Personal injury lawsuits cover the injuries suffered by those who have been hurt due to the negligence of another human being. When the plaintiff is determined in court to be the cause of the accident that caused your injury, you are entitled to receive monetary compensation from the guilty party’s insurance company.
Injury to the back is very common after an automobile accident, for example, and these injuries lead to several unpleasant consequences. Back pain is the main reason that people become disabled all over the world and is the number one reason that people miss work. Back pain is the third most common reason that patients visit their doctors. It is also very expensive. Americans spend $50 billion each year to treat their back pain, and if we add the wages and productivity that have been lost, the number increases to $100 billion.
Back pain affects individuals and their families in many negative ways. If you have a family, you may have begun to avoid doing the things that you used to enjoy with your spouse or children. In addition to that, you may be very wary of the activities that will make your back pain worse. Since it can take a long time for a back injury to recover, you want to avoid making it worse as much as you can. This can lead to depression, and it doesn’t improve while the situation remains as it is. Because you may not be able to work while you are recovering from your injury, things may be difficult for you and your family financially, and this only adds to the anxiety that you may be feeling right now.
