What Qualifies as a Back Injury

Back injuries come in a variety of forms. The severity of a back injury can vary greatly from person to person and vary depending on the type of injury a person experiences. Below is a list of some common types of back injuries. Note, a physician should conduct an examination of your pain if you believe you may have suffered a back injury. Your doctor will determine what type of injury you have and what types of treatment or rehabilitation options may be best for you. Also, if insurance is a concern, take note that you should be able to receive compensation for your medical expenses if your injury is the result of another person or entity’s negligence or intentional acts.


Sprains and strains are the most common type of back injury, but they are painful nonetheless. Sprains typically result from a sudden, unexpected movement (like a fall or twist), or from a sudden traumatic impact. Strains result from overextending, twisting, or pulling muscles in the back. Strains can even occur on the job, which would mean you are likely owed some type of worker’s compensation.

Bulging or Herniated Discs

Inside your spine, there are soft “rubbery” discs that cushion your vertebrae. The exterior of the disc is solid, but the interior is more like gelatin. When a serious back-related strain or injuries occur, such injuries can cause the soft interior of the disc to tear through the surrounding vertebrae. This type of injury commonly results in symptoms like:

  1. Arm and leg pain
  2. Numbness and tingling
  3. Muscle weakness.

But, other symptoms may result from bulging or herniated discs, too.


The term “fractured vertebrae” refers to when a crack or gap appears in the vertebrae. Traumatic impacts can cause vertebrae to fracture, as well as falls. Common symptoms of fractured vertebrae include:

  • Back pain
  • Lost height
  • Hunched posture.

Damage to the Spinal Cord

Damage to the spinal cord is very serious. Spinal cord damage includes damage to any segment of the spinal cord or the nerves that are at the end of the spinal canal. A damaged spinal cord can result in temporary or even permanent loss of motion in some or most of your body. Spinal cord injuries are no joke. After being involved in a serious accident, you should strongly consider having your spinal cord examined if you experience loss of motion in your hands or feet, extreme back and neck pain, or any other symptoms associated with spinal cord injuries.

Common Causes of Neck and Back Injuries

Back injuries occur every single day, and they occur for a variety of reasons. Some common causes of back injuries are listed below:

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of back injuries. Even fender benders can result in back and neck injuries like whiplash or other sprains. If you have been in a car accident, it can be a good idea to have a doctor examine you for any signs that you were injured because some injuries may not have symptoms that are immediately apparent. Also, by visiting the doctor soon after a wreck, you can help create medical records of the injuries you experienced during your accident. Such medical records can be useful for proving your claims later in court or during a settlement negotiation.

Even when you are dealing with insurance companies outside of court, our experienced attorneys know how to negotiate with insurance companies to get you what you deserve. The average settlement for a back injury in auto accidents in NYC is unclear because settlements vary greatly depending on the severity of the injury and other factors involved in your wreck. But an experienced neck and back injury attorney knows how to present the facts of your case in a way that maximizes what compensation you receive.


Doctors and health care providers often conduct operations or provide treatments that involve sensitive and complicated parts of the human bodies. Some of our most complex body parts are in and around the spine and neck. Tragic results can occur when doctors or other health care providers make mistakes in how they care for your back or neck. Back injuries can also result from doctors installing defective medical equipment during back or neck surgeries. Some doctors have even been so careless that they have left scalpels or other instruments inside of a patient while operating on the patient’s neck.

Slip and Fall Accidents

These can lead to back injuries when the property conditions of a business or home are not safe, and a person falls or slips because of the unsafe condition. Back injuries from falls can also occur on construction sites, or even at a business where water was negligently left on the floor. Some falls may not result in serious injuries, but sometimes a serious fall can even result in spinal cord damage. If you believe you were injured because of unsafe conditions on someone’s property, our attorney can help you determine who is at fault and who is responsible for the back injuries you have suffered.

Workplace Accidents

An injury on the job can occur because of something simple, like lifting heavy objects or doing repetitive tasks. Or, workplace back injuries can occur while operating forklifts or completing other complicated tasks at work. If your back injury happened at work while on the job, you likely have a workers’ compensation claim against your employer for the pain you have suffered and the monetary losses you suffered because of your injury.
