What Are My Options For Compensation?

  • A personal injury claim: If the negligence of an individual or a company caused your injury, you can seek a settlement or an award through a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Workers’ compensation: Were you injured at your job? Workers’ compensation benefits can cover your medical bills, lost income and other damages.

Signs Of A Back Injury

It is far too common for someone to write off the signs of a back injury as just the result of sleeping in a funny position or maybe sitting in their chair at work for too long. Back injuries present many different signs, such as:

  • Pain or tenderness
  • Bruising or swelling
  • Inability to stand straight or move properly
  • Muscle spasms

These injuries can even present pain in seemingly unrelated areas, like the legs, chest or stomach. It is important to not underestimate any kind of pain or discomfort you are experiencing, especially if it lasts more than a day.

Most Common Types Of Back Injuries

Some types of back injuries are more common than others. Recognizing these injuries and their symptoms can help you get the treatment you need to recover from them. Some common examples include:

  • Sprains often present a “pop” sound when they initially happen and result in difficulty bending paired with increased pain with certain movements
  • Herniated discs often leave someone with arm or leg pain, weakness in their muscles, and a sensation of numbness
  • Broken vertebrae comes with extreme senses of pain in the back, hunching the injured person over. This injury can also cause a person to lose a notable amount of their height.

If you suspect that you are suffering from a serious back injury, do not hope things will improve by ignoring the problem. Your back is one of the most commonly used parts of your body, and a worsened condition can leave you with a lifetime of complications and problems.
