Back injuries are among the most common injuries resulting from an accident. Some injuries can resolve themselves with rest. However, some can cause lasting and potentially lifelong pain. If you are suffering back pain after a motor vehicle accident or a fall, it is important to seek immediate evaluation from a medical professional, who will assess your injury and recommend necessary treatment to mitigate your pain and accelerate your recovery. If left untreated, back pain can become chronic and lead to serious surgery in the future.

The impact of a motor vehicle accident or a fall can sprain, fracture or otherwise severely injure your back, neck and/or spinal cord. Soft tissue and muscular injuries can sometimes take days to show up after an accident, so it is important to seek medical evaluation immediately to rule out potential underlying critical injuries and begin proper treatment as soon as possible.

If you have sustained back pain following an accident, you have the right to be compensated for costs related to your therapy, medications, surgery and other medical treatment. If that pain is so severe that you are unable to perform your work or other duties, you may be entitled to additional compensation. It is important to protect your rights after an accident by consulting with a lawyer as soon as possible after an accident.
