When a car accident happens, people get hurt. And when the result is a back injury, your entire life can be put on hold while you try to heal. If the damage goes beyond a muscle injury, you could be looking at surgery and physical therapy. Why should someone else’s distracted driving derail your life? Hinkle Law Offices can help you get the compensation you deserve for your pain, suffering and medical care.
The After-Effects of Back Injuries
When the car accident is over, it’s imperative to be assessed by a doctor. Some back injuries are mild—a pulled muscle, bruises, stiffness—and can be easily treated. Others are severe, requiring surgical intervention, physical therapy and medication for pain. With the spinal cord being at risk in back injuries, it’s extremely important to have any back pain seen to immediately.
Muscle injuries—resulting in torn, bruised or pulled muscle tissue—are treated with rest, physical therapy and usually involve a pain medication. These can heal on their own, but they limit mobility and can cause lost wages. Severe back injuries—herniated discs, fractured vertebrae, spinal cord bruising—can require surgery and even have permanent effects regardless of treatment. This does more than just limit your wage earning potential; it limits your entire life and forces you to make adjustments to accommodate your injury.
