Back Injury Lawyer
Back injury can occur from a car accident
Your back is an intricate structure of bones, muscles, and other tissues extending from your neck to your pelvis. The lower back is the most common site of back injuries and back pain.
Common back injuries include sprains and strains, herniated discs, and a fractured vertebrae. These injuries can cause severe pain and limit your movement.
Pain and suffering, loss of present and future income, are often the consequences of back injuries.
If you’ve suffered a back injury from a car accident, our experienced Vancouver back injury lawyers help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
Herniated disc injury claim
Your backbone, or spine, is made up of 26 bones called vertebrae. In between them are soft discs filled with a jelly-like substance. These discs cushion the vertebrae and keep them in place.
When you suffer from a herniated disc, one of the most common back injuries, these discs slip out of place or ruptures. If it presses on a nerve, it can cause back pain or sciatica.
- Back pain that spreads to the buttocks and legs, when the herniated disc is in your lower back
- Neck pain that spreads to the shoulders and upper arms, when the herniated disc is in your upper back
- Tingling or numbness
- Muscle spasms or weakness
