What Causes Back and Neck Injuries?
Anytime that your spine is severely affected by a harsh enough force, a back or neck injury can occur. This amount of force can occur from any of the following:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Train accidents
- Boat accidents
- Bus accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Construction accidents
- Nursing home abuse
In a motor vehicle accident, the force that can be put upon the body can cause severe whiplash and fractures to the back and the spine. This may result in you having to simply wear a neck brace for a while, but can also cause the complete breakage of your back or even paralysis.
Anytime that a doctor or surgeon is expected to perform a procedure or prescribe a medication for your treatment, it is expected that they will do so within their code of ethics and to the best of their ability. If this doesn't occur and an error causes you to have a back or spine injury, you may have legal recourse because of medical malpractice.
If you have a fall on another's property or suffer an injury because a construction site was not properly protected, your injury may also be due to the negligence of another.
Finally, if you or a loved one are injured due to maltreatment or neglect in a nursing home, there may be legal grounds to file a lawsuit.
