Are You Suffering from Back Pain After a Car Accident?

b2ap3_thumbnail_back-pain-car-accident-DuPage-County.jpgPersonal injury clients often experience back injuries after being involved in a car accident. Back injuries, even minor ones, hurt a victim’s quality of life.

Some back injuries will never fully heal, and many injuries require extensive medical treatment. You should not have to pay for this medical treatment, and you should be fully compensated for your pain and time taken off work to heal and address you injuries.

Common Types of Back Injuries Sustained in Car Wrecks

  • Herniated and bulging discs;
  • Soft tissue bruising and tearing;
  • Compression fractures;
  • Axial bursts;
  • Flexion distraction fractures;
  • Transverse process fractures; and
  • Dislocation fractures.

What if My Back Injuries Appear Later?

Back injuries often do not reveal themselves until days or weeks after an accident. In many cases, back injuries get worse with time or require more medical treatment than originally anticipated.

If you accept a quick settlement from the insurance company, you will not be able to recover any more money in relation to the accident. This is why advise our clients to give themselves enough time after the accident to fully understand the extent of their injuries.

We also encourage our clients to get as much treatment as possible before agreeing to a settlement. In Illinois, car accident victims have two years to file a suit.

What if My Back Was Bad Before the Accident?

While back pain is one of the most common car accident injuries, it is also a common health problem. Back pain can be attributed to a specific accident or is a condition that slowly gets worse over time.

If this sounds like you, recovery after a car accident is still possible. The party responsible for the accident is responsible for the exacerbation of your injuries.

Having pre-existing injuries is a complicating factor for your legal case. In these circumstances, a lawyer should likely be retained.

Typically, a medical opinion will be needed to determine the extent of your back problems before the accident compared to the extent of your injuries attributable to the accident. The at-fault party will be responsible for the difference.
