Back injuries are a common result of car collisions, falls, and other incidents in which a person is injured through another person's careless or negligent actions. Injuries to the back and spine can be intensely painful, limit the accident victim's mobility and ability to function normally, and may require surgery to repair – though even with surgical intervention, there may still be lasting damage. Unfortunately, back problems are also a frequent result of the normal aging process, which insurance companies are often quick to point out when an accident victim seeks compensation for back injuries caused by traumatic injury.

After suffering a serious injury as a result of the negligent or reckless actions of others, many accident victims understandably focus on the present: the pain and limitations caused by their injuries, the demands of their medical treatment, and the immediate financial concerns stemming from lost wages and medical bills. These pressing issues must be addressed in your personal injury claim. It is also important not to lose sight of the long-term repercussions of your injury.

Some personal injury cases are straightforward: another car crashes into yours and your leg is broken, requiring immediate treatment and several months of physical therapy in order to enable you to recover fully and resume your customary activities. But sometimes the injuries suffered by an accident victim are of a severity or a nature that he or she is left with a permanent disability, a lifelong condition, or an increased risk of future health problems. Joint damage may render a patient more likely to develop arthritis later in life and at an earlier age, and head trauma can leave a victim more vulnerable to sustaining serious damage from subsequent head injuries. So how are these permanent injuries and increased risks adjudicated when it's time to work out how much you deserve in fair compensation for your injuries?

NJ Spinal Injury Attorney Discusses Car Accident's Impact on Lower Back

Posted by Francis M. Smith on Fri, May 02, 2014

In a car crash or other accident in which trauma is inflicted on your body, some injuries make themselves known immediately and their diagnosis is quite clear. Unfortunately, other injuries may not manifest immediately – and even when they do, it can often be hard for doctors to pinpoint exactly what the cause of your pain could be. Like many injuries to the neck and back, damage that centers around the lower back often presents these difficulties for doctors and accident victims. The difficulty in diagnosing lower back injuries makes finding a trustworthy NJ back injury attorney absolutely crucial if you find yourself with back pain following a car accident. You need someone to help you keep the insurance companies off your back – literally and metaphorically – with their pushy representatives, their denials of benefits under your policy, and the paltry settlement offers from the other driver's insurance company. It is enough that you're trying to secure the treatment you need to recover.
