Years of Experience
Have You Sustained A Back Injury In Rhode Island?
It is estimated that 80% of adults will suffer from a back injury at some point in their lifetime. While many of these back injuries are caused by a truly unavoidable accident, many are due to the negligence of another person. Car crashes and slips and falls are common causes of back injuries - and causes that could be prevented. If you or a loved one has suffered a back injury, chances are you are seeing medical bills pile up and may even be dealing with loss of income. An experienced Providence Back Injury Lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Common Types of Back Injuries
Your back is made up of more than just bones. There is also muscle, tendons, and other tissue. This means there is a lot of opportunity for something to get injured. There are three main types of back injuries that you may see.
- Sprains/Strains - this happens when your back is overstretched and you tear a tendon, causing the surrounding area to become inflamed.
- Herniated Discs - Your discs act as cushions between your vertebrae, and when one becomes damaged it is known as a herniated disc.
- Fractured Vertebrae - This is when one of the actual bones in your back gets broken - this can be an incredibly serious injury since the bones are what support your back and protect your spinal cord.
Who is responsible for a back injury?
Responsibility for a back injury depends on many factors. The easiest way to determine who is responsible for a back injury is to determine who is responsible for the incident that caused it. If a reckless driver is distracted by their cell phone and hits a pedestrian, they would likely be found responsible for that person’s injuries. Likewise, if a product malfunctions and causes a back injury, there would be a possible product liability case where the product manufacturer or designer may be held responsible.
What types of accidents result in back injuries?
Back injuries can have a variety of causes. Lifting something a bit too heavy may be the most common cause people think of. Some incidents, however, are caused by the negligence of another person, and in these situations, you may deserve compensation.
- Car Accidents - Car accidents are very common cause of back injuries. Whiplash and otherwise being jostled around in a car crash can cause severe, long-lasting injuries.
- Motorcycle Accidents - Even if you take every safety precaution while riding a motorcycle, an accident can still cause severe injuries. Back injuries are all too common in motorcycle accidents since there is nothing protecting your body from being struck by a vehicle.
- Slip and Fall Accidents - Icy sidewalks, wet supermarket floors, and uneven floors can all cause someone to fall. These types of accidents commonly cause back injuries.
- Product Liability - If a product is not designed or manufactured correctly, it can cause serious injuries, including severe back injuries.
How do you know if a back injury is serious?
Back injuries can be extremely serious. If you have any back pain, shortness of breath, numbness, or pins and needles in your arms or legs it could be a sign of a serious injury. Seek medical attention right away if your back has been injured.
Can you sue someone for a back injury?
If another person causes you to suffer a back injury, either through their negligence or through their intentional actions, they could be held responsible. If someone intentionally or unintentionally injures your back, there may be the possibility of taking them to court in order to get compensated for your medical bills and other associated costs.
Is it worth it to hire a lawyer for a back injury?
If you or a loved one has suffered from a back injury due to the negligence or actions of someone else, it is always worth it to at least discuss your case with a back injury lawyer. An experienced lawyer will be able to assess your case and provide you with advice as to how you should proceed.
