Back injuries can cause serious damage to your body, health, and future. At DuBoff & Associates, Chartered, we understand the severities of this type of injury and we want to help you get through it.
Baltimore, MD Back Injury Attorneys
Our attorneys will walk you through the next steps after you’ve suffered a back injury.
There are many different ways that back injuries can occur. One important thing to remember about accidents is that they do not discriminate; anyone can suffer a serious injury at any time. Whether you suffered a slip and fall injury or were involved in a car accident, we want to help.
Types of back injuries may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Herniated discs
- Lower back injury (lumbar spine)
- Neck injury (cervical spine)
- Upper back injury (thoracic spine)
The human spine is made up of vertebrae and discs, which allow us to have our range of motion. In between the vertebrae are discs, and they help cushion the spine. Especially with age, the tissue in your discs may wear, giving you less of a cushion and possibly causing damage. This can cause severe pain, numbness, weakness, or in some cases, no pain at all.
Having a herniated disc is a common injury, and luckily, it is treatable. A discectomy is a common procedure in which a surgical team will remove the disc that is causing you pain. There are several different options for removal or treatment for herniated discs, which an experienced medical professional can explain to you.
If you do not seek medical attention quickly, your back injury could become much more serious. Any small or big movements can affect your injury, and you don’t want it to be any worse than it already is.
You may need surgery, long-term care, rehabilitation, physical therapy, medication, and more. These treatments will help your health and well being, in addition to giving you a brighter future, but they will not be cheap. You need proper compensation for your injuries to help you manage the financial stress that an accident can place on you and your family.
Although surgery is a scary option, you should get a second opinion of another doctor to see that your treatment plan makes the most sense for your situation. Unless, of course, it is an emergency situation, you should check with more than one doctor on what they think would be the strongest plan of action.
We want you to be as healthy as possible, with as little financial burden as possible. Allow our experienced personal injury attorneys to help you and your family in a time of need.
We want you to focus on what is most important: healing. You should not have to deal with the pressure of figuring out how you’re going to pay for your treatments. You should, however, focus on getting better and stronger every day.
Keep All of Your Medical Records
It is crucial that you have documentation of your medical records for later access. It’s important to have these because an attorney will help you sort through them to help prove that your injury was not pre-existing and that it was, in fact, a result of the accident. Whether it was a slip and fall accident or a car crash, our goal is to see that you find justice and compensation after suffering a back injury.
If you suffered a serious back injury due to a car accident, there are a few steps you should take. First, you should seek medical attention immediately, as walking around with an untreated back injury can be a recipe for disaster. You should have someone take pictures of the injuries if they are outwardly visible, in addition to keeping records of any internal images, like MRI scans.
What type of compensation could you receive?
Our attorneys want you to get better. We also want to see that you receive just compensation for the injuries you have suffered. There are different types of damages for which you may receive compensation. These damages may include pain, suffering, loss of income due to missing work, medical treatments, long-term care, rehabilitation, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.
