Any type of back injury following a car accident may be severe and life-threatening. This can impact your ability to earn an income and result in years of disability. For this reason, it is important to consult with a personal injury lawyer. At Robert J. DeBry & Associates we strive to help our clients every step of the way.
Here’s what you can do after a back injury resulting from a car accident:
Get Medical Help Right Away
You might not think that your back is not hurt following an accident, but many such injuries do not reveal themselves until some days after. There are simply too many issues involved, from your spinal cord to the ligaments in your neck. You need to see a doctor right away to take x-rays and a diagnosis issued.
Physical Therapy Sessions
Recovering from a back injury can take a long time. There may be many painful physical therapy sessions in the future. Follow a doctor’s recommendations for recovery. This may include physical therapy.
