On Behalf of | Sep 15, 2014 | Back injuries, Tampa Attorney, Tampa Personal Injury

Many accidents can lead to painful and permanent back injuries. Injuries can include general lower back pain, paralysis and loss of mobility. It is a good idea to become familiar with accidents with potential to cause back pain and long term issues.

If you have been involved in any of these personal injury accidents listed below, you will want to make sure you have acquired proper medical care. You will also want to seek out an attorney in case you are able to receive compensation.

Car accidents

Whiplash is common after a car accident because the head whips forward and backward in rapid motion. People tend to associate whiplash with the immediate area around the neck but due to tension placed on muscles in the upper back, and down the spine, serious injury in the back can occur.

Truck accidents

Similar to a car accident, the sudden jolts that often take place during a truck accident can do a large amount of damage to the body, especially the back.

Workplace injuries

Avoiding back injuries is a major safety challenge within the workplace. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), more than one million workers suffer back injuries each year.

Slip and fall accidents

Some people are shocked to learn how many people are seriously injured in slip and fall accidents. Slips and fall premises liability cases can happen on the street, at work, in a supermarket, a construction site or on private property of some sort. Back injuries are common problems in those involved in a slip and fall accident.
