There are a number of factors that affect the type of car accident injury you’re likely to sustain, including the location your vehicle is hit, the speed of impact, and the safety features in your vehicle. Even in the mildest accident, however, you could sustain a back injury. Some back injuries only require rest to heal, others may require surgeries and physical therapy, and severe injuries may result in permanent disability.
If you’ve been in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you deserve compensation to cover the cost of damages you’ve incurred. Part of the compensation will likely be awarded for your injury and the related medical bills. Understanding your injury will ensure you know what you are owed.
