The back makes up a large part of the human body and it comprised of muscles, tendons, and the spinal cord. The spinal cord is one of the most important parts of the body, as it communicates messages from the brain to the limbs and organs. Any injury to either the back or the spinal cord can have serious and lasting effects for victims.
There are many different ways that you can sustain injury to your back or spine and only some of the common causes of these injuries are as follows:
If you have suffered an injury to your back or spine in an accident that was the fault of another person or party, you should not hesitate to discuss your rights with experienced back and spinal cord injury lawyer Benjamin Williams today.
According to the American Chiropractic Association, an estimated 31 million people1 in the United States suffer from back pain. Many people experience their back pain as the result of an accident or injury and such pain can be long-lasting. Back injuries can include strained muscles, sprained ligaments, irritated joints, ruptured disks, and more.
While back injuries are fairly common, that does not make them any less painful or limiting in your everyday life. In fact, many people cannot even walk or get out of bed following a back injury. Such injuries can require extensive medical attention, medications, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and additional treatments to get you back on your feet. In the meantime, you may lose income if you are unable to work until your back injury has recovered. Between medical bills, lost earnings, and pain, a back injury can have serious effects on your life.
The National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center reports that about 273,000 people2 are living with spinal cord injuries in the U.S. A spinal cord injury can involve compression or trauma that causes damage to the delicate spinal tissue that facilitates neurological information to the body. Everyone with any type of spinal cord injury needs to seek medical attention to be stabilized, diagnosed, and monitored to minimize the damage. This is because, in many cases, spinal cord injuries can be catastrophic and can leave victims permanently disabled.
Spinal cord injuries have the potential to leave a victim paralyzed below the point of the injury on the spine. Such paralysis may be temporary or permanent and may affect movement, sensation, and organ function. Many victims of spinal injuries need assistance with even the most basic tasks and may not be able to work, walk, or live independently following their injury.
