A car accident can be a very traumatizing event in a person’s life, and even more so when you were not at-fault for it. It can cost a person tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to treat themselves and repair their vehicle. One common injury that car accident victims get treated includes back injuries. This may be whiplash, a spinal fracture, a herniated disk, or many others.

Some of these injuries may not be readily apparent and symptoms may appear in the days following the accident due to the nature of the injury or because the shock of the event masks them. In this time, your injury could worsen. This is why it is imperative that you seek medical attention immediately following the accident – for your own health and to maintain a strong claim against the other driver. Failure to seek medical attention right after an accident gives the insurance companies a detail on which they can discredit you and your damages. Although you may feel fine, you should always seek medical attention for yourself after an accident to ensure that you actually are fine or if you must be treated for your injuries.

If you feel back pain or other symptoms of a back injury after an accident and you have sought medical attention, you should be able to file a claim for the damages that you incurred from the accident. Your attorney will assist you in gathering evidence against the other driver through witness statements, police reports, potential surveillance footage, medical records, and bills. After your initial treatment, you should contact an experienced attorney who can help you navigate this process and get compensation for your losses.

If another person caused your injuries, you can file a claim against them for monetary damages.
