Back and Spinal Injury

What is a back injury?

Back injuries are a result of damage or trauma to the bones, muscles or other tissues in the back. Motor vehicle accidents can result in a range of back injuries from minor lower and upper back pains and sprains to more severe injuries of the spine like herniated discs or para and quadriplegia.

These injuries are often a result of sudden movements such as impact from a motor vehicle accident. Back injuries can occur from collisions at different speeds.

How long can a back injury last for?

Depending on the severity of your injury, back injuries can last for a little as a few days to permanent damage.
