Why does my back hurt after a car accident?


If you or a loved one has experienced a back injury from an accident, contact Mike Agruss Law for a free consultation so we can help you recover from this experience and get fairly compensated.

A back injury is a general term encompassing many different types of damage or trauma to the connective tissues of the back, including bones, muscles, tissues, tendons, ligaments, and more. They can be caused by physical exertion, a fall, a sudden movement causing stress to the back, sports, automobile accidents, and more.

A car accident is traumatizing enough as it is in the moment, but to feel pain and find out that you have a back injury requiring treatment makes the situation even more frightening. After an car accident, you may feel some back pains, numbness, tingling sensations, weakness, a limited or lost range of motion, or shooting pains through your arms or legs. Symptoms like these are indicative of a back injury and you should seek medical treatment immediately and need a car accident lawyer.

Your back may hurt due to damage to one or more of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, discs, or bones in your back. You can be affected in the lumbar region (lower back), thoracic region (upper-middle back), or cervical region (neck). Some common back injuries include vertebral fractures, whiplash, herniated discs, bulging discs, sciatica, and more. You may have even experienced a spinal cord injury, which is one of the most serious injuries requiring immediate medical attention and likely extensive treatment. 

If another person caused your injuries, you can file a claim against them for monetary damages. Medical care for a back injury is not cheap, and it certainly is not cheap when it involves potential complications that you may have had to deal with.
