A Long, Grueling and Expensive Road to Recovery
The composition of the human back makes it prone to injuries and makes recovery very long and painful. The same flexibility and semi-rigidity that allows us to perform many different tasks can also be a serious hindrance when the spine is injured in an auto accident. The vertebrae, discs, ligaments, musculature and other components that comprise the human back are especially prone to serious injuries in auto accidents, such as the following:
- Chronic, debilitating pain in the back and limbs
- Numbness in the extremities
- Pinched nerves
- Compressed vertebrae
- Inability to control bowel, bladder and other bodily functions
- Other serious injuries that dramatically and permanently impair the victim’s quality of life
A Legacy of Helping Back Injury Victims Since 1977
People who have suffered back injuries in auto accidents are often contacted by the at-fault driver’s insurance company a day or two after the accident. They know their client was negligent and that he or she is liable for damages. As such, they often offer a modest settlement in exchange for the victim’s signature on some forms. Signing these forms without having them reviewed by an Orlando car accident lawyer is a serious mistake! The victim could be signing away rights to seek damages and receive the compensation needed to treat back injuries and regain mobility and independence. If you have suffered a back injury in an auto accident, you have a right to seek damages.
