Tampa Back Injury Attorney

Back injuries are common in many types of personal injury claims, from car accidents to slip and falls. If you injured your back due to someone else’s negligence, you could have the right to bring a claim for compensation against the responsible party. Back injuries can be complicated claims, especially when the negligent party’s insurance claims your injuries are not that severe or caused by something else. Don’t get taken advantage of in your injury claim; let an experienced Tampa back injury attorney help.

Back Injuries in Tampa Personal Injury Claims

At Moore Law, we have nearly 30 years of experience assisting clients just like you fight for the compensation they deserve after a back injury. We understand how insurance companies think and typically undervalue back injuries, especially soft tissue ones. However, soft tissue back injuries have value, which is why you need an attorney who can protect your rights and ensure the insurance company doesn’t try to extend a lowball offer.

The most common types of back injuries in a personal injury claim are strains and sprains, herniated or bulging disks, vertebra fractures, and spinal cord injuries. They can range from minor soft tissue damage to permanent damage and paralysis.

Back injuries in personal injury cases can come from car accidents, slip and falls, gunshot wounds, medical malpractice, defective products, and more.

Minor Soft Tissue Back Injuries

Straining or spraining your back is very common in personal injury claims. These types of injuries can happen slowly or in an accident (acute injury). Sprains are common in falls, sudden twisting movements, or trauma that causes the back to move unnaturally. Strains can come from pulling a muscle or tendon and twisting as well. Many soft tissue back injuries recover with some physical therapy, little rest, and medication. There are some instances where soft tissue injuries can turn more serious, which is why you should always see a doctor after an injury, even if you think it’s minor.

Herniated Disks

Bulging or herniated disks are also common in Tampa back injury claims. There are problems with your disks (the rubbery cushions) between your spinal vertebrae. Some disk injuries resolve without surgical intervention, while others require surgery due to nerve impingement.

Fractured Vertebra

A fractured vertebra can be a gap or crack in the vertebrae, which sometimes happens as the vertebrae weaken with age. However, they can also be caused by trauma such as a vehicle collision or fall.

Spinal Cord Damage

Spinal cord injuries are very serious and result in paralysis in many cases. The level of the spine that is damaged will correspond to the level of paralysis. The higher on the spine there is damage, the higher the paralysis. Spinal cord damages are typically permanent and will require a lifetime of treatment.
