More Than Just A Nagging Ache, Back Injuries Can Hold You Back From Life
The back, and spine, is the information superhighway of the body. When your back is “out of whack,” it can affect and limit your movement. If your spine suffers damage, it can dramatically affect your mobility and your ability to care for yourself and live your life.
If you or a loved one was in an accident that caused a back or spine injury, it’s important to speak to a personal injury attorney about your rights to compensation. The team at Reddick Law, PLLC can help. We know you have questions. Maybe you are wondering if you even have a case. We offer a free case analysis so that you can move forward with confidence.
Which Back Injuries Qualify For Compensation?
Back injuries can range from strained muscled that mend in a week, to broken bones and serious, long-lasting effects such as paralysis. Injuries that are caused by negligence such as an inattentive motorist or a manager who does not clean up a spill in a restaurant, are potential cases.
Nursing home residents are at increased risk for falls. This may be due to overmedication, nonsupervision due to understaffing or abuse or neglect.
Some back injuries require physical therapy, cortisone shots or surgery. It is important to be looked at by a medical professional to understand the extent of the injury and the treatment that will be needed.
The Timeline For Healing
Back injuries are tricky. Some heal in a few days or weeks. Others can take a year. Some serious injuries can last over the course of a lifetime. These injuries will require ongoing therapy, medication and potential surgery. An aching, throbbing or shooting pain during movement can keep a person from going to work. This means lost wages. An attorney who specifically works in personal injury and back issues can provide useful guidance regarding the amount of care required and the compensation to seek.
