Spinal cord and back injuries are caused by trauma to the spine that fractures, dislocates, crushes, or compresses vertebrae. Accident victims may sustain mild to severe spinal and back injuries in a variety of ways, from car crashes to falls. The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center estimates that 12,500 new cases of spinal injury occur annually and that victims cope with symptoms ranging from chronic pain to severe nerve damage and partial or full paralysis.
If you have suffered a spine or back injury due to the negligence of another person, you deserve compensation. A consultation with an attorney can help you to learn how to get it.
How a Back or Spine Injury Can Change Your Life
A spine or back injury can have long-lasting impacts on your health and the way you live your life. To understand what your legal options are for compensation, it is crucial that you seek the help of an experienced law firm. Your injury may not only require significant ongoing medical expenses, but may also prevent you from working and earning an income. In addition, the recovery period can be frustratingly long and painful. Being able to cope with your injuries now and in the future is dependent on securing fair compensation for the pain you have endured.
