Vehicle collisions can cause all types of serious injuries, but some injuries are particularly common in auto wrecks. The forceful impact of car crashes and the positioning of occupants within vehicles make injuries to the shoulders, neck, and back quite common. Of these, back injuries related to car accidents are particularly serious.  

Why Back Injuries Can Have a Devastating Impact on Your Life

Your back contains the spinal column, which is responsible for sending and receiving signals from the brain to the other parts of the body. If your back is injured, this incredibly important process can be interrupted. Back injuries can cause intense physical pain, including chronic pain that hinders your ability to enjoy life.

Below are a few ways your back injury could affect you after an auto accident:

  • Back injuries can cause intense pain, making it difficult or impossible for you to work.
  • Some back injuries will damage the nerves in the spine, leading to partial or total paralysis. Your mobility can be limited in other ways, as well.
  • Depending on your injury, you may require back surgery to correct the problem, which is expensive, scary, and painful.
  • Some people will require narcotics in order to function with back injury pain, which can lead to substance abuse, dependence, and other issues in your life.

When you’ve suffered a back injury because of an auto collision you didn’t cause, you may be able to seek compensation from the party responsible. A car crash lawyer at Craig Swapp & Associates can help you file a winning personal injury claim.
