Symptoms of a back or spinal injury
Diagnosing a back injury is never easy. As a result, you should see a doctor as soon as you experience pain. Additionally, there are different types of back injuries that show their own unique symptoms. For example, the symptoms for a chronic back or spinal pain injury are a dull, burning sensation in the lower back and legs. Chronic back pain may take months, if not years, to treat and can cause the completion of daily activities and work to be especially difficult. As a result, it is in your best interests to contact a Vermont law firm immediately, if you suffer any type of back or spinal injury.
An acute back pain injury, on the other hand, causes a sharp pain felt deep in the lower back. This type of injury usually affects a specific location on the back of the victim, and while intermittent, can last several months. Other types of back and spinal injuries can cause loss of motor skills, loss of control of the bowels and bladder, and loss of sexual function.
Treatments for a back or spinal injury
Since there are many types of back and spine injuries, treatments vary. For serious spinal injuries, surgery is often the best choice. Many people who suffer back injuries are prescribed extensive bed rest in order to take weight off the back and allow it to heal. Physical therapy can strengthen muscles and alleviate pain. In addition, medications can reduce muscle spasticity and relieve pain. Receiving medical assistance should be your first concern if you suffer a back or spinal injury. Next, you must contact a knowledgeable Vermont personal injury attorney.
What type of compensation are you eligible to receive and how can a lawyer help?
Compensation for a back injury starts with medical bills. If your lawsuit is successful, you may receive compensation for chiropractic care, therapy, and even surgery. You may also receive reimbursement for lost wages if your injury causes you to miss work. Lastly, with the assistance of an experienced Vermont spine injury attorney, you may receive compensation for pain and suffering. Your lawyer can gather evidence to support your case, explain the law to you, and fight for you. Without an attorney, recovering damages may be difficult.
