Long Island Personal Injury Attorneys—Back Injuries

Millions of Americans suffer back pain every year. Some common causes of back pain are slip and falls, motor vehicle accidents, sport-related injuries, and on-the-job injuries. Although proper posture, conditioning and body mechanics are keys to preventing back injuries, back problems caused by accidents can't always be prevented.

The Effects of a Back Injury

Depending on how badly you injured your back and whether or not your spinal cord was effected (partially severed, compressed, etc.), you may experience a range of symptoms after an accident such as:

  • Pain running down your leg (Sciatica)

  • Severe pressure or pain in your neck, head or back

  • Weakness, incoordination or paralysis in any part of your body

  • Numbness or a loss of feeling in hands, fingers, feet or toes

  • Sudden loss of bladder/bowel control

  • Difficulty with balance and walking

  • Difficulty breathing

  • Twisted neck or spine

Sometimes several courses of treatment need to be tried before the patient responds favorably. Back pain treatment can require hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical costs, lost income and ongoing care. Gaining proper compensation is difficult. Victims need an experienced lawyer who knows the injuries and how to find the help you need.

Why It's Important Not to Wait to Seek Medical Treatment

Not everyone experiences symptoms right away, and getting immediate medical attention can help lessen the extent of complications and shorten the recovery time.
