
Rehabilitation and other long-term treatment are usually necessary after a back or spinal cord injury. Long-term pain management is also common.
Back Injury Causes
Injuries on the job frequently cause back injuries. Any job that requires the use of heavy machinery or has risk for falls can lead to injury, including jobs in:
- Brick masonry
- Automotive support industries
If you were injured because of your job, we can help you file for workers' compensation, including total and permanent disability benefits,
Of course, many types of accidents also cause back and spinal injuries, such as car accidents, rollovers, ejection from a vehicle and slip and fall accidents. In these as well as other cases, we use life-care planners and economists to fight for the compensation you need.
