Back injuries are some of the most serious injuries a person can sustain. In the most serious cases, a back injury may cause medical complications such as partial or complete paralysis, rendering a victim unable work or even live independently. As a result, it is extremely important for people who have sustained a back injury to determine whether their injury was caused by the negligence of another. If so, they may be able to recover damages by bringing a personal injury action against the responsible party or parties. The Coweta County personal injury attorneys of the law offices of Shane Smith can help you determine whether you have a claim and also help you get the compensation you deserve.
What Kinds of Accidents Cause Back Injuries?
Back injuries can happen while doing almost any activity, and sometimes occur in the absence of fault. For example, if you injure your back moving a piece of furniture from one room to another you likely will not be able to bring a lawsuit against anyone. Some common examples of back injuries that could be the result of someone else’s negligence include:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Sports accidents
- Premises liability accidents
There are many other ways that a back injury could be the result of negligence, and an experienced personal injury attorney can help you decide how best to proceed. After a back injury, it is essential that victims seek medical attention immediately. With many back injuries, early medical intervention is extremely important to the overall outcome of the injury. Finally, be sure to contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible, as any delay may jeopardize your ability to recover.
