In the moments after an accident that injures your back, you may be feeling excruciating pain – or you may feel nothing at all. But the amount of pain you may or may not feel does not necessarily correspond to how severe your injury actually is. Significant pain can be caused by a slipped or herniated disc in your spine that, while temporarily debilitating, can heal with time and rest. An absence of pain may suggest that you have permanently and irreparably damaged your spinal column, which can result in a lifetime of paralysis.
Seeking immediate medical treatment if you suspect a back injury is an important step that can help you obtain the best medical outcome possible. Retaining the services of an experienced personal injury lawyer is likewise an important step that can ensure you are able to seek compensation when the negligence of another person caused your back injury.
Back injuries can happen suddenly and without any warning. While some back injuries can heal with time, others result in permanent damage to the victim’s body. The spinal column is especially susceptible to injury from:
If you believe you may have suffered a back injury, either because of the pain you feel or because of the nature of your accident, try to make as little exertion as possible. Do not move more than is necessary to summon medical help. If you cannot move without pain, you should not move unless you have no other way to summon help.
Seek immediate medical attention and follow your doctor’s orders. While you do not need to submit to experimental, untested, or prohibitively expensive surgeries or procedures, you should follow your doctor’s recommendations, especially as they pertain to work limitations and restrictions.
