The Full Cost of a Back Injury
Back injuries can leave a person with devastating disabilities and long-term health problems. These injuries often come as a result of trauma to the back, but may result from a variety of health problems. The results of a back injury may leave the injured individual in need of emergency medical care as well as long-term rehabilitative treatment. In some cases, these injuries may produce permanent disabilities that can demand complete career and lifestyle changes.
If you or someone you love has sustained a back injury because of another person’s negligent or reckless conduct, there may be financial compensation available to cover the cost of those injuries through a civil lawsuit.

The Scope of Back Injury Treatment and Recovery
Back injuries can have a profound impact on a person’s life, often creating a major need for expensive medical treatments. Specifically, the following treatment requirements may be needed:
- Pain management medication and other drug therapies
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Psychological therapy for abrupt lifestyle changes and stress management
In addition to these costs, a person may face a drastic loss of income during their treatment and recovery phases due to an inability to work. However, all of these expenses may be covered through a successful injury lawsuit.
