Common Defenses in a Back Injury Case
Very often we have clients who injure their back in an accident. When they are sent for a diagnostic test such as an MRI, the radiologist who reads the films states that the person has a condition such as degenerative disc disease or spinal stenosis. These are conditions that develop over the course of time.
THIS DOES NOT MEAN OUR CLIENT DID NOT INJURE THEIR BACK IN THE ACCIDENT IN QUESTION!!!
People who defend lawsuits or the insurance companies that evaluate them will then defend the case by stating that the injured person has an injury that predated the accident. This is not the case.
People who have degenerative condtions in their spine are often injured more seriously when they are subjected to trauma. Often, people can have no symptoms but a degenerative condition that becomes symptomatic after a trauma.
