Back Injuries Can Be Life-Altering

Due to the violent nature of most motor vehicle collisions, drivers or passengers are likely to suffer some degree of back injury. At Cross Border Law, our lawyers represent both Canadian and United States clients who have suffered significant injuries in a car or truck accident.

Depending on numerous factors, a back injury can fall into several categories of severity, including:

  • Muscle strain: Muscles in the back cover a wide area of the body. From the deltoids to the gluteal muscles, the muscles along the spinal column control nearly every core body movement. Sprains and strains in these muscle groups can cause significant discomfort and restricted mobility for long periods of time.
  • Spinal column damage: The spinal column, or vertebrae, are the sections of bone that protect the spinal cord — the bundle of nerves that carry impulses from the brain to all areas of the body. When the vertebrae are fractured or compressed, an individual can suffer immense pain. This type of injury can ultimately impact the spinal cord, causing additional problems in the extremities.
  • Spinal cord damage: The spinal cord is a system of nerves that carry information to and from the brain. When the spinal cord is damaged, these nerve impulses can be disrupted, leading to the loss of sensation or the loss of mobility. The spinal cord does not need to be severed to have consequences. If the spinal cord is twisted, bent or compressed, an individual might experience drastic changes.

Even a seemingly minor collision can have lasting effects on the body. If you were injured due to the negligence or inattention of another driver, do not hesitate to schedule a free consultation at our firm.
