I’m sorry to hear about your back injury. Back injuries can be among some of the most painful injuries that can occur in a car accident. Back injuries can be debilitating as well, which can cause victims to be unable to return to work or to live pain free.
Depending on the circumstances of the accident, a back injury may be obvious after an accident, or it could go undiagnosed for weeks, months, or even years. Some of the most common back injuries involve herniated discs, which occur when force is put on the body and the disc bursts or gets out of alignment. There are a number of surgeries that can help repair damaged discs, including spinal fusion, disc replacement, discectomies, laminectomies, or foraminotomies.
It’s important to be thoroughly checked out by a doctor if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, even if you feel like you were not harmed. Motorcyclists involved in accidents can sustain serious injuries, even if they can’t tell that they were seriously harmed. Back problems may not become apparent until months or years later, when it may be too late to get sufficient help.
