There are many different ways being involved in a car, bike, or pedestrian accident can result in a back injury.  These injuries can range in severity from mild to severe.  It is important to seek immediate medical attention after an accident, and all the symptoms you experience should be fully discussed with your doctor as soon as possible after an accident.

 One of the most common back injuries is injury to the soft tissue structures of the spine.  These symptoms may be relatively mild, and resolve within a few weeks after the accident occurred.  Sometimes, the symptoms are more severe and can linger for years.  A person’s age, pre-existing medical condition and history of prior injuries can all have an impact on the severity of a back injury after an accident.  Discussing these issues fully with your lawyer is the best course of action after an accident occurs.

Another common type of back injury involves injury to ligaments or discs after a collision.  These injuries are diagnosed in various different ways, but often may require X-ray, CT scan, or an MRI to fully diagnose the nature and extent of the injury.  It is particularly bendficial to consult a lawyer as soon as possible following an accident to ensure you are aware of your rights and legal obligations following a back injury.
