Accident Lawyer Representing Injured Victims in New York City
When you suffer from injuries resulting from a car accident, it can be difficult to deal with the pain and physical limitations you experience. Back injuries are among the most difficult to deal with.
When it comes to car accident injuries, most people think of whiplash of the neck as the most common, but many people also suffer from back injuries when car crashes occur.
Low back pain is a common injury after rear end collision or being in a side-impact accident. In fact, more than half of rear-end collisions cause low back injuries, and a whopping 75 percent of side-impact accidents cause low back injuries.
Whiplash Involves the Back
The reason the lower back is injured in these crashes is related to the common neck injury known as whiplash. The high level of compression to the lower back during the first two stages of a whiplash injury causes damage to the back as well as the more immediate and severe pain you might experience in the neck.
Back injuries can come in the form of:
- Disc injury
- Soft tissue damage
- Damage to the facet joints of the
- Injury to the sacroiliac joints
Delayed Onset of Back Pain
More than 70 percent of people who go to the ER after an accident still feel some pain six weeks later(“7 Delayed Symptoms Following Car Accident” ), according to a study conducted at the University of North Carolina.
Sometimes, your back might not hurt the day after the accident. The problem is that pain from crash-related injuries might appear later as inflammation develops. For this reason, it is critical to undergo a thorough medical evaluation as soon as possible after an accident, as any delay could allow the at-fault party to argue that your injuries were caused by an intervening incident.
