Get Just Compensation for Your Back Injury

Your back is one of the more important parts of your body. If it suffers some type of injury, you may not be able to work, enjoy recreational activities or otherwise participate in everyday life. Fortunately, back injuries are oftentimes compensable under Florida law. That is, if someone’s negligent conduct caused your injury, you may be able to receive compensation from the person responsible for it.If you have an injury stemming from someone’s negligent or wrongful actions, it is important to talk to a knowledgeable Miami personal injury attorney as soon as possible. After all, you may incur great expense in treating and recovering from your back injury. Furthermore, you likely have a finite amount of time both to assert your legal rights and to file a civil action.

Common Types of Back Injuries

Your back runs from the base of your neck to your tailbone. To support your body and facilitate movement, your back includes a spinal column, spinal cord, cartilage discs, muscles and ligaments. Back injuries come in a few different types, but here are some common ones:

• Broken Bones

• Herniated, crushed or bulging discs

• Nerve damage

• Torn, pulled or strained muscles

Automobile collisions, slips, falls and other types of accidents may leave you with an acute or chronic back injury. Still, the symptoms of a back injury may not show up immediately. Therefore, it is vitally important that you seek a medical evaluation following any type of accident. If you have suffered trauma to your back, a physician may use X-rays, CT scans, MRI scans or other tests to make a proper diagnosis and develop a treatment strategy.

Compensation for Your Back Injury

You should not have to pay for the consequences of someone else’s negligent conduct. If someone caused you to sustain a back injury, you may need to pursue a negligence claim. To do so, you must prove the following elements:

• The person had a duty not to harm you
• The person breached his or her duty
• The conduct caused your injury
• You suffered harm

Because most personal injury claims require extensive documentation, you should keep comprehensive records of the accident, your medical treatment and the recovery process. You may also have to work with an experienced investigator or other professionals to help you prove your claim.
