    Compensation for car crash back injuries


    Car crashes can happen for a myriad of different reasons. However there can also be a variety of different injuries caused in such a crash. The impact of the crash will determine whether anyone involved will receive injuries, and if so, how severe they are.

    Car crash back injuries can be particularly serious because the spinal column can be involved. The impact can potentially cause all kinds of problems, whether it is a broken spine or damage to the spinal column itself.

    Even if someone turns out not to have any such problems they will usually be transferred from the car to the hospital on a spinal board. This is done to prevent any potential problems from getting worse.

    Could car crash back injuries change your life?

    Definitely, yes – if they are severe you could be left paralysed as a result. This might mean paralysis from the waist down or from the neck down. In any event there would be major changes to get used to as you adjust to living a different life.

    Even when paralysis is not part of the equation you would have to spend many weeks recovering from your injuries. You may still have to walk with a stick or with a limp if your back injuries are severe enough to cause pain throughout the rest of your life.
