What are common types of car accident back injuries?
Back injuries sustained in car accidents can cover a wide range. Some of the most common cases we handle at our law firm involving back injuries include:
- Back pain – Mild to severe back pain is a common injury often associated with car accidents. Depending on the location and severity of the pain, you or a loved one might not be able to work during your recovery and could be in great discomfort.
- Back strain – Strained back muscles due to a car accident are a common injury. Drivers and passengers often pull back muscles in car crashes, especially in the lower back.
- Herniated disc – This type of back injury involves the cushions (discs) located in between the bones in the spine (known as vertebrae) being moved out of line. Herniated discs put additional pressure on the nerves in the spine, resulting in intense lower back pain and pain in the legs.
- Spinal cord injury – Among the most serious back injuries, spinal cord injuries involve damage to the spinal cord and nerves surrounding the back. Bruising of the spinal cord or even more serious, permanent spinal cord injuries can dramatically affect a persons’ life.
- Types of paralysis – When the spinal cord is severed, injury victims often permanently lose the use of certain parts of their body. What part of the body is paralyzed often depends on where the spinal cord injury occurred. Different types of paralysis include:
- Monoplegia – Paralysis affecting one leg or one arm.
- Hemiplegia – Paralysis affecting one leg and one arm on the same side of the body.
- Paraplegia – Paralysis affecting both legs.
- Quadriplegia – Paralysis affecting both arms and both legs. Also sometimes referred to as tetraplegia.
Whatever type of back injury you’re dealing with, we can investigate your car accident and demand the financial compensation you need and deserve.

Don’t underestimate the severity or complexity of your spinal cord injury case. There are so many legal issues that can come up that can prevent you from obtaining the money you need and deserve after your accident.

We know what’s at stake. That’s why we take your case seriously. We know how to negotiate effectively with insurance companies. And if they refuse to cooperate, we’re prepared to take the other driver’s insurance company to court on your behalf.
