Compensation for Back Injury with a Michigan Injury Lawyer

Injuries to the spinal column are among the most common and debilitating injuries afflicting Americans today.

Back and spine injuries often occur when your back muscles are strained, like when you lift something heavy, or from a fall or sudden twist as you slip on an icy sidewalk. Fortunately, these types of injuries don’t usually mean permanent damage and usually heal on their own in a fairly short time.

Back Injuries Can Be Serious and Life-Changing

More acute back injuries may result from trauma, such as a car accident, a fall, or a sudden blow to the back or the top of the head. Acute injuries include:

  • Tearing or rupture of ligaments or muscles.
  • Torn or ruptured disc. If the tear is large enough, the disc can “rupture,” allowing the cushioning “jelly” inside to leak and press against nearby nerves.
  • Compression of nerves

The most serious back injuries stem from fractured or dislocated vertebrae. If such an injury is not treated promptly, the broken or dislocated bone can damage the spinal cord and result in permanent paralysis.
