Whether back injuries occur in a sudden accident, in a slip and fall, or over time on the job site, many of the injuries are not the fault of the injured party. Negligence may involve an inattentive driver or a company that did not address a hazard on its premises. In such cases, the negligent party should contribute financially to the well-being of the injured person.
The recovery process for back and spine issues often involves lengthy physical therapy. Specialized practitioners may be required, such as chiropractors, neurologists, orthopedic surgeons, and massage therapists.
In addition to receiving medical bills, the injured party often must miss work for long periods. All of these factors go into the settlement sought by an accident injury attorney, who can navigate the legal system and win fair and just compensation for the injured person.
