Common Losses from Back Injuries

Back injuries can disrupt your life in many different ways, and they can result in many physical and financial losses. If you suffered a back injury due to another person’s negligence, you should immediately contact an Austin back injury lawyer

Serious back injuries can occur in a variety of different accidents. When a back injury occurs, the accident victim might need to undergo significant (and sometimes risky) medical treatment, miss time from work, and suffer intense pain and suffering. 

If you or a person you love has suffered a back injury in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, the experienced Austin back injury lawyers at TK Injury Lawyers, are here to help. Our skilled legal team could file a claim with the at-fault person’s insurance company on your behalf and pursue the compensation that you need for your back injury. 

If the insurance company will not offer you the compensation that you deserve for your back injury, we could litigate your case to a conclusion in the state court system. Please speak with us today to learn more about how we could help you with your Austin back injury case.  

How Do Back Injuries Happen?

Back injuries can happen in accidents that are brought about by the negligence of others. For example, in a car accident, the accident victim could suffer a back injury when his or her body moves around inside the vehicle at the time of the impact. The accident victim’s body could move forward and backward in a whiplash-style motion, or from side to side.

Similarly, in a slip and fall accident, the accident victim could land on his or her back, suffering a serious injury in the process. Motorcyclists and bicyclists who fall to the ground in an accident could also suffer a serious and permanent back injury. 

Complications from Back Injuries

Back injuries that a person suffers in an accident can lead to a whole host of serious complications. Some of those complications include the following:

  • Soft tissue contusions Soft tissue neck and back injuries include muscular sprains and strains. While these injuries sometimes resolve on their own, in many cases, they require a continued regimen of physical therapy treatment.
  • Full and partial paralysis Most especially when the accident victim falls on his or her back, a full or partial paralysis injury could result. Paralysis injuries prevent the accident victim from being able to function or feel in the affected area.

Back injuries can also prevent accident victims from taking part in activities that they enjoyed prior to the accident. In the case of full or partial paralysis injuries, they might even prevent an accident victim from being able to use one or more body parts entirely.
